Let it Snow...Man!

Finally got around to making this it has been a sketch on my desk for weeks. He is around 11" tall and 6-7" around. I like the way it turned out but I am always open for suggestions. It is the first time I really painted something, I was trying to make it look rustic. You don’t even have to use the living hinge part. What do you think?

hmm, hmm, clever living hinge design. That works really well. I assume the top and bottom ahlves of the snowman are glued together?

My favorite is the one with the living hinge. Who ever saw a snowman without eyes. :rofl:

Is that neckring double thickness? If it’s single, then the tabs on the skeleton and living hinges are quite shallow? (If that’s a trade secret, then don’t tell me. :slightly_smiling_face:)

Oh, and that’s a really cooooool design! My favorite is the living hinge. But the skeleton…design some leather or cloth panels that could be engraved with a snowflake pattern?

Amazing! Looks like wicker, I like that. Old-timey retro.

That is a great design right there. SImple at its core, but the the final product looks much more complex and lovely! It definitely has a retro vibe. Terrific! Is it hard to get the living hinge pieces stretched on the frame pieces?

No they fit really easily, just pinch them in and they come out pretty easy too. Need to do glue on their tips if sell to someone.

I think it looks awesome! I prefer it with the living hinge, think it gives it more character.
