Watermelon Snonkey by FamiliarOddlings Watermelon Snonkey by FamiliarOddlings
Another snonkey (snail-monkey)! This time watermelon. He's got black seeds on his chest and the one on his left palm. :D I've had this guy in the works for a long time, since summer, just sitting there half finished. I finally kicked myself into completing him and I think he turned out pretty good! :) However, there are some things I wish I had done differently... Next time, right?

This snonkey is about three inches long, not including tail, and about three inches tall, not including eyestalks.

All snonkeys are made out of needle-felted wool over a pipe cleaner armature, plastic eyes glued in place, and a painted escargot shell lined with pipe cleaner securely attached to the back.

You are very creative/talented. I would have named it a "hermit monkey," but snonkey somehow suits it better

Oooh, I wish I had some watermelon now. The first thing I noticed was his absolutely beautiful shell! It really looks like watermelon rind and is so, so pretty. I love his seedy chest and the cute little face. His stripes are really wonderful too. I cannot wait to see if you make more fruits like a starfruit! Although I guess a starfruit would just be yellow unless you gave her a star shaped crest about her face or something. :blackrose:

Haha! Watermelon is my twin's favorite melon. The shell was the first thing I made for him and was ready months ago. It was really hard for me to feel like his body "measured up" to the shell quality-wise, since I thought the shell really did look like a watermelon! :D I'm thrilled you feel the same! I was so proud of the shell that I was showing it off to people and was constantly surprised they didn't immediately recognize it as a watermelon snonkey shell, haha. I'm glad you think the stripes look okay. Thank you for the wonderful comment, Aria! :heart:

Ooooh, a starfruit snonkey with a star crest sounds so adorable! :aww: I might try that! I want to try a bunch of different fruits.
