Sock Puppet

One of the projects to help students learn the creative process as well as Prismacolor use is to design a modified sock puppet. Last year I whipped out some quick roughs to show them examples of how to take the basic form for a hand puppet that would actually work. While I guess they fall more into the line of hand puppets I didn't want them to lose the basic underlying shape of the hand in their designs. This year I was bored watching them, and needed a break from my pointillism project, so I dug my sketch back up and completed my own.

What a great project idea!
I can actually feel the softness of this one!

Now that I have a nice home studio that is commercially zoned, I'm thinking of giving workshops. Not sure I can 'teach' much!

That is one of the coolest sock puppets I have ever seen. I like your rendering on this one too.
