Yaw / Roll Faerie Joint

Sat, 26 Nov 2011

After the fun with Surly Jack I'm back on finishing my Faerie project. I think it will probably end up as a static model but with poseable features.

I've used the same poseable head joint as with previous projects but with a slight change. Instead of making the head so that it can nod and rotate, I'm making it so that it can rotate and tilt. Yaw and roll if you like. This is fairly straightforward to achieve, I just fit the joint side to side instead of front to back

After the usually struggle getting the hair design sorted I have a head I'm quite pleased with.

I've mounted the joint across the head and fixed it into place with the chin raised slightly.

The result is this rather coquettish tilt of the head.

Looking good so far, its going to look great on the top of our tree!
