    My quest for the perfect replica led me to ANOTHER rebuild of the very first puppet i ever built. And here he is. He will be my last rebuild i think!

    Some areas i inproved from my last kermit were colour, eye focus, mouth shape and i made his body a bit rounder.
    Hope you like him :)

    Wow, as always, absolutely amazing. I can see why you would stop here, because this is about as close as you can get to the real thing!!!

    Thanks :)
    There were lots of little things that kept bugging me about each one.. The eyes were one of them! For a simple puppet he is soo frustrating :)

    Looks great! Well, except for that one little thing...just kidding! :p

    No, really, that's a good looking frog. You really captured his essence, I think!

    Also, one more thing. Mind if you share your pattern? I think I got the Henson stich, so I'm gonna try Kermit as a starter.

    Thanks for the compliments :)
    Sorry, im
    Not sharing this pattern. I have put a LOT of work into getting this far. As those who have seen my previous posts will tell you.
    I started out with the MR pattern if that helps as a starting block :)

    Alright, I understand your reaning I'll start with the MR patteren and move on from there. What color green are his body and collar? I'd say those are the same colors as the real one!

    Are the eyeballs the same size? Including pupils?

    Muppetlab Well-Known Member

    Yea the eyes are the same size as all my previous ones. The pupils are slightly different.

    Probably to most perfect replica I have seen. It is equal to Terry Angus' Kermit replica.
