There comes a point in every project where things get weird. It’s okay, it (usually) works out. But this that point in #The100DayProject. Or at least one of those points.
Day seventeen of #100DragonDays, and I didn’t feel like lugging the giant armature out to the kitchen table so I’m just working on the head.
It was time to put in enough support to hold the top and bottom jaw inserts in place, and take the “test skull” paper off. And boy, does that critter look goofy right now. Just remember, this is only the parts of the jaws inside the teeth. It’ll have the teeth, a little more gum, and only then the outside of the head. So at this point I have to trust that all my planning is correct and that it’ll come out right.
But boy, it’s hard to tell right now.
This happens in sewing projects too. Teddy Fox went through the “Crazy Llama Face” stage.
Despite appearances, he came together pretty well. Here he is a little further along. (I don’t know where the picture I had of him with teeth and tongue went, but he looked even better than this.)
Anyway, I’m going to dub this the Angry Duck Face stage. Hopefully it won’t last long.
