Passing Phases


Funny how the different phases of the moon affect our hormones and moods!
With the new moon comes inspiration and bright ideas and dreams, or in th4e waning phase, the energy settles us down into whatever has taken place.
The Half moon - we're either building excitement and energy, or decreasing our energy, and the full energy of the moon has people and animals doing all sorts of energetic things at times, especially in the summer months!
Then the moon starts to get tired and the energy wanes and calms again. Everything passes. It's another phase we all go through.

Boxtroll Snatcher!

Tried to make a Boxtroll Snatcher! If I had put the least stretch across the face instead of the greatest stretch, I may have achieved a longer more gaunt face. Instead I ended up with this grimacing one!
  Not to worry! It's still a humpback character. I used a t-shirt fabric to make it, cutting and dying thin strips for the lank hair.
  I made the had from denim, and painted it. The coat was a piece of heavy weight t-shirting. I constructed the boots from a thick fabric to make them stable, and covered them with Mod Podge and painted them, so he stands alone.

I used him as a demo at the workshop on Just heads, when talking about making a character.
