I was once again struck with inspiration to make some sad critters. So here they are, the newest members of the melancholy community, I'm pleases to introduce Drystan, Arista, and Horace.


This is Drystan, he is extremely cynical. As a result, none of the other bunnies really enjoy being around him. He doesn't have many friends. So he's melancholy. But he is still smirking. His name means "riot" or "tumult" this is, incidentally, what he causes.


Arista's name means "ear of corn". It is refering to her huge and disproportionate ears. She had a repressive childhood. She has trust issues, poor dear. So she won't tell all of the reasons that she is melancholy.


Lastly (for this topic!) There is Horace. He has very short legs. He could never keep up with the other bears.


He wants to be a movie-star, but he is really uncomfortable in front of the camera, making his aspiration impossible. No wonder he is melancholic, poor thing. See the fidgety look on his face?


Comments? Constructive critism?

I love their little life stories. Drystan is my favorite one of the bunch, and I laughed myself silly at the meaning of Arista's name.

To be honest, I really enjoy disproportionate stuffed toys. They're just so delightfully original and cuddly. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Good job all around!

Thanks!
I also am always suprised at the amount of personality that comes with a couple buttons and some thread.
I like making them disproportianate. Who wants a happy teddy? Not me. It's fine without my love  Wink

Remember my mistakes,
remember you can change,
Remember that it's up to you...
to go and shape your life into
one that's worth of remembering...
