Are your loins properly braced? Then I shall proceed. =)
An order from my dear friend user, who asked for a doll inspired by Spartacus' character Agron.
If I first had thought of and sketched for this little guy as a simple doll, he is proof I can turn on a dime. =P
I had loads of fun playing with ways to make what is indeed simple abou him a bit more interesting.
For instance, his abs.
Usually I would just do a little sewing to have the stiches suggest the abs and pecs, but this time I used the tension on the stitches to shape the felt. Although none of my side photos came out decent, let me affirm that his tummy is pushed inward and that he does indeed have a proper 6-pack. =)
And his loincloth.
The most important bit about it: it's stuffed. Don't ask me why, I just felt a need to do it. >;P
Also, I threw in some ribbon with french knots and the bits of "cloth" hanging over the belt were also sepparate additions to make it a bit more real.
The red ribbon wrapped around his thigh is a detail S. told me was important, threfore it is there. =)
This little guy is getting a companion in Juse, so stay tuned!
