My newest little poppet, and definitely my most complicated and detailed so far.














His original sketch:



Info from my deviantART:

This fellow started his life as a little sketch I did several months ago. I loved the character design, but never got around to finishing him. Yesterday I started a new little poppet, and the inspiration hit me suddenly, I would finish Edward as a poppet! So ten hours later, here he is.

It is sometimes the case that I have to create backgrounds for the items I create, while other times the characters/items come with their own story that is none of my doing. Edward falls into the latter category.

Before I go any further I should mention he has nothing to do with the Edward from Twilight as I named him long before I read the books.

Edward is a member of the faery folk, land of origin undisclosed at this time. He is at least four hundred years old, though he often appears to look like a young boy. Like with other Fae, he is able to change his appearance at will. This particular form is how he appears most often, with his hair color changing as the seasons do. He is also seemingly part fox, bearing a pair of ears and a tail.

Edward, called Puck (name for a land spirit) by many, is equally as mischievous as he is serious. He tends to resist the normal faery pranks, though occasionally does like to steal a little milk from the neighbor's cows or braid the hair of sleeping children together. However most of his time is spent working in the circus where he is a jack of all trades.

I have a feeling he will reveal more soon. Wink

And now for the technical specs:

Edward stands about 12" high without his hat, and is completely hand sewn. All of his clothing was created from my own patterns and also sewn by hand. His ears and tail have pipe cleaners inside allowing them to be bend and molded. His face and socks are hand painted.

Thank you!  Yeah the hand sewing was...fun?  Is that the right word? ;P  My machine is broken, but I also like putting the extra detail in by hand.

Beautiful!
I have a lot of respect for people that can sketch something and then the final product actually looks like their sketch. Beautifully done! I also love all his background info  Smiley

Wow, that is an incredible amount of fine detail!  You have an incredible talent!  And hand sewn?  If it were me, I might have killed myself...

Thank you!  It's funny, I never particularly intended for him to be anything but a sketch, but he just wouldn't have that!  I tried to get as many of the details in as possible, as well as add some new ones.
