Here are the prototypes for the Ratchet and Clank hats in progress:
The ears for Ratchet, on the left, haven’t been attached yet, and I don’t know that I’ll get that far because A) they’re a bit too big, B) the color for the stripes on his ears aren’t right, and C) I’m not happy with the way the little peak in the center of the hat turned out. Ratchet wears an aviator hat, and it would probably look better if I made a proper aviator hat, but I wanted to add Ratchet’s eyebrows in the bit of yellow yarn in the bottom center… As for the stripes on the ears, I purchased a rust colored yarn, which I think is much closer to the actual color of his stripes.
As for Clank, I’m not really sure what to do… The problem is that Ratchet’s hat is so much more fun with the huge ears sprouting out like horns. Clank needs something more exciting… Obviously, I’ve only made one eye so far. 😉 Also, Clank’s antennae should be a darker gray… Decisions, decisions… The only thing I’m absolutely sure of is that I’ve got to get started on round 2 of Clank’s hat!
Anyway, I’m moving forward…
