I like caracals. I know they frequently look comical with those outlandish ears, so I tried to make him look like something you should take more seriously. Unfortunately he ended up looking mostly just cuddly. But at least the fur turned out not too bad considering the amount of time I spent trying to create a visible fur grain.
Truly outstanding work, I really like the detailing of his/her pelt. This could very easily be the portrait of a Bastet in Crinos form from the Werewolf: the Apocalypse RPG, a Ceilican or even a Bubasti (if the pelt were midnight instead of tan). BRAVO!!
Wow, that looks awesome!
