Needle-felted Bobtail Squid by crocodiledreams Needle-felted Bobtail Squid by crocodiledreams
Wool roving, handmade polymer clay eyes, October 2012. About 5" Long.

This little guy is a Bobtail Squid, or Dumpling Squid. He's a little larger than life-size. He is unwired, so not really posable.

The spots. They killed me.

Edit 6-4-13: Sold!

I think the rocks tricked me into thinking he was underwater. I thought it was a photo of a real squid when I saw the thumbnail! XD LOL

You have the patience of a saint to have done all those spots. Fantastic!

That's because they're kind of cute, especially with those eyes. But they're utterly fascinating with their shape, the way they hunt and the way they communicate with their skin. :)

Omg, that is cuter than the real thing. The spots were well worth it. And the color is so perfect, you matched it so well to the actual colors!
