I started what was going to be a hunting fairy riding on a squirrel, but now after finishing the squirrel I've decided that while I'm happy with the fairy, I really don't like the squirrel :| I hate the way I've done his fur (because i was to lazy to stick it on lock by lock all facing in the same direction!)

Not sure what she should be now - maybe I should loose the wings and turn her into Bodicea? Or maybe she should be a fairy perched on a branch hunting birds?

Any suggestions would be welcome :-D








Excuse the nudity, but I can't dress her until I know who shes going to be!

Oh I like him. I dont see anything wrong with the fur that maybe a little trimming wouldnt fix.

You know, Kie, I kind of like the squirrel too. I think you could trim up a couple places and he'll be perfect. I really like it a lot and I think you should stick with your initial plan. Besides, having the fur like it is, adds to the wild side of the entire piece. I think you should continue on with the hunter fairy idea. It's really, really good. :-) She has a fantastic face...I love the expression on it. Please, stay with this idea, Kie, it's wonderful!

Hugs,
Lori

Kie, I like her on the squirrel and I think they are both looking great. That's such a nice piece... really. How about putting on a kind of saddle made of leaves and natural things. Mabybe that's enough to cover the places you don't like.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions everyone.
I love the idea of the bathing fairy, but first I'll try trimming the fur and also that great saddle idea, but if neither work then Mr Squirrel may find himself choking on an acorn in the middle of the dark, dark woods.... Mmwwwhhhhhh! :d_wink:

HAHAHAHAHHAAAA Poor Mr. squirrel! Kie, that was the funniest thing I have read in a long time! hahahahahaaa He's really not as bad as you think. I think he is perfect. The saddle is a great idea. And, I still like her riding the squirrel. It's just meant to be that way.

Hugs,
Lori

Awww I think the squirrel is awesome! I really like it, and I can't understand why you aren't satisfied. It looks real! The fairy looks great too. Cool expression and pose!

I also think they are both great. I love the expression.

Maybe some scenery like tall grass or bushes can cover a section you don't like. Good luck.

That's such a wonderful piece, Kie. I'm glad she is still sitting on the squirrel, because you can see on her face how much she loves it. Great work!
