I printed out the character to the size that I wanted, then measured lengths of copper wire which I twisted to fit the drawing.
I gave Dozel pointed feet and attached one large and one small nut into each foot using thin wire, then securing with epoxy glue.
The armature so far.
I measured the armature to a drawing of Greedy, I gave him more rounded feet and attached two nuts in each foot as I did for the Dozel puppet.
I gave Greedy smaller hands and only three fingers instead of four as it suits his character to have tiny, 'food grabbing' hands.
Below is a test that I did using foam to cover wire. I used spray glue to sandwich the wire in between two pieces of foam, then I trimmed the foam down to the shape I needed.
