I have struggled with making cat's faces for over a year in my fiber work.
Cats have a flat face, essentially, with a subtle profile. I find sculpting them much trickier than making a creature with a definite muzzle and nose, like a rabbit or a mouse.
So, in my determination to build a better cat, I started to practice on four faces.
I really did start with a pretty flat surface. Upon that surface I built up the facial structure, bit by bit.
Fur was added to the face, small tufts at a time.

The Calico in the front
The Salt and Pepper Kitty looks like a fly has landed on his nose! He is very surprised about it.
Everyone is wide-eyed, except the Tabby... but I find this a frequent expression on all the cats I've known and loved.
I'm pretty pleased with the way they turned out.
I do have my favorites. Isn't that always the way it is with cats?
