Oh no, I've been sculpting...
Thought I'd try a little tiger, just because I've been looking at a lot of pictures of them lately. I used no references, just to see if I would be able to freehand the general shape.





I'm still having trouble with faces. I thought I could live with this, but the painting really emphasized how crooked the face was.

... so in the end I gave up, gouged out the eye, and redid the area with green stuff. Still not perfect, but at least it's somewhat better.




* - the dragon is so well hidden it isn't even in the photos. Razz

Thanks! Very Happy I should also add that he's pretty tiny. I tried making a big one, but that didn't turn out at all well... This guy was supposed to be Schleich size, but turned out quite a bit smaller.
