Early morning and early evening are the best times for rolling in the grass. Remy loves to lay on his back, close his eyes and sniff :-)
The current 2014: Year of the Fairy Tale assignment focuses on gesture and emotion and thus I found myself looking for a model, a 'mannekin'. I've looked off and on for quite a few yeard but never found one that I thought would work for me.
However, I found a thread in a forum - I cannot remember which one - that mentioned the highly articulated Spiderman toy circa 2003. Whoa, let me check it out.
I found one. It's 18 inches tall and posable:
Overall sixty-seven points of articulation; here a close up of the hand:
|The fingers move, too.|
So back to my fairy tale assignment; I sketched emotive scenes that so far have involved a queen, a princess, a prince and his brothers with the emphasis on gestures. However these figures were from my imagination. Some examples:
|Unlocking a door.|
|Delivering the news.|
|Princess and Prince.|
To refine the figures I'll have to involve my action figure buddy. Hm-m-m, Spiderman doubling for a princess... but you know, it could work :-)
