Hey guys, a little help over here please!

I'm thinking of taking this motorcycle figure:
http://www.balloonhq.com/faq/sculptures/......cle.html

...and adding a figure sitting on it -- like maybe a Pink Panther, Goofy, or Daffy Duck. But I can't seem to locate any designs that I like. I was hoping that someone here could help fill in the blanks.

The idea I'm working on is to be able to twist the entire combo in less than 5 minutes (once the balloons are prepared), so nothing too complicated -- no bouncing eyes, etc.

One last favor. I'm on the road right now, busking in Europe. I don't have a fixed address, a credit card, or any extra space in my suitcase -- so please don't recommend any books or DVD's, etc. Direct hyperlinks (like the motorcycle link above) or diagrams sent to my PM box is really what the doctor ordered.

Thanks guys! I know someone here will come to my rescue.

You know you are a magician when you have boxes full of lecture notes you have never read, but still are excited about going out and buying more.

This is where I should be able to say 'Thanks!', but instead all I can say is 'thanks for nothing'. I clearly outlined that books and DVD's are not helpful at the moment.

Fellas, let's keep a little perspective here: It's a BALLOON figure for goodness sake!

I guess I should thanks my lucky stars that I'm not drowning or something.

Chance,

You could do what I did when I came up with my balloon sculptures of Pink Panther, Goofy, and Daffy Duck. Research my friend, research. Check out the cartoons, comic books, and movies involving these characters. Examine the toys, figurines, and statuary of the same. The instructions are there, just look.

Hope this helps,

Carl

As I said I'm living out of my suitcase, I don't carry a computer with me and have to rely on expensive internet Cafés, and I don't have a credit card or a fixed address at the moment. If anyone who knows how to make these types of figures really wants to help, what I need are pix and step-by-step plans sent to my email address. Having to make replies like this one just eat up my time and money.

Constantly reminding me what books to buy, or sending me to German language websites that have nothing to do with ballooning, also just eats away at my time and my money.

If you have something to say, if you want to add to this discussion, please make it something helpful -- something that DOESN'T waste my time or my money. I surely wouldn't do it to you.

When living out of a suitcase and busking for money I would assume on of the first things you learn is to make due with what you have.

If I knew how to make it id help you no doubt, but theres got to be some way for ou to improvise or find it on your own. if not...do without. good journey.

Nothing comes for free Chance, you want to save yor money you don't want to buy books or dvd to learn how,...no plb for me but I'm not sure that the balloons comunitee will like those kind of feelings. http://yvessevy2.free.fr/forum/viewforum......b90624b3 here are some tutorials but all in french. So perhaps you can buy a book to learn french...Oh I forgot you want to save your money

Chance,

cashy001 has sent you a wealth of information, albeit in Japanese. But don't worry about the language issue, especially since German is far easier than Japanese and you can't read that either, because the photos on this site do lead you in the right direction. If you have a working knowledge of balloon sculpting, then these sculptures will be a piece of cake. Otherwise, you'll need to talk to Malik.

Cheers,

Carl
