My new friend

    Hi all!
    I apologise if this is not the way this should be done but I am very new to forums AND puppet building.
    I have been working on a glorified sock puppet project this week and am quite pleased with the results so far. My new friend isn't finished yet - need to work out how to make wings and a tail! But as I said I am quite pleased so far and wanted to share him with like-minded people.
    I have really learned a lot from making him and hope to apply what I have learned to my next one for a better quality build.
    His name is Zazz. Unless he is naughty in which case it is Zazzle! (all parents do the full name thing when they tell you off, right?)[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Awesome! Keep up the good work bro! He sort of reminds me of an imp; mischievous, laughing at some joke that only he knows about.

    I like him! His ears give him a distinct silhouette.

    They really do. I am hoping to build his wings this weekend.

    Pretty slow to be honest. I hit a standstill with the wings. He now spends most of his time hanging out with my 10 year old daughter. They're both happy. I actually built a second puppet at Halloween last year, just haven't gotten round to posting any pics. I will at some point. Started a new puppet today and so will post pics when I get to it. Hoping to do lots more puppet building after this month as I am nearly at the end of my degree now and will start to have more time.
