That’s fantastic, all around.

Are you posting on Reddit or other 3d forums or make an Instagram for it?
I post on Reddit Zbrush site & Twitter. I should maybe post on 3D design reddit as well but there is a 2 weeks rule that you cannot post same youtube on multiple forums until after 2 weeks or something.

Anyway, I play with another concept. So here are the 2 concepts together

More action Pose

Update. Took 2 weeks to break, but I am back. Pose done. Need to add jewelry on her hand, & a stand, or whatever she lies on. But this is one statue where a stand seems unneeded. I am pondering adding a cat or kitten also. Maybe I will make some mockups. But for sure it's extra effort. I never modeled a cat before.

Lol autocorrect, meant top cheek…her left one
Still do not understand how the cheek (on the face right), has anything to do with the legs, or how the cheek can be stretched. But thanks.

I refined the model more. Balance the breasts (mostly increase the size of left breast) work on the butt area (it was pain in the S) & some general fine-tune.

I will add a mona lisa smile & adjust the eyes to look more forward.

I made this mock-up. The next step is adding the kitty & necklaces. I still haven't decided on the stand.

Those cheeks are perfect ;) 😆

Did you reference it of a cat you had once?
I am not a cat person, I use rerefence photos. I struggled a lot to get the proportion/shape right, as the reference pictures are of different kittens & not best angles for reference. Also cat is very furry, And you cannot get the correct look until you add fur to it. So I add fur as a sculpting layer, then hide/ show it while working on the base shape until I got it right (At least I think).

Cat
Kitty
Kitty cat
You forgot pu$$y, that's my favorite. :grin:

Anyway, here is how they compose together. I give her also a subtle "Mona Lisa"smile. Colored her eyes green (which is supposed to be the correct color for Cat woman)

Finished the modeling. Now the hard part started. Spliting the models into subparts for 3d printing.

STLS file ready. The Chitubox STL slicer software keep hard crashing (required hard PC reset)). Maybe due to AMD card software update, but managed to line the sub-parts up, to be printed starting tomorrow.

Great work…cute kitty and cute kitten too

Are you gonna do like a diorama for the bg?
I do have a base, which I printed out later. But she lies down and do not need support, so people ( who print the model themselves) can certainly get creative in diorama.

Anyway, I finish painting the kitty. The kitty actually looks even cuter at it original size iRL view with naked eyes.

Model painted. Still waiting for clear coating.
Clear coating is the last process, hence I normally sit on a while, in case any areas need to touch up before finally clear coating.

My airbrush compressor went kaputt last night (it was failing for a while, probably due to forgetting to off the compressor & left it overnight.) The paint was well as seen below.

I tried to fix it, but I think the compressor has lost power & cannot go above 17psi. I work normally at 20psi. But can go up or down depending on need.

But this time, I will get a compressor with an air tank that suppose to make it last longer & produce more consistent air flow. In any case, I am not feeling the base, but lets see what I can get after painting.

Next will be the videoshoot. I made some videoshoots with natural lights. Will do extra with studio lights (at night later) & see which are better for final use. After which I will prepare for upload to my stores.
The part I hate most is the commercial part (sales, promotion etc), if I can I rather someone else do this, so I can focus on the creativity, art/technical parts like my iRL work.

I am also starting to think about what will be the next project.
