Sea Slug Kuniei by FamiliarOddlings Sea Slug Kuniei by FamiliarOddlings
Another sea slug, as requested by ~zincuddlefish, this time more accurate to a real species. It is Chromodoris kuniei - wiki article here: [link]

The colors were so hard to get even close to right! I had to do so much layering. :faint: But it was fun. :D I'm gonna do more of these.

Made out of needle felted wool over a wire armature so it can be posed (especially the "eye stalks" heehee). It's about seven inches long.

I haven't decided yet if I'm putting it my etsy shop [link] or not...

Oh wow this is amazing. I love these little creatures! Though are you sure it isn't a nudibranch? Oh man this is so gorgeous I can't stop looking at it, this is brilliant. I hope to learn how to do this one day!

ahaha, no way! i just cast a little bronze sea slug, and i'm playing with some wire and woolfibre to felt some other little creatures, and i've been thinking to myself, 'felicia, you need to ask davina for a proper how-to on those little adorable animals'

ok, so the coincidence doesn't sound as cool in words as it did in my head.
