This is one of the two I’ve been excited about posting, not because I think it’s particularly awesome (that comes next week!) but because I’m pleased with how it turned out. I spent hours and hours doing trial and error to get this base sorted for the finalised, bits-added-to-it-to-make-a-specific-character project I’ll detail later in the week (it’s being used as a present that won’t get passed on in time and I’m not sure if the recipient reads my blog, so split post it is lol). I’m sure it’ll get used in a few of my projects in the future too, since I’ve already created a second character using it and have plans for a few more!
Anyway, for now, here’s how to make the base. Pattern and lotsa how to photos after the jump.
