The Woollies

This is a project I worked on last year for a potential childrens book for Oxford University Press.
There would be a group of characters that used their knitting skills and imagination to help overcome obsticals and challenges.
I was given a brief for each character and asked to visualize them and make a model of 2 of them.

There were 4 Woollies all together:
Baby woollie
Sporty Woollie
Clever Woollie
and Creative/arty Woollie

heres what I came up with:

 We agreed that creative woollie looked too much like an old lady/ house wife, but the other 3 were greatly recieved.
So we decided to go ahead and make a model for Sporty and Clever Woollie.

I started with a polystyrene ball and wraped the wool round to get the ball of wool style effect.
Then using things like felt, buttons for eyes and sculpting their feet from sculpy I added little details.
