So listen, I'm very much a hetero male, but these dudes look amazing. At least from my artistic eye.

I think I modeled everything you're showing there right Laurie? Other than it looks like you've worked on the hair a bit on the black haired male. And that last image looks like you've added the sculpted body morphs by CGCubed.

Anyway, enough "horse play" here. Very nice texture map work on all of this.

Yep everything in those images is HW/modeled by you -except, yes, a little of the CGCubed Sculpted morph for Dusk, in the second one. The hair in the first one is all yours- I just tweaked the maps /Iray MAT some.

Actually, a LAMH preset for the big cat. Kind of needed for a snow leopard. They have a very heavy coat.
Tigers seem to as well, not to mention things like a lynx or bobcat. In fact, I kind of suspect that this is a case where one size does not fit all, since where the hair is longest is not necessarily the same.

I'd happily pay for a set of various presets for the big cat.

I see merits in both, many times in a render the eyes are the most important, they say so much. If you look at a lot of art as I do you notice many people make the eyes larger then life, small eyes may be more natural but the message they bring all but disappear all too quickly unless they are plastered to the front of the camera...Or so it seems... great stuff by the way...

Sorry... forgot to mention: the black panther and leopard are using my WIP leopard short preset, the cougar is using my WIP cougar preset.
