Rendered in Carrara 8.5Pro with no postwork apart from sig.
Used the supplied poses and some minor tweaks to see if the pose dials worked.. so far so good
Textures need adjusting, bump maps and spec maps need to be added and adjusted to liking as well as trans maps, the eyes need adjusting as well, all part and parcel of using it in Carrara..

@Stezza - very cool to see how Big Kitty is working for you in Carrara! Thanks for sharing! I have an older version of Carrara but I am not very good with it:)

I think this could probably done with rendering a bit longer, Iray render.
Ohhhhh wonderful render tparo. That's the type of scene I saw my first snow leopard in. It was a photograph, IIRC, and seeing a leopard hanging out in a tree, and the coloring of the snow leopard, was so unique to me I fell in love with it.

Laurie's golden leopard texture is gorgeous, but I can't wait for her to add a snow leopard to the mix. ;)

Ok, tparo's image is now there, but I moved the time of it so that it shows up later than it was done, so folks don't miss it :)

Lovely, and lovely also, Tosca!
