Alfie has a 7" body with a 3" tail, the size of a real 4 week old kitten.
I have been experimenting with the idea of a full body armature for several years. Each time I thought I had found a solution I was disappointed with the feel. I have been trying to find a way that a character could be posed in many ways, look natural, and still feel soft without being floppy. I think I have found this with the creation of Alfie, my first fully articulated kitten. Alfie has a strong, flexible backbone with separate, softer armatures in each of his legs. His neck has both a traditional joint and flexible armature.
