Operation Ornament Phase 1.5ish

A quick 'n dirty shot of my progress thus far on Operation Ornament. Four of these are intended for resale; the cougar under the eagle is staying with me. (He looks somewhat cooler in person, and I wasn't sure I could replicate the effect anyway.) I'm taking a break while I decide what, if anything, else needs to be done aside from adding a hanger and printing out a quickie tag. (The usual info: Hand-painted item, Not A Toy, Do Not Force Feed To Children Under 3, etc.) Yes, it seems a bit skewed: two raptors and two big kitties. I tried a few others, but they fought me incessantly, so I gave up on them for now. If/when these prove salable, I'll take another swipe at 'em.
I have to get these suckers done and off the workbench ASAP because, come Thanksgiving, I'm breaking open the Paperclay and shifting focus to my usual round of family ornaments. Armatures are mostly bent already, and I'm thinking of using drum blanks for a couple anyway, so hopefully I'm not starting too late on those.
Wish me luck, if you're so inclined...
