...but apparently it wants to be more of a guy...so he's a robot-guy for sure now.
I was originally working on this guy towards a specific goal but now that he has shown me more of who he is (vs a robot) I think I may end up keeping him and trying to make something else for the goal instead.
Here is a look at how he changed today.
|Today I added the beads to the antennae and the stitching at the base of them.|
|I added the connection between his head and body -- a strip of flat ribbon-like yarn with seed beads on top.|
|Then he got a nose.|
|Then he got ears (I tried several colors but these dark blue ones were the first I tried and were the ones he wanted).|
|Then came the sleeves/arms.|
|I was going to make two separate legs but it turned out one (cut in half) was fine for both.|
|And here is how he looked at the end of the daylong session.|
|At this point I was pretty much aware that I will most likely keep this guy for myself (and my collection).|
|Yep -- those legs are a good length.|
|And here he is with the other small spikey guy I am still working on...they seem to get along.|
In a her comment on Facebook on a photo of this guy's new look (turning from a robot to a guy) Juana said, "He's super cute, but he does look more organic than robotic! Maybe he's like Pinnochio, and now he's a 'real' guy." Yeah, may-be...and also maybe that is why he has static on the screen of his monitor (body).
