The smurf in my avatar is actually made from the Simple Series Pinhead pattern. I own most of the Project Puppet Patterns, and I get the most milage out of the Roly and Pinhead patterns. I have ~never~ been dissapointed in anything I ordered from PP. The end result is what you put into it. These just give you a good solid base to work up from. Also take a good look at the "adding features" tutorial on the site... The basic shapes are extremely versatile.
