I modelled & sculpted this in Blender, rendered it out of cycles with fur added. If you’re interested there is a speed art on my YT channel here http://youtu.be/oZMH0SzW9yA

Any feedback & CC welcome

i think the model looks good, but the result would looks more realistic, if you use hair-particles for the fur.

Thanks TobiasR, i will go back and have a play with the hair settings as suggested. I think you’re right
