Back in my younger years (you know, 2 1/2 years ago) I interned for a summer research project involving axolotls. Part of my unfortunate duties was the daily care of a hundred or so of the slimey things (axolotta work if you ask me) . . . instilling within me a profound dislike of them. Until now. When I look at your axolotl my heart melts, he is so cute! Maybe axolotls aren't as terrible as I remember!

But in summary, great job! He looks amazing! I love how you made the external gills look all fluffy and feathery, just like they do in real life! I can't even being to imagine how you went about creating the pattern for this! Incredible!

Wow, I'm so glad you all like him!

I kind of just made him up as I was going along....
His head was made in one piece, as a ball, and the body was made as a triangle and sewn up along the tummy.
The frills were made in little loops and sewn on seperately.

It was a labour of love, I've been obsessed with axolotls for about 15 years!
