Skull Kid WIP 1



You'll never see Skull Kid this well-behaved again..

I've been working on this guy for a few weeks now but he only started coming together this weekend (while listening to lectures followed by the 25th anniversary orchestrated LoZ music on repeat) :) I even stayed up until 8 AM on Saturday morning because I was so excited that I was actually getting to put his pieces together :D THE SHOES: I had no idea how to do his shoes for the longest time. Definitely one of the most challenging things for me is simplifying and designing shapes that will work while still keeping the stitch-work relatively neat and clean looking. And of course, I always have issues with proportion. I had to re-make his head because it was originally too small.. -_- My brother suggested making the body of characters before the head since this seems to be a recurring problem.. but it's habit. I just like starting at the head. Also, he is wired all the way out to his fingertips. I hate making fingers.

It's about time I tried my hand at making a humanoid character and I'm quite satisfied with how it's going so far. I chose to make Skull Kid first because I'm not ready to make faces yet. Er.. human faces I mean. Though I cannot wait to start working on his mask! My goal in life is to make several of the LoZ characters because it is ONLY the greatest game series of all time. :iconlove:
