The last two new pandas i had made, i had been fairly happy with , but still not 100% satisfied. So when I started on this guy i was determined that this time I would be.
At first it was going like a dream, the head was going well and my idea of using smaller eyes i felt really worked. THe head is usually the place where if I'm going to have problems with a bear it will be with the the head, but not in this case. Of course after the usual long amount of obsessing that goes with me and bear heads, it was done and it was time to move on to the body.
WIth the other two pandas, the body had been one of the main areas i had not been really happy with . At first i couldn't put my finger on it, but after googling images of pandas, it was clear. Pandas don't have all white bodys but black "stipes across the legs and arms.
Then of course, because I love to drive myself nuts and make things hard for my myself, i returned to my weird obsession of a panda with a blue and white singlet, this time knitting it.
But well the end result is, Moto, who well I'm really genuinely happy with. Which is such a nice feeling and makes all the agony and driving myself nuts worth it and only a distant memory.
What can I say , I'm a sucker for the feeling even if it comes at the cost of my sanity.
