Silly Sketches...pull toys are on the way!

I realized that it has been almost a year since I have made an animal pull toy! I love creating them, but they require lots of uninterrupted and focused sculpting time. So, I decided to dedicate the next few weeks to making 3 fun little critter carts. I have my work cut out for me, and I am excited to get rolling on them!

Here are the sketches that I will be working from. I usually do very VERY rough sketches for my dolls, but for the pull toys, I really need to plan them out and illustrate the animals in a more detailed, accurate way. And I am also trying to work on my illustration skills for a future project that is brewing in my brain.

A grinning kitty with a major sweet tooth...



A blissful bunny acrobat on a dotted ellie...



...and a stack of farm friends in fun colors.

Hi Carrie,

Love your future projects, and I will be so excited to see them come to fruition. Will you post them as tutorials, like I'm doing, or will they just appear? I'd love to see your process.

Hugs,
Meri

I have toyed with the idea of making something along these lines often. Sadly the work involved always makes me cringe lol. These new designs you have shown looking awesome i can't wait to see how you bring them to life.
