Striving for Realism

This seems to be the right time of year for planning out my bear making for the next 12 months.  This year it is my intention to continue working towards a more realistic shape and incorporate more movement into my bears.  I am happy working with locline now, and encouraged by the range of movement this allows, but my patterns are still 'work in progress'.

I find myself torn between designing bears with more realistic features, or kinder, teddy faces.  Below is a photo of Icicle.  I have gone for the more realistic facial features with him.





I also intend to continue developing my teddies this year, as well.  I just can't resist those 'please love me' teddy bear eyes!

Happy New Year!
