I'm a professional Illustrator by trade but I find that every so often I get the urge to make something dimensional.
I guess it goes back to the early years when I used to make dioramas for my Gamorra toys.
This Leopard is the most recent thing that I just finished making.
He's inspired by drawings in my sketchbook. You can see them in the background.
He's made of aluminum foil, wire, MDF for the base, and Super Scupley. He's about 6 inches tall.
He's painted with acrylics and will be protected by a coat or 3 of a matte finished sealer.
I like the way he turned out so I'm sure I'll do more cats and other animals in the future.
Let me know what you think of him.
