After seeing Fantastic Beasts recently, I've shifted into full-on Harry Potter mode again. My favourite character is Snape, so when I decided to play around and tweak some of my usual doll patterns, he was the perfect subject.
I always flop back and forth over what style appeals to me the most; super chibified or stylized realism. So... I did what I love to do; refuse to make a decision and craft both styles instead, because clearly two Snapes are better than one!~
This is Snape version 1:
He's 13inches, made of suedecloth and various fabrics (whatever had the right feel and draping properties in my stash cupboard). Faux fur for the hair and hand-painted eyes..
Oh, and a basic armature in his arms to allow him to be gently posed..
Annndd.. Snape version 2:
Super chibi! He's 13.5 inches, made of suedecloth and a variety of fleece fabrics. Faux fur hair -- which made me have to completely rework my head pattern because the bigger the head, the shorter the pile of the fur appears. I also gave him oversized individual fingers to go with the oversized feet and head. His eyes are needle felted; I usually do a darker colour of their eyes around the outside, but being black it kind of voided that idea..
Sorry about the photos -- black on black on black is surprisingly difficult to photograph.
