Me experimenting with joints again. Yay, moving parts!
Critiques on because...erm... I dunno. Just because
I'm aware there are many things that are off in this one. Beadwork is like that - you fix several old mistakes and then make several new ones
A plantlike something. Has a flower on its tail.
Around 18 cm (7 inches) high and 27 cm (10.6inches) long, but that depends on the pose.
Joints - 2 in legs, 2 in hands, 1 in the middle of the body. Fingers have wires inside, so he can hold light things. Tail has a wire inside too.
Because I wanted to experiment with this type of joints.
Well... What can I say. Better than using a big glass bead, but still... Beadwork is fairly flexible - doesn't hold poses as good as plastic/porcelain would. So note to self - next time use lighter filling. As light as possible. Seed beads are heavy enough by themselves. And preferably one solid shape - not separate beads. Because otherwise parts bend and twist and act like fabric. And that takes a while to fix. >_>
But it stands well and doesn't try to fall from any incautious move. That's a progress.
