Paddington's Progress

I finished Paddington! I've finished the bear himself, that is. He still needs his coat and hat, and I have plans for more items from the stories to put into his suitcase (Scrapbook, jar of marmalade, picture of Aunt Lucy, centavos, etc.). I found his suitcase at Michael's.It might be a little big for him to carry, but I wanted to display him sitting on it most of the time. So far,I have made him a scrapbook, but it doesn't have anything in it yet. The Paddington Bears will be sort of an ongoing project for Brendan and me, but I have to set it aside for now, as I've got lots of bear orders to work on (and dolls too)! Yay!

Here is a picture of him before I used my airbrush. It shows the size comparison to my next largest bear, Figaro.

More poses to enjoy...

Wow!!! I've been following along quietly in the shadows...HA!! Paddington is just adorable Tami. Like Laura I can't wait to see him all dressed up in his finery. You just do such an amazing job putting your ideas into real life. I so admire your talents...can I come play in your studio for a day or so? :o)

He's positively gorgeous, Tami. I'm slack jawed. You've outdone yourself on this guy. Perfect!
