PostSubject: 1:20 Geoffroy's cat (Leopardus geoffroyi)   Sat Jun 20, 2015 11:15 pm

Geoffroy's cat -the next member of the Felidae Family- is a spotted wild cat about the size of a domestic cat. As he is native to a southern America region which roughly shapes what is Argentina, it could be said he is a truly Argentinian cat.



Curiously, he is the only cat which has been observed to stand up on their hind legs using their tail as a support to scan the surrounding landscape. Just like meerkats and weasels do. You can never say an Argentinian is not able to do something  tongue  tongue  tongue
See this if you dont believe me...

(...and also spotted...like the cat )
lol!  lol!  lol!

Unfortunately I couldn't find a picture in this posture... instead I have found this beautiful one as the main reference for my sculpting:

I know the pose you're talking is not exactly this one and I a
m not even sure it is a Geoffroy's cat once it is identified as a bengal cat. Wink This is a very small figure with lots of markings, this time you'll need a microscope. Laughing

Agree! this is not a Geoffroy´s cat.
However, I suppose the alleged scanning posture of Geoffroy´s cat should be something very specific that I would like to see, like the way the servals jumps to hunt, not used by any other kind of cat... scratch

Incredible! The cat is not as wide as two of your fingers and you painted it with lots of spots and details! Shocked
