This is where it all began. Just doing some doodles. I tend to do this thing alot where I instantly come up with a narrative for a random character I would doodle. Let's just say, its completely different to what it developed into.
Here's the cat I drew shortly after... or did it start with this? I can't remember.
And then 2-3 months later, what?
And here's the various armature ideas I had for this, pain in the ass, hole. One of the main reasons I didn't buy a ball and socket armature is because of this blasted hole, aside from it being really expensive. As you can see, I didn't use any of these.
Here's the beginning armature
Detachable arms in case they need replacement
Added epoxy and rig points
Added epoxy to the ring
Got my latex, straightening out the arms and legs, filled in some latex into the grooves to smooth out the spiral a little bit, and ready to wrap.
Wrapped the arms and legs in sports wrap and ready to coat some more latex. Oh and sanded the epoxy ring.
Hey hey... Ted and I be chillin'... I can't seem to remember who took the pictures.
I'm fiddling around with my rubik's cube.
All latexed up and ready for the foam.
Foam rubber added very carefully and precisely, as you can clearly see.
Balsa wood block to start. Changed the head shape quite a bit.
Feet! Along with some standing full body shots. Ain't he adorable? Caroline and Angela in the background.
And now for something completely different!
Plasticene maquette for the head before I make the wood one.
Now comes in ears! Bonus hair not included.
And now for the wood head. Here's the basic shape.
