This is my first, large, completed project since starting dental school. I've obviously been neglecting my studies..
So I didn't actually use a tape measure to check since I can't seem to find it, but Haku is about 6 feet long stretched out completely (Edit: Ok, so he's probably more like a little over 5 feet, which is still the biggest thing I've ever made).
He is completely made out of yarn with wire support and his eyes are needle felted! I am so incredibly happy with how his eyes turned out. It took me a couple hours just to finish 2 eyes because I'm a noob like that..
though for the little push towards giving it another shot. I think the eyes and face are so important for a character to be recognizable so I wanted to get them as perfect as I could. I actually painted his eyes the first time around but wasn't too happy with how flat and "un-alive" they looked.. plus I couldn't get the color quite right (I'm no painter) but I found the perfect color in wool. His eyes are actually 3-D-ish
Anyway, I hope you guys like him!
