A while back, I saw a punch art character made by a lady named Anita. I do not know her last name. Anyway, I have always wanted to try to make this character and decided to give it a go. I had no idea how hard this one would be. Ready to meet this one?
Well here he is. It is Batman in case you could not tell. I do apologize for I forgot to rotate the photo so you have to see him sideways right now. He took me so long to make that I did not even try to get him onto a card. Now maybe it's just me but I think he looks a little off. Maybe it's because his legs look so short. I don't know. Something just doesn't seem right about him. If you figure it out, please tell me. For now, let's break him down.
Wow this photo is a little blurry. This is the upper half of Batman. I am going to do a list of punches after the bottom half photo that way I can list everything at once.
Head - owl punch; you will need to cut the eyes and mouth out (I did this free hand)
Face - 1" square trimmed to fit
Top of Cape - large oval
Cape - I cut this out free hand also
Chest - wide oval; cut and reshape with 5 petal flower punch or star punch
Lower Chest - wide oval; reshape with wide oval on each side to narrow for the waist
Shorts - wide oval; reshape again with the wide oval on each side to make leg openings
Legs - 2 large ovals
Boots - 2 large ovals
Shoes - 2 small ovals; 3/4" circle (2) flattened on bottom
Belt - 1/4" x 1" strip with a 3/4" x 1/2" pieces for bags and buckle
Upper Arm - small oval (2 for each arm)
Bottom arm - large oval
Glove - large oval reshaped
Hand - 1" oval
I will try to find the blog that had this character on it so that I can refer you to it for more detailed instructions. I will be honest and tell you this one really challenged me today. It is definitely one for the advanced punch artist to try.
Well that's it for today. I will return tomorrow with a much more sensible project to share with you. Thanks for stopping by today!!!!!
