I only carved his head and front underbelly, leaving the natural cracks nature and the weather had made for the rest of the body. Head and tip of his tail are painted in acrylics and finished with satin clear. Glass eyes are by Megan.
and before you ask, that is a real leopard skin it is on.

I’m with Dave, kind of makes the hair on my back stand up with the realistic looking head as Woodshaver said. Good job. Mel

Be careful with that. It is going to scare someone so bad that they will shoot it or whack it with a shovel. Very nice work.
