This is one way of constructing an image. Instead of modeling the entire figure I have constructed it of parts. The arms are the hand/arm from THE BOOTH. As it had a skeleton I used it to pose the fingers of the left hand and then duplicated it and reposed the right hand fingers. The legs are legs without feet, as the shoes hide the feet. The head is an un-modeled sphere on a neck/shoulders.
I was reading a thread in a forum from www.Spiraloid.com: written by Bay Raitt, the man who led the team that created Gollem for Lord of the Rings. He queried at what point a puppet is finished. In 2-D, you only paint what you see. Three D modelers often take huge amounts of effort to create things like bodies which won't be seen, teeth inside closed mouths, etc. so I did this as an experiment.
