Since doing the Drop Kick Puppet I have come up with the idea of taking a photo of each puppet at the end of a full day of work and posting it. This allows everybody to see my process and progress, and gets me in a better posting habit. Plus a better documentation habit. So good habits all round.
The next puppet I am working on is from this label:

Ain't he cute? And such a troublesome little guy to bring into the third dimension. After a full day's designing and redesigning, this is what I have got so far:
You'll note that I have opened his eyes. Since he's going to be in multiple poses, I thought it would be more versatile if his eyes were open. In any shots where I want his eyes closed, I can make little paper eyelids, no problem.
