This is 1/2 of the overall sculpture planned. The lion is almost ready for baking - just some minor adjustments and fur texturing to do. It's quite large - 13cm tall at the top of the head. Nose to tip of tail down the angle is 19cm.

Although lions are very popular, I find them a huge challenge, is not often that we see lions on homemade figures section. That's a very expressive figure, not only head, but body expression is also evident. Very brave from you making lions during your birthday! Laughing
Looking forward to see the other half that I suppose it is a victim. affraid cheers

Great and expressive lion! The musculature is especially realistic-looking. Can't wait to see him finished  bounce .

affraid What a great lion!  Shocked Applause Applause Applause The pose is amazing!  drunken 

The only thing I would critisise is the mane. Maybe you can give the mane a better texture with a brush? Then it will probably more look like hair Wink

Thanks everyone for the feedback and Bonobo for your fair critique also. The mane is a deliberate choice, to go with this technique is perhaps not quite as realistic as other methods but I like the effect. The musculature is also slightly exaggerated - you could call it 'artistic licence' Very Happy I'm having a lot of fun with this model and keeping in mind the overall finished effect.

Roger the other 1/2 is not a victim but I am keeping that a secret for now!

I definitely think some of the major companies can take some hints from us collectors who make homemade models and those who just do re-paints  Smile Applause When I see them on the forum, I'm just in awe  drunken

Can't wait to see more, this is impressive, especially for the work you did on the muscles. Felids seem quite hard for me to work on as they have incredibly "twisty" bodies and folds of skin...somehow a daunty subject to work on.
