    Samantha, Even as simple as it is, I love the base you put your fox on. Some people put to much stuff on the base and take away from the mount.

    Nice cat Amy! as always.

    Amy, that is a very unique pose, and it looks great. Looks like the judges thought so as well. What did you use for the tongue?

    Thanks guys, and yes, I did use the the real tongue. I skinned it out and tanned it, then filled it with apoxie sculpt and shaped it. When dry I airbrushed it pink, and used a paintbrush to lightly paint the "barbs" on the tongue white. Then I dipped it in artificial water for a glossy look. It was a pain, but looks pretty cool. :)
