So I am trying to figure out how to make some squiddles from the comic MSPaint Adventures. They are these little squid-like toys that could be bean-bags with "electromagnets" inside so they pair up like Hallmark's Kiss-Kiss Bears to form "Tangle Buddies!" But there are a bunch of ways it looks like they could be made. Since it's a 2D comic, I'm having trouble expanding that to a 3D form, as they look like they should be. There's no shading hints because of the cartoon style of the comic. Any fans or plushie veterans want to help with this project? Maybe we can do a craft-along.
For material, I'm thinking a velvety stretch, since I have some bright pink leftover from a "bean bag doll" kit. I will probably applique the eyes since they are very stylized. I don't think I could find big enough plastic eyes either, especially since the scale is odd. They should be huge based on the chibi-teens they're next to.http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=002695
is what I'm working from. See the problem? And why I want to make them so bad?? Cuuuuute!
