Photoshop Fun

The images of the kid and oranges aren't mine, I just pulled them off the internet somewhere. But they were so cute, they inspired me to do some photoshopping- so fun! I think it would be a fun way to display these little guys in the future...

Wee... who knew we could have so much fun in a glass of OJ?

What's that droplet doing in my cereal bowl? I told you these little guys were mischievous ;)

*if you are the creator of the original photograph and do not want me to use it in this way, i will gladly take it down. i have no way of tracking the rightful owner since i got them through a quick internet search- thank you!*

Fanta Tröpfchen

this little guy has been causing a ruckus in my sketchbook for quite some time. behind that friendly smile lies quite the mischievous little character :D

this is a new character that I'd like to explore. there will be Milk Tröpfchen, Juice Tröpfchen and all sorts of Tröpfchen. Btw, Tröpfchen means Droplet in German- I just used that because it's a very cute word in German and I am German, so it was fitting for this time around :)

He's my first attempt - there's still a few minor tweaks I would like to make here and there, but overall I am pretty happy. What do you think?

Finally... I made a treasury of my own :D

It will expire on Saturday but until then you can see the treasury I made here. I know, I was a little bit narcissistic, but I had to add one of my latest mushrooms too ;p

Benny the Narwhal

I really enjoy knitting and crocheting from other people's patterns. I love not having to think about what's next and just meditatively crochet or knit. It's so relaxing!

I love how this little Narwhal turned out and I'm already on my 2nd one. So so cute! I will definitely buy some more of Edafedd's patterns :) I want to make the whale, snail, beluga, and dolphin- just about everything in that shop :D

Froggie in a flowerbed

lil' froggie loves nature!

made a smaller version of the one I made the other day. He's about 3.75 inches tall. So teeny, yet so sweet. He's going to my shop. He's trying to find a lilypad, will you help him?

Froggie Peek-a-Boo

I made this little froggie for my brother's birthday. He loves frogs and saw some of the even smaller versions I had done for some co-workers and told me that he wanted one for himself one day. So of course, I knew I'd just have to make one for him- afterall, you don't get many 21 yr old guys asking for plushies :D I made this little guy with extra goofy big eyes and a bowtie. He's about double the size of my other froggies that I've made in the past. He's my fave froggie thus far. I'm thinking of making some similar ones for my etsy shop- I need some smaller items for the shop and I think they would be just right. Although I have no idea where to find those kinds of eyes again, I got this pair in a huge lot of eyes I bought on ebay. If any of you have seen them before... let me know. I'll be keeping my eyes open too. I do think the other eyes also turn out cute, just depends on what look you want.
