Brown bear called Pokie.
Realistic Style Bear
By Linda Hearn Critters Creations
Many hours and different techniques were used into creating this realistic character bear. Because of the process used, you see no seams. It gives a more natural look. I build my bears from real bear photos.
There is no pattern used to create his face and no two bears will be the same.
This Truly creates a unique and one of a kind bear.
A nice brown mohair fabric was used to create him.
Extensive facial detailing with firmly felted muzzle and nose
With Strands of mohair being rooted into his felted face. Needle sculpting, scissor sculpting and
hand shading added to give him a more realistic look.
The nose is not added on but part of the muzzle with the needle felting process. Sculpting, sealed, sanded and
shaded many times over to create a more realistic nose.
He has a bottom lid. Looking at real bear photos I have noticed some stick out the bottom lip.
It brings out so much character.
He has realistic glass eye. Open/closed eye lids. The bottom lid is fixed in place
where the top lid will move up and down. You can have him awake, sleepy or sleeping.
I like to believe he is alive and looking at you.
Acrylic claws are shaped, coloured and sealed.
The foot and paw pads are made from leather. They are hand coloured.
Some hand shading on the arms and legs.
Disc jointed at all four limbs plus a knee and ankle joint inside each leg giving him 8 joints total. His arms have armature and legs also a mechanical type of armature to help with posing. Instead of a neck joint there is a type of armature which runs from the head down the back like a spine.
He has been filled with a combination of polyester, pellets
and bbs for weight and stuffed fairly soft which allows for loads of movement.
You will receive a picture hang tag, a Certificate of Authenticity and his bee hive he plays with.
