Using the extrusion method I started with the waist and built Gutsy from there. Extruding to the body I then shaped it using the vertices to conform with both the turnaround images but also adjust it along the way to conform to my own mental image.
I then extruded the arms and legs to the wrists and ankles. I created the gloves by pulling them out from the arm geometry, the feet and hands were a slight challenge but through lateral thinking and just taking my time. Through the process I also added an extra detail such as folds onto the boots.
With the main build of the body completed I deleted half of the body to mirror it to have perfectly symmetrical geometry.
