    Really Nice Jarrod!

    I am a big fan of your work. It is great to see you trying new things. I just did my first exposed foam puppet as well. Your design senibility is what I like so much.

    In my experience, I have met many really good builders. However there are a few things that can set them a part from each other. One of these things is what I call "design sense". The choice of the right colours, fabric and eyes can actually make or break a good puppet. No matter how well it is built.

    Your colour combinations are really well designed and matched. The touch of purple/blue skin shading and bloches on his muzzle is a super detail. Did you airbrush it, use fabric marker or something else?

    Did you use sheet foam? If you didn't then you must have taken a good amount of time to sand and smooth out the foam.

    Like I said, "NICE work!"

    I love your original puppets!!!

    I immediately heard a name in my head when I looked at the pictures...

    Milton Monster!!

    Whaddya think?

    Best of luck on another great auction, I wish I had the funds to bid!

  5. Being on the Gold Coast too, I was just wondering if you get your Antron Fleece from Spotlight or some other place?
    And if they call it Antron fleece.

    oh and great puppet as always.
    Cheers man.

    That's really good man. I would really like to learn how to do those kind of puppets. Could you teach me how?

    It is a good name.

    But he already made a "Norb" (the Numbat is 4th from the bottom). He might not want another one.

    Hi Keeermit,

    Great puppet! I like the use the uncovered foam, I also like the added texture to the foam.
    He looks a little confuse how about Woble or Cerano.

    hey all thanks for your input as always. So far i think milton or cerano.... not sure with it yet though :) hey blink I used sheet foam and dyed it blue then applied purple dye with a brush for the detail. I order all my Antron in from Kathy at GA Stage PracticeCactus. Its actually nice working with exposed foam - adds another texture, i like it alot actually, i think i will experiment with it a bit more. cheers all and keep the ideas flowing!

    I don't mean to rain on anyone's parade, but there was a Milton the Monster cartoon show in the 60's.

    Of course, maybe it's time for another one. After all, there are a few people in the world who have the same names.

    Finster? Wilby? Shackles? Lyndon? Fredrickson? Milroy?

    Name or not, this is another beautiful design. There's no other way to say it Jarrod, you really know what you're doing. Great job!
