Today I made heads…lots of heads. These guys are the ones with potential. I tried some four piece heads (I’m not usually a fan of the seam up the middle of the face, but I am leaning that way at the moment.)
yes, he is ugly there is no denying it, and his head is a little baseball shaped for what I want , but the ear is cute. I seem to be adding ears to everything these days. He is the very very starting point to someone I have wanted to make for ages and ages. He will be left to percolate for a bit longer.
The guy I thought was a knight, is in fact a Viking . (Of course). He seems to have reverse mumps on one side doesn’t he? Also his mouth is not quite happy enough is it? It is too wide.There is something just generally not right about the face but that’s Ok as it was just the head I was working on. I know the weird side of the head is just my crappy rushed sewing so I might proceed and give this guy some limbs and play with some clothes…a little shield maybe?
And this little madam just popped up unbidden from a four piece practice. I’m going to nut this head out a bit more – especially that stuffed hair idea. She may of course turn out very very different in the end, but for the first time in a long time she popped in to my brain with her whole story.
May I introduce Elsie Cabbage.
(and she might just look like an unfinished head on a stick, but let me tell you – she means business!)
