Balloon Chit Chat / Parrot
« Last post by Graham Lee on October 23, 2020, 04:26:49 PM »
I saw a Parrot design by Masayoshi Matsumoto, first picture. I thought it was very nice and I would have a go.
This is how my version came out, I think I added an extra body bubble as he is quite chunky.

Balloon Chit Chat / Fennec Fox
« Last post by Graham Lee on October 17, 2020, 01:52:01 PM »
On one of my Facebook posts where I posted a Fox someone said they had to make a Fennec Fox.
As I'd never heard of it I had to Google and this is it.

I tried some double stuffing on first picture but it did not really look right.
There was a lot of double stuffing trying to get colour tones.

Then went for a simpler version ..................
I'm sure we will never have to make again but thought I'd post my couple of efforts.

I got side tracked with using a round for the top of the head and tried a Geo blossom instead.
On the first picture the Black around the outside was a 260 and to bold so went for a 160
on the second picture and added some extra White at top of the head as well.
Plus changed the look of the mouth, still needs working on but onto other things at the moment.
Might come back and try again later in the week.

Balloon Chit Chat / Re: Another large sculpture (Cow)

This just came up on Facebook saying it was 6 years ago, we made the Cow for the advert back in 2011.
From memory it was used in two separate adverts I think. The link above does not work as the advert was taken down.
I have just found this one, the cow is at 40 seconds and is used for U for Udders.

So we took away the white around the mouth and made the 260 at top of head narrower and added a 160 right at the top as well.

Still has work to do and my next idea is to use a White round for the top section of the head.

Balloon Chit Chat / Scream
« Last post by Graham Lee on October 16, 2020, 12:13:02 PM »
Someone who will remain nameless  ;D ;D gave me a challenge to make Scream.
Here are a few variations and changing him slightly as we went.

The eyes/nose section were not to great in first picture.
Second picture eyes/nose section a little better.
Added extra white to forehead and around mouth in picture three but then
not enough black showing at top of head on picture three.

Picture two was my favourite at the moment.
