The Eagle Owl

This majestic fellow took me over a week of muddling, puddling dabbling and I almost gave up.
 The eyes were too big :

Or his head as too small
His body was waaaay tooo long :
Or was his head too small . . . .

Anyway, after more then a week I was happy with him, I love his pose !

 And for comparison, I made another Barn Owl.
You can see the ( poor) stuffed one and the not quite finished one.
The Eagle Owl is huuuuuuuge !

When do little boys cry. . .

Reading Bambi. . . . . .

I wanted to make another doll, a girl doll, but since I haven't made a doll this size in a while I didn't notice I was out of joints.
Ordered them.
While I'm waiting for the joints I can start with an Eagle Owl then, mmmmm out of big eyes.
Ordered them.
Oh yes, it's Monday. . . . . . .

p.s. The boy is in my Etsy shop in a couple of hours :-)

Back to the beginning. . . .

I started making dolls in 2009, these are the first dolls I made.
I tried to put the pics in a chronological order but it won't let me do it :-(
The first two dolls are the first dolls I made and the rest is completely random.
Maybe you can guess if there's progress ?

This was just a selection from the collection and I'm working on this very sad boy now :
Well, I thought you would like to see some of the children I've made :-)
Helen XXX  p.s. I have no idea why the pics are not in a nice row :-(
