The cat family and two koalas

After creating the humans I got tired of fine felted features like fingers and felted a lion for a change. That turned out to be the beginning of the cat family obsession! Here he is, the First lion. He was sold soon and I missed him so much... http://picasaweb.google.com/oiolin.gallery/Lion I felted the Second one.   http://picasaweb.google.com/oiolin.gallery/Lion02 And although I haven't sold him yet ;) I proceeded felting the big cats. I've already made a panther once, so I wanted to try something new. A Tiger? That was a challenging although very interesting task! And you know... some people say this tiger is my self-portrait :) Cautious and open-hearted, curious and good. http://picasaweb.google.com/oiolin.gallery/Tiger At the same time I took an order for a koala. And I felted a nice one. Maybe too nice because my daughter refused to give it away! What could I do? - Felt another one. So here they are: http://picasaweb.google.com/oiolin.gallery/Eating

Needle felted... humans?

Image
It takes me a century to publish a new post but I'm far more productive when it comes to felting :) So here there are my needle-felted humans: a couple of human-like Inferno-creatures with their fire-breathing pet :)   http://picasaweb.google.com/oiolin.gallery/Inferno and a Lady pirate (inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean :))   http://picasaweb.google.com/oiolin.gallery/PirateGirl The figures have firm wire frame inside, the Pirate is fixed to the wooden stand (pine bark). The most fine and most interesting part of work was about their faces and eyes particularly. Can you catch a glimpse of light in the eye? :) Oh, and I made the pistol as well! I don't know why I'm proud of it so much, lol :)
