This is my shorter than expected tribute to the Son of Kong. The puppet broke on the first take. It will be repaired, but in the meantime this is all I have....

While you're repairing the model you might want to get a sharp scissors and cut fur vertically so you don't have so much of that layered look on the fur...that is a real problem. It sorta reminds me of a pinata... Sorry to sound mean, but that would improve the model a lot I think.
Best, stan

It's pretty good.

Sorry to hear the bad news about the puppet. I hope for the best.

I like the Hoyt S. Curti-like music playing.

Thanks Stanley and Mattosaurus. I have moved on to another project, but I will eventually get back to this puppet. I will take Stans advice and blend the fur in a little better. The music is by Philip Green who wrote a lot of tv and film music back in the 50's.

OK. Still great work.
