Okay so I know I suck royal at cat posing. It's SO hard compared to dogz, when I know other people think it's the other way 'round.
Anyway, I really like manxes irl, and want to start my own little kitteh line. Once I start getting the hang of reading catz standards, I'm going to tabby the f*** out of them cause tabbies are so much fun X3
I know I can see some of Sean's foreleg, but I'm not sure on the others. I had a ton of jowl and chin ball movements, so I figured they were no good like how dog parts move.
Cierra Manxes are an AWESOME breedfile to start Catzing with! They're easy to hex and they're easy to pose. Raz's pose looks the best to me here, but for tabbies, you're going to have to make sure that his toes aren't striped. I learned that with Sahera, and I just ended up making her toes white. Sean and Cooper's back legs are a little close together, but Andromeda looks good. The only other thing I would point out is that yes...the mouth balls on these guys will kinda get stuck behind one another and those pictures tend not to place well in the PKC, if at all. Just make them meow or move around a bit, it never stays that way ^^ I'll be having my first round of litters soon with this breedfile. Baska just champed and I'm super excited hahaha
I was able to jump right in with cat showing, it's not too hard, really. I'm having more trouble getting poses from my dogz! I've also got some new manxes planned. A mink or two, some black and whites. Once I get in the swing of hexing I want to do some tabbies myself. Whoo. I know! Maybe we can combine our manx lines in the future
I'm one of the ones who finds posing dogz really hard XD
I agree with tzunami, Raz is the best. Andromeda and Copper(spam moment to see he's my favorite) have nice alignment as far as front legs and straightness go. Like you said you can see too much of Sean's front far leg. Sean and Copper's back legs are a bit too close together. I would say Andromeda's are too but if tzunami says they're fine I'd take her word for it since she has more experience with this file than I do.
As for the tabby toes, some of the older breedfiles have them messed up a bit in that they do have the toes/muzzle striped. There are a few others(I don't think this file is one of them though) that also have the leg stripes wrong, the paranioa Oci cat(one of my favorites) is one of those breeds. But that only matters if you're showing A-reg on PKC
Andromeda's pose is passable, is what I meant haha. Legs could be further apart, but it's not a bad pose. Her front legs are aligned nicely! The tailless manxes in this file just look different in pose. It's odd...
Of this set Jasper is the best with Lillian being a really close second. Going from tzunami's comments I'd say the others are passable, they hind legs could stand to be further apart but as long as the comp on PKC isn't sky high there shouldn't be a problem with them.
