My First Puppet: Brewster

    I'm going to apologize up front and warn you that this build will probably take me a very long time.
    I work on a chef's schedule so I have very little free time.

    That said, what free time I have I am planning to dedicate to this project.

    He's gonna be a biggun, but I never do things by halves (10ths, quarters, kicking and screaming hundredths, but not halves).

    His idea started out as just a random sketch I did on my lunch break he just kinda grew on me. so here are his current full size plans. If I get acess to a scanner any time soon I'll post the concept sketches.

    Interesting you should ask. I plan to make the hands removable (we'll see how that goes) so I can do both.

    So awesome, @SandPunk ! Great idea to tape over the balloon - I was using a balloon for awhile, but like a moron I was just carefully pinning foam over it. Unsurprisingly, that was not a successful endeavor. Ha! Thank you for sharing!!

    Thank you! When I was in theater (my original major before I became a chef) paper mache was my fall back for a lot of things.

    Working on the head. My foam is too thick to be honest, but once I attach my mouth plate it should pull his lips back in.

    if you still have trouble with the lips you can just cut the edges to the right angle

    THe foam is indeed thick enough for that.

    Alrightie! Some more progress has been made. Mouth plate and skull are almost complete. I need to sculpt a tongue and teeth.

    And here you can see my Fiance's MLP collection as I test his fit on my arm.

    The winter Holidays are killer at work, plus I got married and moved into a new house so Brewster had to be put on hold. January is kind of a dead month so I was able to break him back out and built his hands!
