Happy May!

This month’s midi tier pattern is Flit the hummingbird from Pocahontas.

This little guy is so cute, but he is also quite dainty in areas, so I did have to contemplate how this character is going to work especially when it came to the wings. The Wings turned out to be a tricky part of this pattern because I was being a stickler for details. In the end I gave in to simplifying the wing design and I am still happy with the outcome.

The hardest part surprisingly was the mouth, albeit simple my brain just couldn’t process what I needed to do (I blame sleep deprivation due to the twins having tonsilitis and an ear infection). I remade this part 7 times and when I finally got it right, the sequence I needed was so simple. This wasted a lot of precious time, but at least I got there in the end.

When it comes to my projects I do like to include as much detail and realism as possible to the original character. However, the hardest part of achieving that goal is always the face. For me, facial features and expressions are the hardest things to recreate. This could be due to the small surface area which does not allow for a lot a leeway. Luckily, Flit’s eyes are big enough that it is not too fiddly and hard to work with. I think I managed to capture his expression well.

Flit measures approximately 7 inches / 18cm long with an arm span of 8 inches / 20cm.
