Part III - Anniversary WIP

Well, this was a busy weekend but good progress was made.  I thought I would catch you up on the designing process.

Here is an engagement photo of the happy couple that I used to set in my mind the facial details for my puppet caricatures:
Now, I'm not that good at capturing details yet but here are the ideas I had.  Doesn't Mike remind you of Waldo in "Where's Waldo"?
So, I made a simple drawing to simulate the face and here is the puppet face in the early stages:
Now, Chris was the challenge but here she is in early stages:

There you go ....  Of course, they will look much better with hair and costumes but we are on the way.  I also painted and sealed the handle rods and attached them to the heads.

So stay tuned for more updates!!


  1. Hi Carlin, just dropping by to check on these guys. What no body yet? Looking forward to those updates.

  2. Hi, Grace ~~
    Just updated today!! Had to keep details under wraps due to the secrecy for my sister's surprise anniversary.
    Enjoy ... I have more posting to do for a later project I also completed for my mother's 85th birthday gift.
    So, I have been busy even though I was sworn to secrecy!!
