    Default Bulino snow leopards.

    I am keen for any input on this couple of snow leopards engraved onto this 416 stainless knife bolster.

    Does it feel finished to you? Is there anything I could improve on?

    I have this knife for two more days then I have to send it back.

    Constructive criticism is always welcome.

    They look really nice Danae. I use stipple shading to smooth and blend the line shading somewhat which gives a bit more of a fur look. However, that means quite a few more hours of work and not really necessary here. You should have a happy customer!

    anatomically, the origin of the whiskers on the upper cat are too closely clustered in a bunch. those rows of black dots on a cat's muzzle are where the hair follicles are. the lower one is pretty good, but the upper one bears a resemblance to Adolphe Menjou... ;-)
