That is, by far, the world's greatest needle-felted octopus.

Cross that off the list of weird things I never thought I'd say lol

:omfg: Wow! So many details! The blue rings on the head, the dark shading at the tips of the arms, the tons of tiny suckers!! And those purple eyes!!
Just amazing and beautiful! *is floored*
the description says "Needle felted blue spotted purple Walrus" Is that his name?

You are too sweet! Thanks for noticing, it means a lot. Yes he was a tough one, but it was worth it, I really like how he turned out, a rare occasion, I'm so critical of my work.
HA! About the name, Thanks for letting me know, I changed the description. I had listed him as the same time as the walrus so guess I just mixed them up. No his name was Kevin actually :) Thanks again! :heart:

What a lovely octopus! :D The colors are fabulous; I especially enjoy the way the tips of the arms turn dark, besides the amazing spots/rings on the top of the head of course! The eyes are cute too and the suction cups look great.

In fact I have seen your wonderful work for a while but am only now getting around to commenting. I am now coming out of lurking mode, heehee, because it's high time I expressed my admiration for such fabulous needle felting! Your craftsmanship is amazing. If you don't object, might I ask for some advice about some of your techniques?

You are so sweet! Thanks so much for your compliments!! This octo is one of my favorites & I'm glad that you notice all of the details that I put into it. Of course looking at your gallery you are kind of a felted octopus pro, in fact everything you have done is truly amazing! I have seen your items around here before too, and on on Etsy as well right? Anyway you do Beautiful work and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have on techniques, although I think I could learn more from you :) Thanks again! :heart:

First of all, you're very welcome; you really deserve the compliments! Your skill is very apparent and I'm just saying what I see. :) I love felting octopi, they're perfect for the medium don't you think? Thank you for saying I'm a "felted octopus pro"! That's very flattering! :D They are so much fun. Yes, I'm on etsy too and I think that's where I saw your work first. Thank you so much, Amber! :hug: Heehee, I doubt that! I think we'll learn from each other. :D I will note you with my questions.

wow I love it! I saw this in my message box but hadnt got round to commenting on it. I have literally just woke up like 5 mins ago after having a dream with this octopus in it! I dreamt Id opened my desk drawer and found a blue one in it, and after wondering why it looked familiar, put it in my pocket and carried on with the rest of the dream. Then I got to a supermarket checkout and some kid had one, with one of the tentacles tied onto his belt- and he used the underside of the octopus to slot coins into using it as a purse. All the coins stored in the head area of the octopus....
-So when I came on here now to check my messages I was like gaaahhhh its the octopus from my dream! But I realise I only thought that because Id subconciously seen it here a few days ago. Haha

But yeah. thats such an awesome octopus :love:
