Hello! Long time no post!

This guy was a huge leap out of my comfort zone, But I finally remade the cheshire cat using everything i've elarned since the first attempt in 2014 (Photo at the bottom)
I've also made a second guy since but i'll post that seperately so that i don't clog up this post with photos
Hope yous like!

Handsculpted and textured solid parts using no moulds, which i then hand painted, coloured and shimmered.
The smile glows in the dark smile as do the claws
Body and tail created using faux fur that I hand coloured and the fluffy cheeks were applied tuft by tuft
I added some fuzzy flocking on the wrists and face to help blend - it took away from all the paintwork and texturing however so i think i'll scrap this stage in future
Semi pose-able: Limited movement in their limbs and tail the armature is weighted - it almost feels like holding a real kitten!


Youre mad Bonkers. Off your head


Can you stand on your head?

 That's adorable! I love his grin and the fact that you didn't make him pink.  Wink   His teeth are a great detail.
 And welcome back!

Amazing job and you have definitely progressed, skill-wise, since your pictured 2014 prior attempt.  The expression is equally joyous and menacing, the perfect look for the Cheshire Cat!

I honestly don't know why you don't have more views and comments on this masterpiece. He's remarkably well made and lifelike! I am rocking this.
