Well, I suppose I might as well get used to the (apparent) fact that I am no longer doing a daily blog -- this year anyway. I miss the discipline of the daily posts but things are different this year and that is just how it is.
This morning I am beginning to rework the cat girl. I want to try to get her to look more "finished" than she used to. I also want her to be a stand-alone character rather than be connected to Chime Cat. Originally I tried to make her look like a resident of Cloud City (the place Chime Cat was visiting). Her skirt and tail were meant to look like clouds and a sky. For this incarnation she will have her own story. She also gets glass taxidermy eyes this time around.
Today I am working on "aiming" the glass eyes. I will need to do more plaster cloth reconstruction on her face but this is my first stopping/drying point. She won't be even close to perfect but I am enjoying the learning progress/process that goes along with working with what I've got.
Here is her "before" look from late January, 2012.
