Balloons are one of those things I keep coming back to. Maybe it�s a container for all my hot air. However, I turned this balloon and it was a nice size and I then thought how it could interact with some of my little characters. I had done a piece where a little girl was almost lifted off her feet by the balloons she was holding but even though this balloon was bigger I thought it looked too solid. More like a weather balloon and I though a climber would suit it just nicely. Getting the pose right was quite fun and I think it works better now.
