Stout: Day 2

Hi! So trying to work and do this art thing, starting slow so as not to hate my life. I finished the armature and foam for the Stout Muscle Man this week.

It's a good thing his is not a stop-motion puppet. This foam is wonderful, but when it gets too thick it becomes hard to pose the puppet. The good news is, when muscle gets too thick, it becomes hard to pose the person, so I'm pretending it was intentional. And because he doesn't have to move very much, it all works out.

Next step is going to be his hands and skin. His skin is probably going to be the most difficult I have done yet, because his chest, arms and legs are mostly bare. I have a battle plan though, so keep your eye out for progress.
