Day 7: Crow
One of my final entries. Kind of simple, but I love the way Emberley's "KAW" looks.
A good, middle-of-the-pack entry. A lot of personality with the puppetry, I think.
This was the very first puppet I made, once I had the idea to make Emberley puppets. (I was inspired by a tiger I had put together for this year's advent calendar, before i had a theme.) I think it's really charming, and really set up the idea of trying to put in a little extra: the wiggle, the eye tracking, etc. A few puppets later I must have changed how I figured the stroke width for the deconstructed mode, the "D" forms are pleasingly chunky here.
Day 10: Crab
Not sure if I did this one before or after I visited Baltimore! Like the Pelican, I like the personality this one carries.
