Why I built Dean? He's not among my favorite Discworld characters, but I generally like Wizard plots, and Dean's clothes had nice challenges: The odd, seremonial robes, huge belly and pointy shoes combined with the leather coat. I also though Mustrum Ridcully I built before needed something to... Well, shout at, probably. I think I should build The Librarian, too.
This is somewhat inspired by Paul Kidby's art, though I took plenty of liberties. I began with the SNOT letterning on the coat; It was quite a puzzle, especially with the TO on the middle. Ts are hard. Then I made the head, basic stuff, made plenty of bearded faces with the Hobbit project. The torso was rather fun to build, the stomach came out nicely and the flapping robes added some detail. The odd width of the leather coat was problematic, but was solved with combination of offset and SNOT. The legs were fun (usually they are dull). The pompous trousers (combination of curved slopes and travis bricks) look nicely ridiculous with white stockings and the pointy shoes. They are also nice contrast to Ridcully's more practical boots and trousers. I also made the lgs rather thing and the boots small to emphasize Dean's bulk. The arms are basic, with ball joints on elbows. The staff (with, as Nanny Ogg would note, knob on the end) turned rather nice.
