Body for Max

I decided to make the body first, before finishing the head. There are a lot of small cracks as I didn't bother to finish the surface, because it's going to be covered in black felt.

The head is held in place with a small peg that goes into a hole in the neck and another hole in the head.

I'm going to use pipe cleaner for the arms, so I made a hole through the body. The legs are made of wood and as you can see, he can stand even without feet in place, so after I have made the feet, his balance should be fine.

Maxi Max

This is my take on the head of the figure who represents Max in the photo story. I decided to try to make a larger version of that figure and started with the head. The measurements aren't quite right and the expression is different, but it should be close enough. Now it needs to dry and then it's sanding and making the eyeballs.

Here is a time lapse video of making the head.
