So for my final year in uni I made a snow leopard!
It would have been so difficult to make if it weren't for Deborah Galvez and her fur tutorial, so big thank you! I've never worked with any kind of faux fur or fur before so this was a first time try! I used both fur transfer, hair punching and a bit of flocking.
The leopard is sculpted, moulded and then casted in silicone and filled with soft foam for a lighter weight. The fur is all faux fur, hair punched and fur transfered for the most part, then I've airbrushed and done some smaller spots with markers. Whiskers are basically feathers, which is also what I got from the tutorial, I also used some bristles from thick brushes. Claws and teeth are cast in resin. As it's quite soft you can open the jaw and pose the feet around a bit.
I'm very happy with the result!
