Needle Felted Bigfoot

Run Red Run Needle Felted Bigfoot Untold Tales of Bigfoot feltieVince Dorse, an illustrator friend of mine, who has done some designs for Run Red Run before, got together with me to create a feltie of the Bigfoot character from his award-winning comic, Untold Tales of Bigfoot (it won a Reuben!). This week is the one-year anniversary of the comic’s debut, so he wanted to celebrate by commissioning this feltie.  Untold Tales of Bigfoot has a great story, fantastic art, and it’s an all-ages comic, so it’s safe for the kids to read! Read it from the beginning here!

The Bigfoot sculpture stands at an impressive 21 inches tall –my biggest feltie so far!– and he has a strong armature to pose him and help him stand.  I used merino wool for his fur and Felt Alive Flesh Tones from needlefeltingsupplies.com for his skin.
I had a blast sculpting bigfoot and working with Vince to get Bigfoot’s 3D version looking like his 2D design!  Make sure you go over to the gallery to see the shots of Bigfoot in the wild!

    WOW! 21″!!! That is huge! Fantastic, so cute!

    (p.s. – this is the artist formerly known as FeltedChicken!!)

      Thanks, ASC! It was definitely a challenge fitting him on the felting pad.
      And I totally remembered you, both the former FeltedChicken and the brand new Always Sugar Coated!

    Just came over here from UTOB to say that you did an amazing job on Vince’s Bigfoot! Superb! :O)

    Before I hit my one year anniversary I will commission you to make several of my Wacky Monkeys.

      Thanks, Joseph! I’m glad that you liked the Bigfoot! I checked out your comic and it would be so much fun to felt those Wacky Monkeys! I love the facial expressions on all your characters. I’m going to be busy reading through your comic now! Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment.
