As part of assembling the collection, I commissioned my friend and ace sculptor John Pickford to sculpt me a little winged cat (let's call him Friskers), who could represent a certain animal familiar to accompany Elric's companion Jhary a-Conel. Citadel's Jhary sculpt already had a very similar winged cat on his shoulder, representing Whiskers from the Elric books. But I foresaw the need for an independent winged cat, hence the Frisker sculpt.
I painted up my Friskers last night - here's the results:
|Friskers hunting through the grass!|
|Feline eyes watching carefully|
|Isn't he cute?!|
Just so you get a sense of how tiny Friskers is, here he is next to Jhary a-Conel and his cat-friend Whiskers:
|I know, I need to paint Jhary!|
Finally, some gratuitous shots of John's original sculpt. Isn't the face adorable?!
