New little animation

I got together with Lizzy and Guy to create another animation for Eatliz.

It had very little time - did it in about 35 hours - I wish I had more time to give it a proper polish.
But anyway, here it is:

I see that it's not embedding very well, so you can watch it on youtube here.

Let's rig this kitty!

I got some notes from the cool guys at Argaman Creative, unfortunately decided to implement only some of them, because I really want to move on to rig and animation with this.

So this model doesn't look exactly like the reference, and it's not very clean either, but it'll do.
Hopefully animation will bring it to life and no one will care :)
I still want to get notes as some things are easy to fix and I'll probably have to make changes anyway during the rig process, so if you have any, please do not be quite.

Thanks for visiting!

(click on the images for the high-res version)

And here is my current to do list:
*position body correctly above the legs
*add folds and wrinkes to the suit
*add suit thickness where it's missing
*suit collar shape
*shirt collar topology
*marigold flower needs work
*palm topology, try to make more pointy & feminine
* check tail shape & add pointy bits
*overall topology check - loops and set up for animation
Thank you for reading & Happy trails,

and another bit of progress

Life is a busy business, but look - I'm still working on it. It's all i'm going to say about updating twice a year.
Yes! I still plan to finish this character one day.

I thought all I want to do is add the folds and wrinkles to the suite, but now that I put it side by side so many other things come up...

Comments are very welcome!
