I've always been very interested in puppets, and have been set on making one for quite a while now. After a lot of research online, looking at various tips and tutorials, I finally got around to it.
His name is Tuck!
Tuck is actually my second attempt at puppet making. I had drawn up a ton of designs and bought new materials and was making excellent progress, but about 3/4 of the way through I got frustrated with the results I was getting, so I put the puppet on hold. I was trying too hard to achieve a certain look and shape, and just didn't know enough to get what I wanted. I took a break, used what I learned on the first attempt to start a new puppet (Tuck), and decided to come back to it later with fresh eyes. It isn't yet finished, but now that I have taken some time away from it, I have ideas for a new direction that I am pretty excited about.
Anyway, while working on that one, I took some pictures of my progress along the way:
