    Well this has been the hardest project ive tackled before. Also the biggest. Previous biggest was a coyote, and a lynx. Got 2 full 8 hour days and a couple evenings into it so far adjusting and babysitting and tweaking to my reference. Been bagging it overnight and when im at work so it dries slow and i can tweak. It's starting to look like a cat to me now but I'm also feeling a bit of tunnel vision. 20220124_215159.jpg 20220124_215241.jpg

    A full head on face shot is the tell. Those eyes are the heart of the cat. I see some areas that need to be taxied but all in all not bad. I will pass on what many told me when I was doing my first cats....reference, reference, reference!!
    Needs a good shampoo and blown dry to really get a soft fluffy cat.
