"Simple? No threat? UGLY?!?!?! That does it!" So I finished Gnasty Gnorc on Thursday (well most of him was done in Tuesday, but I was procastinating on his mace), but was too busy to post.
I have to admit, I had never looked at Gnasty Gnorc properly before. When I played the game as a child, he was just this big green guy wearing a golden armour. Of course I knew, he was the bad guy - but I never really cared much for those. And compared to Ripto and the Sorcceress, he has close to no screentime. Just this scene in the beginning and then (if I remember correctly) nothing until you finally get to chase him down - and that was it.
So when I tried to figure out, how to make him, I looked at pictures of him and my first thought was: "oh look who skipped leg day waaaaay too often!" He has this massive upper body and his legs are sooo weak and short. I wondered how this guy was able to stand.
My Gnasty Gnorc is not able to stand on his own, his upper body is just too heavy and his legs are too weak. I think, if I remake him (one day), I will be able to fix this by using strong wire in his legs instead of these weak pipe cleaners.
I feel like I needed a higher abstraction level for making Gnasty Gnorc as his illustration in the game is somewhat poor and as the Gnasty Gnorc on the cover of the game and the one in the game actually don't look much alike. But overall, I'm happy with the result. Except for his legs, I would only make his lower body a little bit shorter.
For now, I am happy, that my main villains are all finished, so that I can leave on vacation tomorrow without an unfinished project at home. To my surprise, I could also finish another character yesterday. I will post the result in the next week. I don't think that I can crochet a lot next week, as I will be doing loooots of sightseeing, but maybe I can finish a few squares for my granny square blanket. #spyro #spyrothedragon #spyroreignitedtrilogy #gnastygnorc #villain #crochet #crocheting #crochetlove #crochetaddict #crochetaddicted #häkeln #diy #handmade #crochetcollections #crocheterslife #crochetersofinstagram #crochetpattern #thespyrocrochetingproject - 18 hours ago
