I have 3 cats lounge around my work desk so cat fur get into wax while I sculpt. Cat fur makes everything better especially food. Appreciate the kind words, but I don't have talent; I just have patience.

It is easy to have patience. My cats break my sculpts all the time. It gets better every time it happens. So you can visit a local humane society and adopt a cat or two if you want patience.

I have a cat, but she just sleeps on my lap the entire time I work, so she's not the best trainer for patience. xD And I can't get another because my dad really hates animals... ;n;

It is better to have more than one cat. I see you have a very nice kitty.  You dad hates animals? I bet he loves to eat them.

A bottle of brandy in his hand would make this complete. And paint, of course. But I'm confident you'll handle this

Ohh my, yes!!! :omfg: I like the realism on those faces you made!!! :iconloveloveplz: 

I'm currently working on a BJD doll myself, only I'm using polymer clay, and it's my very first one :giggle: so you can imagine that the term "doll" is definitely not reflective of its beauty!!! :ashamed:

Haha Thanks. Oh make BJD? What scale s it? Are you a member of the Joint?
I sculpted with polymer clay a lot before I switched to wax.
