proto-moggy by snuurg proto-moggy by snuurg
- last of an ancient barbarian race of cat-lords, and yet to declare his regency...

...hmm, sounds kinda familiar...

- just taken this photo (well, one of a series) out in the garden again, but things just aren't working out right digicam-wise, light-wise, or whatever, could not get meself a better one than this... hopefully the shots I got with my real camera will turn out better, but really I think the day's just wrong for it all...then again, bad workmen blame their tools, and all that.

- anyway, finished this geezer a couple of days or so ago, extremely late christmas prezzie for my big brother: Prince Smilo Thylax, sabretooth - think I might have overdone it on the tiger-y side of things, though, he might've been better with slightly less emphasis on the striping, I was going for a suggestion of the beginnings of what would evolve into tiger stripes in later generations, but then kinda got carried away when I got to the face. Hmm, anyroad - today's been the first day - not at work, not raining, not just grimly overcast - that's been anything like good enough for any kind of pic of this sorta stuff, but really could've done with a bit of cloud-cover up there so's there wasn't such a glare off the sword and stuff, and the colours are too washed out....maybe I'll post again if and when I get a better one, might just stick with more of a studio-kinda pic...
