I've been playing with cut outs and fabric samples to create textures to give a better idea of what the puppets could look like in actuality. I pushed this a lot and made some of the characters into little rag-doll-looking puppets, by starting with very basic, classic 'Raggedy Annie' shape and building textures on top on photoshop and adding colour using layer styles and setting the colour overlay to multiply and soft light. I really like the results stylistically but I don't think Ill go with them as final designs because its not something that suits every character. For example, Ivy and Harley worked out a lot more successfully that catwoman, who seems to suit more slender and elongated shapes.
