Okay, so it's really just a glorified amigurumi, but I can dream can't I?  Haha!  I made this guy for Ludi in the art doll swap.  He has sculpey hands and feet, a cross-stitched rose on his back, and jointed arms and legs.  All new techniques for me.  Smiley

Beautiful piece; the stitching/form look flawless to my eyes, and the rose on its back adds a nice flair to the overall design.

That's really cool how you used the clay for the hands and feets. I loved the way the cross-stitched rose came out on his back.

Thanks everyone! I was really trying to take my amigurumi skills to the next level.  The cross stitching was the hardest part. Then I was pretty annoyed when I realized that the design wasn't centered.  Still, it was a good learning piece.
