Oh man I'm bad at making collages in GIMP. I also only have pics taken at the con, so they're not too good, but here are some poses and detail shots of Haku, who was raffled off this weekend at AAC and gone on to a good new home.
Haku is needle felted over a wire armature and is gently poseable. His outer wool is a blend of merino and angora. His mane is frayed yarn. His head and feet are all resin casts of original sculpts, which were then hand-painted in acrylics and sealed with a matte varnish. The horns are apoxie sculpt and wire. His whiskers are wire and plastic and "float" around him.
A note: those of who you've met me in person may be wondering what happened to Big Haku. A few years ago, I made a gigantic (roughly 5 feet long), fully needle-felted Haku who I bring to conventions. I've never put up pics because
I always feel like he's not 100% finished...there's always some detail or other I need to touch up first. Unfortunately, he was damaged and needs serious repairs before I can finally photograph him, but I wanted to do Small Haku first. I started this Haku project with the intent of a smaller, more reproducible, sturdier version.
Materials: Wire, multiple wool blends, felt, yarn, alumilite resin, acrylic paint, matte varnish, apoxie sculpt, [super sculpey and silicone, for the mold].
