PostSubject: Hugo the cat   Fri Mar 11, 2011 1:36 am

For my dads birthday, I made him his favorite cat of al time, Hugo.

We unfortunetly had to put him down a while ago, due to old age and sicknes, so I wanted to give him a little memorie of him

I made it a little bigger than my previous figures, and that was a bit of a mistake Laughing

It took forever to make pale


Well, now it´s finished, and for my very first housecat, I´m pretty happy with it, exept for one thing
(the same thing as usual Rolling Eyes )

So please, do NOT look at the eyes, they look absolutly terrible, but I´m gonna try and fix that during the weekend

Pics;

This is his begging pose, he always did this when he wanted something










The schleich cats look more like kittens in comparishment

He's fabulous, I think his eyes look great. You've done a brilliant job on this, I always find it hard making a cat look like a cat and you've captured the animal perfectly.

Thanx guys Very Happy

The problem with the eyes was that I put to many layers of paint on them, since I was never pleased with them.

You may not see it in the photos, but the eyes stood out like fish eyes What a Face

So now I have scraped of the eyes and will make another try in paining them Laughing
