Ittie Bittie Kitties...Again

Andy, the face you have in the photo looks really good, minus the ruff.

I know it's a little late, but I managed to snag a pretty decent top-down head shot for the loaf. I think you captured the basically squarish shape of the muzzle. When you add in the cheeks and fur around his face, you get a concave contour for the shape of the head:

That actually sets my mind at ease.  I thought I might be too square, but this should that I got it pretty good.  Yaay.  I'll be sculpting the body and leg fur of the sitting one today.  Tonight, I will add ear armatures.  Tomorrow ear sculpting and Friday will be finishing the face fluff and necks, throats and chests.

OK, big update today:

 

In process shots with ear armatures, un-shaped:

I gave the loaf ear reduction surgery and filed them to shape.  They still need detail sculpting, along with the face, head, neck and shoulders. I expect to finish the sculpting on this one today, save for the base.

Last night, I concentrated on the sitting cat, working the legs, shoulders, breast, face, and head.  I also gave it hip reduction surgery as I had sculpted its pa-donk-a-donk a bit too large.  This is a rather thin cat.  One note is that the lump in the corner of one of his eyes is not an error, it is a large mole that the RL cat has.  This one is now done, save for the tail and base (The tail will be wrapping around the base (which will be a cushion).  I hope to get the base and tail done tonight.

The siting cat was accepted by @klarg1.  The Loaf needed to have his wrists showing more.  Here is the final on that:

      There's a French wargame called "Alkemy" which has a faction of pseudo-Egyptian cat-people called the Khaliman Republic (or République Khalimane in the original).  A few years back I snagged a starter set of 5 resin figures I found on clearance because, well, cat people.
       
      Currently I am involved in an elaborate and fascinating campaign combining White Wolf's World of Darkness (the one in Vampire the Masquerade second edition and Werewolf the Apocalypse) with its "Exalted" game, second edition (which was originally sold as the prehistory of the World of Darkness, although they backed away from that pretty fast).
       
      This character is a PC for that game.  The person is a lycanthrope, or rather a feline therianthrope.  He has a human form, but I painted up the cat man because it's more fun.
       
      This is the first small-scale non-terrain resin I've ever assembled or painted.  It was a little fiddly and I was worried about its fragility.  There are a few places with what is probably flash that I didn't have the courage to try to slice off.
       
      Comments welcome.

      These are a couple of the animal companion sets that I painted for one of my players (minus the spider which I have not finished yet).
       
      I didn't want to paint the cat like a plain panther and I decided to use an ocelot as inspiration. My favorite is the little wolverine guy even though the photos make the river rocks look like pastel M&M's lol.
       
      My usual background got ruined so I have to make do until I get a new one printed or buy a fancy one. The bear looks better in hand and I used blacks and browns in his fur so he doesn't look so flat as he does in the photos.
       
      I am not happy with the fake snow and how it turned out. It looked really good when I put it on but not so good once the glue dried. I guess next time I will try baking soda and see how that works out. These are for gaming though so baking soda wouldn't have been the best choice probably.
       
      Anyway, here they are! C&C welcome.

      I wanted to share this here for those of you not on the social media outlets.
       
      My daughter's latest project was the Crazy Cat Lady that I got her for Christmas.  She painted the cats first which just amazed me because some of the detail she put on them was awesome.  Once she was done and I could not get her to touch up anything else she wanted to base.  I decided she would do it all except the super glue.  So away she went with craft glue and basing materials. She has a few more things I got her for Christmas and then birthday is in less than two weeks and I have a couple more minis for then too.  Should be a busy year if actually sit down and paint.

      I finally finished it!

      In keeping with the month that hosts Halloween, I painted up some familiars! 
       
      Very simply done, starting with grey liner, nightmare black (a little extra purple for the cat) and heraldic red for the eyes (cat and raven) & mouth (bat). Drop of linen white for the cat's eyes, and a drop of dragon gold for her forehead. 
       
      Still need to clean up the bases a bit. Otherwise done!
