I tried some different techniques for the armature of this puppet. The head is a basic ball and socket mechanism so that I could position in more positions.. The tail and ears are also adjustable.

The painted on the surface of the fabric to highlight its texture. Also, I chose the blue base to contrast the ginger fur.
