As I already anticipated in other posts, I have started a 1:20 Siberian Tiger model.  

Here he is after the sculpting process.

Now I am going to start the painting following the amazing Kosta Rules

Wow, very impresive model affraid cheers
Beautiful head, beautiful body, very nice texture, great posture, ..and with paint job I`m shure, will be great. :)
I just want to say something...if you let me of course,
maybe I`m wrong....but I think, the head it`s a bit too big for that body.. ?!? scratch
I`m not shure...maybe becouse of the photos..it look`s to me like that..
And, just a small tips from me....if you can make the fur on the stomach, to look longer.., also on the   cheeks ...will be great :))
I mean, not bigger, but with longer hair..like a texture :)
But this model has sooo much potential...and so much improvement, from the old tiger.. Applause

thank you, Kosta, for your positive comments, your opinions are always welcomed.

I think you are right, and I will try to correct the model with your points, although it is going to be hard as it has been made with epoxy clay.

Neither the photos are good, anyway, but it is the best I can make with my cell.

On the other hand, looking photographs in Internet, it is incredible how polymorphous tigers are, specially considering how older they can be...Crying or Very sad

So, I would like to have a tiger at home, but it would be a litle bit dangerous...Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Thanks again. I hope you to be always frank!!!

Thank you, that you took my comments in such a positive way :)))
I know, it is imposible to change the size of the head, ot the body... and maybe it`s very hard to change the texture.... so don`t worry about that. This is just an extra things...
Your model is still very very nice. I realy like it :)
I also want a real tiger Laughing But I don`t want to be his food Laughing

So, after some minor changes I am now in the Step 6 of the Kosta Tutorial. This is the result in the "workshop"

" />

The changes are difficult to appreciate with so low quality photograph. However I  hope painting work will bring them out more clearly...

Very good so far Applause
The tiger it`s allmost alive allready Very Happy
Maybe I can say only for the eyes....becouse maybe you are finished with them...?
Try to do the black around the eye bigger....especially under the eye...and also where is going to the nose.
Also, for the eye, it is better to make a bit more dark color for the apple of the eye, I mean this more green part (green with ochre...and a little brown paint)....and make it a bit bigger. And then, a small black point , for the iris :)

I really like the texture on this one! If I may ask, how did you keep him balanced before he was cured?

Ohh!! I suddenly realize what you mean. I suppose you mean harmonious,  with the proper proportion of parts or elements in the design?

Well, I work "against" some drawings and photographs, adding small pieces of clay to the armature, step by step, curing them using a heater lamp  before continuing adding more pieces. I Hope it helps.

Looking really good! With Kosta's tutorial, I am sure painting will end perfect. When it is finished, let's go all to Siberia! Laughing
