John Haresfoot by MyntKat John Haresfoot by MyntKat
This is John Haresfoot! He's one of the awesome characters of :iconjollyrotten: (Go check her stuff out! That's an order!)

She gave me permission to make a doll of this character :excited: and this is the outcome!

It took about 12 hours working time, I could have put more details in but since the character drawings are not extremely detailed, I thought this would match the character better. I'm not very happy with the hands, I really need some practice with sculpting hands!

The chair is actually my cell phone holder, just so you get a sense of scale! In the first two images he's on a book shelf since he's a librarian, thought that would fit well :D

So yeah, it was fun making him. I also made a WIP right here, so you can see how I made him :P (not that it's very interesting... meh)

Again, go check out :iconjollyrotten:! Her stuff is awesome! :D


Materials used:
stainless steel wire, aluminum foil, sculpey (polymer clay), acrylics, satin varnish, plush fabric, hair spray, black ribbon

Ach Mensch, ich hab ja noch gar ncihts dazu gesagt!

Irre das du das so schnell gemacht hast und das du es überhaupt gemacht hast! Vielen Dank.
Es scheint nur schwer zu sein seine großen Glubschaugen gut umzusetzen... jetzt stiert er so. ^^ Ich hab ja auch mal ne Puppe versucht, da war es genau so. XD

Find ich gut das du ihm "echte" Haare gemacht hast. ^^ Hihi, und nen kleinen Sessel hat er auch noch, wie süß.
Und er ist ja quasi Lebensgröße! XD

Außerdem finde ich das Making of sehr interessant. Ich geh jetzt und fav das auch! Außerdem denke ich das ich das hier mal in meinem nächsten Journal featuren werde.

Vielen Dank!

Freut mich, dass er dir gefällt :dance:

Ja, die Augen sind echt schwer umzusetzen... aber er sieht halt sehr erschreckt aus, das passt doch gut ;) Ich glaub ich hab die Augen einfach zu rund gemacht, etwas ovaler hätten sie vielleicht besser ausgesehen :|

Die Haare haben die meisten Probleme gemacht, ich hab immernoch Plüschfusseln mit Sekundenkleber an meinem Daumen hängen :giggle: Ich und Sekundenkleber vertragen sich einfach nicht gut...

Ja ich glaube man muss da irgendwie mit Augenlidern arbeiten, aber das ist ja nun mal echt fummelig. ^^

Oh ja, Sekundenkleber liebe ich auch... >__>
Fühlt sich fies an wenn man das so lange an den Fingern hat...

Ich sitz grad an nem feature journal, kannst du nachher sehen. ^^

Augenlider oder die Augen irgendwie weiter *in* den Schädel hinein arbeiten... aber dann passt es wieder nicht zu den Zeichnungen... gib es zu, du hast das mit voller Absicht zu schwer gemacht damit ihn keiner Nachbauen kann! :giggle:
