Forgot to post this weekend, so here are some process shots of Icarus' creation.

Originally Icarus was going to be an angel named you can see from the original sketch. Also he was going to have a small devil bear as a friend.

Note: I also taped out areas I wanted to remain the glow in the dark material, such as the eyes.

First coat of paint.

More detail is added. It was at this point I began to realise that he wasn't much of an angel....

But then as I gazed at the paper mache wings, my mind crept back into mythology and the obvious name popped in my head.

So the halo was dropped and Icarus was born.
