Note: I haven't posted my tiger to Mocpages because I wanted to finish it completely first.
I finally finished my refurbishing of Mr. Kitty. There is a lot that I still want to change but it'll require me to completely change major areas, which is kind of scary.
Things that are changed:
-Tail: gradient stripe.
-Toes: changed the skeleton and added in nail slots.
-Stripes: stabilized weak stripes and cleaned transitions.
-Neck: had to redo the neck and shoulder stripes because of internal conflict.
-Nose: it's more accurate than before.
Everything else was internal restructuring. I wanted to make the face a bit fatter but I'm really scared of going in there and changing everything. There are 134 pieces in the face; it's not fun to deal with when something needs changing.
I tried to redo the front legs but couldn't find a suitable replacement. So they're staying.

dude this is an amazing sculpture. you have great talent in building with legos. i wanted to ask you if you could probably send me some instructions on how to build it. i promise i will only use the instructions to build one for myself, because i love tigers, and that's it. if you dont want to send it it's cool. kudos on your excellent job.

The five smiley heads beneath the main pic inform me that I have not commented on this yet. Well that's about to change! Incredible work sir. You've managed to capture the shape and color scheme flawlessly. Extremely well done!
The only critique I have is that I prefered the old tail for some reason, not sure why, anyway overall this is an amazing upgrade! Lovely work on the new claws and the great shaping on the head, you've done so well mate ;)
Aw! He's so cute! (And awesome looking, too!) You got the overall-look just right, but what I'm most impressed with is how you captured the posture so accurately. This is a really great model!

Unbelievable. You really force a lot of character out of these parts. I have never seen anything like it before. This is a delight to look at. I would love to see a cross section of this cat. I'm curious about his skeleton. Again, well done. Attack!

Wow! Mike this is incredible! I would pay for this (no seriously do you want to make me one?). Your Gyarados was amazing but this leaves it in the shadows. I want one! ~Thoy
Yep, this is quite an accurate tiger. I didn't notice much wrong in the original version, but I guess it was improved, quite a bit. The maw is a lot better now, I'm glad you perfected a creation I would be completely satisfied with.
One of the most amazing builds on mocpages. I like it almost as much as your Night Fury, and I am not a huge cat fan! The detail and piece usage are absolutely amazing! I have never seen anyone but you use this kind of building style and pull it off!
Dude, you have TRULY outdone yourself with this absolutely gorgeous work of ART. This gets my vote for best MOC on the 'Pages so far (although I may be a bit biased - I played the carillon on the quad at Clemson for awhile). Your eye, as well as your unique ability to execute with these techniques, is definitely a cut above. - Huss Q.
Absolutely incredible! I can't even say nice parts usage because I don't believe that statement does this justice. At first I was impressed, until I took a look at what pieces you used. This thing is HUGE! The fig arms as eye ridges is brilliant. The helmet as a nose? Wow. Great work.
Best Bionicle MOC ever. In fact, it's so far above what most Bionicle builders manage on this site I feel slightly dirty linking it to the franchise. Anyways, absolutely incredible. The most original MOC in years. 10/10
Fantastic work! I have been waiting a long time to see this on MOCpages. The improvements, although I would have never thought you would improve something that was initially so good, make the MOC look a lot better. You're a wiz at this!
Meow!!! I love with all my heart and have since I was a child the FELIDAE FAMILY my favorite always being the LION, then little kittens no mater the breed! But I am in awe of the TIGER, the LEOPARD and the PANTHERS! You captured the tiger in all his glory and majesty! I loved how you took us into the photo shoot and your explanation of how you kept on improving it! Your presentation of this MOC matches the MOC itself - WONDERFUL!!!
