Here is a little challenge. A lion. I was playing with a new Boxer Dog design and trying a lot of variations as one does, and ended up with a lion. So does anyone fancy having a go at duplicating it or making a variation and improving it. I have put a couple of challenges on before but there has not been much response so if you don't want to do this challenge and have a particular reason I would be interested to know the reason. i.e. is it too easy or too hard or too boring?

Oh and the nose is purple because I wasnt being too bothered about the colours as it was the construction that I was looking at. The body is a triangle. I didnt take a picture of the side view unfortunately and have given it away now. It is wide at the front and a point at the back.

Oh just realised no one has responded to you Thelma. I can't speak for anyone else but for me at the moment time is a huge issue ... I simply don't have enough of it! I would love to have a go but it won't be until next week at the earliest and even then I may not be able to.

ok
will have a go tonight. I was wondering whether or not to do another challenge as there is a lack of participation in them so I am pleased you are having a go.

I have a confession. I made the lion and thought "That would be a nice one for the challenge because it looks good and it was easy to make" So I posted it on here and then forgot how I had made it. The fact is that when I made it, It seemed simple. But because I didnt take a side view picture of it I found it was not simple to work out again. I have only had this problem once before. I made a Dumbo, It turned out lovely first attempt. So I took a photo thinking that was all I needed to remind me how to make it and then when I came back to it I was I ended up pulling my hair out in frustration. I just remembered thinking "well that was sooo simple" when I made it originally. Oh well. I am sitting here with a pile of rejects. Here is my closest rendition. I got fed up so just drew the eyes on instead of adding some in and I don't want to do another. Grrrrrrr.

Hey Thelma!

I'm going to give this a try tomorrow - yes, it doesn't look too easy (for me, anyway!), but unless I push myself and try then I'm not going to get better, so.... I'll put my photos up tomorrow evening however it turns out, and hopefully if it's not too good I'll be lucky enough to get tips and feedback.

I, for one, would be definitely be up for your challenges - please don't stop, I'll participate!

Cheers

--Neil

I will do more challenges if enough people participate. So lets put the figure at 6 people having a genuine attempt at this challenge. Enjoy the challenge.

Hi Thelma

err - well, I did promise, so here it is, a somewhat pathetic attempt so feel free to laugh! My wife thinks it looks like a demented basset hound with jaundice, but hey - I gave it a try!

I'll keep trying with it, but it's obviously no where near as good as yours, so I don't think you've got much to worry about! :oops:

Best regards

--Neil
