Balloon Chit Chat / Valentines

As I have been making the Roses lately I then thought we should perhaps incorporate them into a design.

The Roses thread is here if you'd like to see how they evolved,
https://www.balloonchat.co.uk/balloon-chit-chat/roses-11791/

I started off making a guy design and changed it about a little, the first one he is top heavy and too chunky.
I prefer the jacket on the taller one but his arms are too short so will make a little longer next time  ;D

This was my variation on the design.
I then made a smaller Poodle and posted the pictures on a separate thread if you'd like to take a look.

I made the Poodles above after making the larger Poodle for our first challenge for 2021 on the forum.
The original design was from Masayoshi Matsumoto, all his details are posted on the challenge thread here,

The ears on this one are 160's so not so bold, still did not really look right to me
so then changed the head design completely for version two.

Its been very dark lately and getting nice pictures has been a bit of a challenge.

I have just made a Poodle for the Challenge thread Danielle and I do and will post that later
but decided to try a simpler design, not to keen on the way it looks at the moment.
Definitely a works in progress, he he.

I liked the body and feet etc, it was the head structure that I struggled with.

Last picture from how the Rose evolved..........................for the moment.
I'm rather into the different looks for the Rose at the moment and will definitely be making some more soon.

I then played with different dimensions for the underside of the Rose to see what was pleasing to my eye.

So we come to the favourite Roses I made from my two days of playing with latex.
I ended up with three Roses that I liked from 260 balloons, one with 7 petals for
the real world and then a 12 petal and the 17 petal Rose.

From 160 it was just a 3 petal wrap over that I went with, will post all my favourites.

The Red is a 7 petal and the Purple is 17 petals

I then added a fuller nose to the design.

These Roses are made from 160's, the stem looks a little too big for the actual Rose though.....
or perhaps its just me thinking this?

Had an idea, perhaps I just need to make the leaves a little smaller.... ;D

With this heart I always see a face design within, so made this from the design.

I have been having a tidy up of my balloon photo collection and taking a look at some
designs we would like to have a go at for the challenge thread for this year.

We are back to our old friend, Masayoshi Matsumoto for the Poodle design,
his Instagram page is, https://www.instagram.com/isopresso_balloon/
and on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/masayoshi.matsumoto.5

I sent the Poodle to Danielle this afternoon and we both agreed we liked the design and would like to attempt to re-create it  ;D

This is the thread to look at the challenge for 2020, https://www.balloonchat.co.uk/balloon-chit-chat/challenge-2020/

This is the thread to look at the challenge for 2019, https://balloonchat.co.uk/balloon-chit-chat/challenge/
