Have you ever heard of Władysław and Irena Starewicz (aka Ladislas and Irene Starevitch)?
Their stop-motion animated movies totally inspired me to make this doll! Seriously, puppets used in the animations (made by the Starevitches, of course) are pretty awesome and inspiring, go and check them out!
So here it is, my contest entry and also a little tribute to the great and almost forgotten animators ^^
This little guy was quite difficult to make! I used:
● Super Sculpey, acrylic paints and faux wool (for head, legs and hands)
● polar fleece and polyester filling (for belly, arms and thighs)
● plastic pipe (for sort of spine)
But I'm really satisfied with how he came out
Also, here you can see some Work-In-Progress photos: [link]
Hope you like it! ^^
