Meet Leo Pard

A figurine I received from the main animator for the movie Shrek. He is a leopard pronounced Leo Pard because someone was looking at the word leopard and mis-pronounced it, giving him the idea for a leopard with attitude. Leo Pard may show up in a movie one day.

How is this real? It is created from a 3D computer model then printed with a 3D printer. Very cool technology. I use this technology as a visualization and teaching tool at school.
