I made this guy about a year ago, to take to conventions. He's Max from Steve Purcell's comic Sam & Max. He is lifesize, so about three feet tall not including ears, and he has a full plastic armature and a swiveling neck. The best place to see more photos of him is on my account on Telltale Games, so click here if you want to see.  Grin

The fabric used was actually a plush terrycloth because I couldn't get any lightweight fur. I molded the eyes and nose from Sculpey and glued in little loops of wire on the backs to make them into buttons. He would be able to stand on his own if it weren't for the weight of his head. I used large doll armature for his limbs and there's a piece of PVC pipe for his "spine". His feet are actually made from large loops of doll armature as well, and there's small armature in his fingers. My sewing machine decided to die not long after I started him so most of this was done by hand. My Dremel died while making him too so the plastics were mostly cut with PVC-cutting wires.

Clearly, Max is the Destroyer of Machines.  Cheesy

I love it!!!!!! Max!!! Shocked)

Well done. It's a great likeness, and he looks alive, even -- he looks so animated, just sitting there. Go poseable armature!

To craft and to solve.
