Here you can see the cat i made, took me a while and still doesnt really feel right to me. Im also definitely gonna put more practice into hair cause its still not how i want it and i spent hours on trying to get it right. Feedback appreciated!
I tried out lots of new stuff! like combining the two render engines for a very different look, and rigging using rigify! (i also used the tutorial np5 linked in the comments! Had to redo the hair but it was so worth it)
I thought the fur looked studio ghibli-esque after using a smooth f1 voronoi texture to make it a tortoise shell cat, so i spent all of yesterday trying to get a ghibli scene going which was a ton of fun!. The waterfall is animated and i might animate the trees and stuff too but for now im going to move on to the character creator course!
(the legs are still connected in a weird way because of the way i connected the mesh, couldnt smooth it out sadly)
