Let's just say it's rough...early days. Found a polystyrene ball in a studio box, had scraps of wrapping paper and tape, so conjured up a crude version of the puppet... armless for now. I'm thinking of keeping the ball, but coating it black and fixing the mask to that. Got an idea of the hood shape and basic templates for transferring to material/cloth. It's funny how this crude mock up has given me a much better sense of how he can be as a puppet, sometimes you just have to make... and then paths open up.
