Animals ...work in progress

Yes, these are *not* done , but I am almost there. These wolves are my best ones to date .
I think it proves to me that when making animals , more I make better I get. I don't want to sound wrong , but just encourage (((you))) out there , that can't wait to make an excellent animal and get frustrated with your final results.... keep doing and you WILL get better!!*grin*
The cheetah is my first one. I love her.... as you can see .... she needs more spots.
Making animals can be very exhausting, so my best advise for those newbies is to take your time, take breaks by letting your work sit while you work on something else and them when it *calls* you, ( believe me, if you let , it will, grin) you will be excited and ready for it.

One last thing.... having pictures of the REAL animals in different poses is very important and helpful.

Oh Tita,

YES...those wolves AND the cheetah are most definitely PERFECTLY DONE! Oh, practice does make perfect, and knowing YOU to the extent and pleasure that I do, I understand how much time and perfection you take in order for them to be just right!!! The eyes are just perfectly spaced and when you sit them next to a photo, it is really BRILLIANT and a great way to compare the minis to the real animal...it is breathtaking!

THANK YOU for your wonderful encouragement on my shop! I AM SO BUSY!!!!!! I didn't get any orders yesterday, and maybe that is good; I just cannot keep up with much more during the school week.

How are you, my precious friend?

GROSSES BISES MA SOEUR ET AMIE!!! Nita

Oi Patricia, o guepardo está lindo mas os lobos são magníficos. Confesso que tornei-me fã do teu blog assim vi a foto do 'lobo uivando' em tua mão e agora esses novos estão demais!
Um abraço

I love to see work in progress, although these look finished to me ;)
No, even I can see the cheetah needs more spots. Both the cheetah and the wolves look fabulous! I LOVE the sitting wolf.
Did you ever see these photos of three cheetahs and a young antilope? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1246886/Pictured-Three-cheetahs-spare-tiny-antelopes-life--play-instead.html

Each of your little animal creations is a work of art. They're the most beautiful peices I've ever seen and when I think of how small they are I'm even more astounded by your talent.
