I've been spending a bit of time trying to design a bear that is more realistic than my usual bears. I have been picking up and putting down this prototype brown bear for the past couple of months. He has 6 joints including a double-neck joint and wire in each leg for additional posability. His glass eyes have come from a taxidermist. I tried a different foot design this time, but think I prefer my usual foot pattern. He has a hand moulded nose and claws. I can see several aspects that I might tweak in my next attempt to improve this design. Poor chap hasn't a name at present!
