He reminds me of a little platypus!  Grin  I love it!  Did you freehand it?  What are you going to do with the finished piece?

I love the sequins too!! for some reason... maybe it's the mouth??... but he reminds me of those little Tomagotchi things that were so popular like 12-ish years ago??

That's awesome!  I love that the monster is "speaking" without words.

I made it for my friend Morgan, who makes stuffed monsters.  I freehanded it, but I have been drawing similarly worm shaped monsters for awhile.

Excellent. This might just be the inspiration I need to try embroidery again. I hope you do more pieces like this. :3
