Despair vs Hope First Material Iteration

While I sent my bunny to La Guardia Studio for 3D scanning, and while everyone else seems to be using 3D printing, I wanted to try a new material. Bunny supposed to be fluffy, plus I think it would make a contrast between the softness of the cute hopeful animal and the cruel heartbroken characteristic of it.

In the new version, I corrected the size and made it smaller.

I have never tried wool felt before, so this has been my very first attempt.

The needle is really sharp, my fingers are now covered with tiny red scars...

I am super glad that the form turned out to be almost exact as my tin foil sculpture.

In addition, I added a red heart that fits right into the hollow body part of the bunny to emphasize on the missing heart concept.
