I started the afternoon with thinking about what my next hand sewn guy would be. I tried to draw a couple of sketches in the sketch book that Leann made.
|I think I would like to make the arms and legs have big buttons on them so that they can be interchangeable.|
Later, I was thinking about a couple of possible submissions for upcoming shows. I am not going to say which ones because I might end up not submitting anything after all...but I want to work on a few plaster cloth guys that have been waiting patiently.
|This is the guy with the long horns that I started papering, but then I found that one of his fingers was cracked at the bottom and needed to be strengthened. It was the second finger up from the bottom on the right.|
|Once I started working on that one finger I figured I'd like to even all of the fingers and thumbs out and then smooth out the arms.|
|Here is how he turned out so far.|
Later on I went back into Studio B to look at this guy a little more.
|Then I realized why I didn't like him as much as when I first started him...he doesn't have enough of a face. I wadded up a plastic bag that was on the table to try to give him a chin...something to work with, anyway.|
|It is hard to capture what exactly it is that I am seeing.|
|He's starting to get a little more of a personality...I'm not sure this is the end of adding to him, though.|
|The camera doesn't "see" what I see...odd lighting in that room with the skylight. Also, I think I will clean that stuff off of his eyes.|
|That's a bit better...|
|I like him more already...but I know he isn't done yet.|
