Leafkicker gets some Personality
Leafkicker has a past. He began as a challenge from two friends to make a doll from a couple axes. (Not sure why I had axes laying around in my basement.) It's taken a while to figure him out. His trunk armature is made from 2x4s. The trunk surface is basket woven cloth. The arms are aluminum armature wire with very long tubes of fabric scrunched onto them. Leafkicker has had proportion problems. This is his third head and second set of hands. Enough already, I want to get on to sculpting the head and putting some hair on that head! I'm really enjoying the emerging "know it all" personality. I will force him to wash his feet before he goes out into public.
