Life-Sized HeiHei from Moana
The chicken lives!  That's right, my latest model is once again Moana's inadvertent travel buddy, HeiHei the chicken.  This time around, HeiHei stands 14" inches tall, almost double that of my previous model.  I'm not sure if that's truly "life-sized" or not, but looking at how big he appears in the movie...it's at least pretty close.  Between his size, complexity, and just taking the time to make and glue on all those dang feathers, HeiHei has finally unseated Banjo-Kazooie as the most difficult model I've made so far.  But I love how he turned out!  And, fittingly enough, he does still have some feathers made with "Ocean Blue" felt, just like the first one!

Also...Happy 4th of July.  Nothing says "America" like a Polynesian chicken, right? ;P

Figment from Journey Into Imagination
"Two tiny wings, eyes big and yellow.  Horns of a steer, but a lovable fellow!  From head to tail, he's royal purple pigment.  And there, voila!  You've got a Figment.  A Figment of Imagination!"

That's right!  My latest model is none other than the beloved Epcot mascot, Figment!  With his signature yellow sweater, he's all set to dream up all sorts of new things using his imagination!  Figment stands 15" tall, making him the tallest model I've ever made.  He was inspired by a Disney World trip I took recently, wherein I found the Figment merchandise to be somewhat lacking.  I decided I'd be much better off making my own Figment!  Although, it wasn't quite as effortless as the Dreamfinder makes it seem in his song.  He was quite the challenge to create, but I'm super pleased with the results!

And, like a true Imagineer, I even included a hidden Mickey! ;)

EDIT: Updated to have some higher quality pics!

Bill
Here's another more unusual model.  Made as a birthday gift for my brother, it's Bill!  He's a replica of a giant stuffed gorilla that my brother won at a carnival when he was a little kid.  Bill has managed to survive for years and years, and he's getting pretty old and dusty now, so I thought it would be fun to make a mini version of Bill!  That's the real Bill with his little doppelgänger down in the corner there.  A fun little model to make, and he was very well received!

Roast Porg
Behold, the strangest model I have ever made!  Hmmm, should I mark this one as containing mature content? Yes, that's right.  It's a roast Porg, just like the one Chewbacca was preparing to eat in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  Try not to be too alarmed.  This model was made as a gift to a coworker, who loved it.  I guess that's what matters. :P

For a less grotesque Porg model, see here: toodlesteam.deviantart.com/art…

Hei Hei
Hey, it's Hei Hei, everyone's favorite boat snack!  This little chicken was a ton of fun to make, thanks to all his multicolored feathers.  He stands about 8 inches tall.  And the best part of all is that the felt I used to make most of his tail feathers was called "Ocean Blue."  How appropriate!

UPDATE:  I've now made a new and improved, "life-sized" model of HeiHei!  Check it out here: www.deviantart.com/toodlesteam…

Hi there!  Unfortunately I do not have a pattern for Spyro, as back when I made it I did it all from scratch.  Mostly just examining pictures and screenshots of Spyro while drawing the pieces to try and get the details right.

Huh, I've never heard of spyrofoam, but it looks like a fantastic material? What exactly is it? (I'm having trouble even finding much information on google about it, which is unusual.)

Heh, "Spyrofoam" is actually just a pun on Styrofoam and Spyro the Dragon.  My wanting to make a model of Spyro is what led me to making models the way that I do, so they're named after him.  My models are made with Styrofoam primarily, and then covered with felt.

Waitwaitwait, it's actually JUST styrofoam? What on earth? What kind of black magic are you using?!?

Do you wrap them in felt afterwards or something? They look so fuzzy... And, and what tools do you use to carve the foam, to get it so precise? Oh my gosh, right now I am made of questions. I can't believe these are out of styrofoam.
