The wolf isn’t a wolf anymore


Hey hey hey … i finished it ! :D

I decided the face looks best without ears, and so it is now : Drucilla !

If you missed the post about her, you find it HERE


I was so concentrating when i assembled her, i totally forgot to take pictures of the torture.
First the arms were to high – again ….. and i moved them about 1 cm lower.

Fitting the legs at about the same side on both sides …. with this fluff of hair ….
it was nearly impossible.

So i took an about spot on both sides, took the middle of them, and placed the legs, still open. Stuffed the body and had a good look … and it wasn’t to bad, just about 5mm higher i had to go. So i removed them, set the new spot, cut the hair, sewed the legs closed and mounted them :D

Stuffing with sheep wool in body and limbs was a first for me and i am not so sure if i like it.

In the end, i must say, such fluffy long hair are not easy to work with, I DO like the look of long fluffy fur.
I do like felted faces, i think even more then scissor sculpted ones.
I do like the creatures to be fantasy like.

All in all i am quite happy with the outcome of Drucilla and after a short break with thinking about what i want to do next, i will produce something new soon …. so stay tuned :)
