Flekk the Leopard Seal - Soft Toy by Skia Flekk the Leopard Seal - Soft Toy by Skia
Full view please!


Okay, THAT was really fun to do! As kid I LOVED sewing animals using fabric remnants - and today I tried it again with my leopard seal Flekk.


Of course it's very simple - but I like it :)

1,5 h
For the colours I used Copic Markers. Wasn't sure if it would work - but it did ;)

Sometimes, ''simple'' is the best. In this case, I'd call it ''essential''. It looks streamlined, it looks flexible, and it looks like a seal (and not a fuzzy blob, fish or a sock). Also goes well with the minimalistic/simplistic aspect of your arsenal of styles, as if you've transferred it to 3D. I wouldn't mind using fabric scraps, but for me it depends on the subject. It seems to work very well with sea animals!

On a different but not unrelated note, I feel a sudden inspiration to draw pinnipeds- focusing on the tribe to which the leopard seal belongs. I've always loved seals, but apparently Flekk has an influential charm to her.

Das ist einfach klasse. Gerade dieser Blick :>
Generell finde ich eure beiden Chars wirklich richtig toll. Und die Icons auch. Wie seid ihr eigentlich auf den Seeleoparden und den Makohai gekommen? :)

Danke ^^

Seeleoparden mochte ich schon immer sehr - es sind einfach interessante Viecher mit ihren doch sehr eigenen Aussehen, dem reptilienartigen Kopf, ihrer räuberischen Lebensweise und dem faszinierenden Mordsgebiss ;) An Land eher träge, im Wasser flink, verspielt und neugierig. Sie können sogar singen!

Und Culpeo ist ja seit eh und je begeisterter Experte für alles Haiartige, da lag der Mako als Gegenstück zum Seeleoparden sehr nah.

Simpel?
Also mit Nadel und Faden kann ich nicht sonderlich gut umgehen, darum bin ich immer tiefst beeindruckt, wenn Leute Genähtes zum Besten geben :O
Deine "Robbe" sieht klasse aus! Besonders schön fies der Gesichtsausdruck, harrr!
Hast du da Granulat als Füllmaterial benützt?
Also ich bin immer noch ganz hin und weg von diesem Plüschi ^^"

Vielen lieben Dank! :)
Nun ja, es besteht im Grunde nur aus zwei identischen Stoffmustern - die waren sehr rasch zusammengenäht. Was dann letztendlich einen Großteil der Zeit gekostet hat, war, das ganze nach dem Nähen auf "links" zu drehen, eine Mords-Frickelarbeit bei dieser Größe (vor allem die Flossen), ich hätte da fast die Geduld verloren und es vernichtet XD
Als Füllmaterial habe ich Füllwatte benutzt, für zukünftige Viecher werd ich mir aber auch Granulat holen :) Macht jedenfalls sehr viel Spaß, mehr wird folgen :)

That is beautiful! I bet if you were to ever open plush commissions, or just make a bunch of Flekk leopard seals to sell, you could get a LOT of money. It looks better than all those plushies that are being sold at stores!
