Thank you for your kind comment. :) The pangolins are among my favorite crafts and I'm hoping to spread pangolin awareness with them.

I love them too. Can't believe so many ppl don't even know them! They're really cute, it really sucks they're among endangered species.

It does indeed. I wish the Chinese and other followers of traditional medicines weren't so bent on killing everything that walks on the earth. -.-

True, but I'm afraid there's not much we can do about it, especially when it comes to traditional medicine and old people's beliefs.  :|

That's right. Let's hope younger generations will be more educated and will think twice before blindly following tradition...

One can hope. I'm sure the change will come someday, but who knows how many animals have been poached beyond saving by then.

I think that sandshrew's design might be based on the pangolin. :3

I bet it was. They all look truly professional made. Do you still have any of those pangolin plushies at home or you sold all of them?

I have the large Willy plush since he would be too expensive to sell. The smaller chibi plushies were all made on demand and the fridge magnets were sold a while back. :)

The Chibi pangolins did (Refered to as Willy's kids although they're actually chibi-Willys). One went to USA and the other moved to another village here in Denmark. :3

Hm, I think I've seen a few in the zoo and then on television ofcourse. It's amazing that such fairly large animals can live on a diet of ants/termites. But then again... Whales live from plankton, so that's even more crazy with size. xD

pangolins are awesome, and these are made of pure win x3 I can sympathize with you a bit on the scales... I made a sonic styled pangolin av on Second Life, and placing all those scales was a pain >.< I can only imagine how much work this was, but you did a great job :D

Ooooh, pangolins! Great job!I bet they were most difficult to make from all of your plushies. :omg:

demiveemon Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you and you're right in your assumption. The large one was the by far most difficult and time consuming plush I've ever made. He took about 4 months to make, since I attached all the scales with thread and needle and made his body on the go. Here are some pictures of his creation: [link] :)

With the smaller chibi versions I use glue instead, but they are still a lot of work and are covered by about 300 scales each. I still need to count the scales on the big one. %D

illy9 Featured By Owner May 1, 2012
You're welcome. They all look very professionally made. Oh my, if the small one already has about 300 scales, then the big one must have more than 1000 of them! No wonder it took you so long to sew it. :omg:
Reply
:icondemiveemon:
demiveemon Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm guessing anywhere between 1000-3000 scales. The worst part was actually attaching them with thread. It was very straining work (I don't want to know how many times the needle backfired into my poor fingertip instead of penetrating the material) xD for my hands and since I needed to be able to access the offside of the fabric, adding bodyparts and scales went hand in hand.

With the small ones I make the body first and add the scales last, using glue. That cuts the time with weeks. xDDD
