Cernunnos Gets a Body

Some progress on Cernunnos again. He's got most of a body now. The bulk of the body is wool needle felted over the wrapped wire armature. I think he looks so much better now than he did as a bare armature! Because he will be wearing somewhat bulky clothing, I don't need his body to be super detailed. I just need all the parts to be in roughly the right place, to fill out the clothing in a believable fashion. There's still a lot of hard sculpting left to do (hands, antlers, ears, neck), but I felt like changing gears for a while and this is what I accomplished.

I also had Brian take a photo of me working on him, to show the scale. This is probably the biggest art doll I've ever made. Most of them tend to top out around 18" to 20" tall or so. If Cernunnos was standing up straight, he'd be over 30" tall.
