Tiger v2 by retinence Tiger v2 by retinence
I finally finished my refurbishing of Mr. Kitty. There is a lot that I still want to change but it'll require me to completely change major areas, which is kind of scary.

Things that are changed:
-Tail: gradient stripe.
-Toes: changed the skeleton and added in nail slots.
-Stripes: stabilized weak stripes and cleaned transitions.
-Neck: had to redo the neck and shoulder stripes because of internal conflict.
-Nose: it's more accurate than before.

Everything else was internal restructuring. I wanted to make the face a bit fatter but I'm really scared of going in there and changing everything. There are 134 pieces in the face; it's not fun to deal with when something needs changing.

I tried to redo the front legs but couldn't find a suitable replacement. So they're staying.

What would you charge for the instructions? :D
Reply
:iconretinence:
retinence Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012
I have no idea. Instructions would take forever. There are too many pieces that require complex attachments. I might do an exploded view so you can see the inside. However, it might not be as helpful as some people would like it to b.

Lego need to hire you. That is the most lifelike (or with the most character) of any animal I've seen made out of lego. Way to go!

Oh man, it would be amazing to be able to buy this monster in a canister XD However, even with instructions I don't think any buyers would be able to figure out how it goes together :P

Nice work! I'm usually not into Lego art, but this is incredible.
