Stuffing For Brains

Painguin is a special sort of amigurumi. It was the most detailed and challenging amigurumi I'd made by this point. I was really excited about it when my friend/co-worker requested this particular guy. Painguin is his comic hero that he made up one day and draws all the time at work. Here is the execution along with the design he gave me:
I absolutely winged this pattern. I used elements from other patterns that looked similar to what I wanted. For example, the feet were made from a pattern for a lion main. A lot of things I also made up. This was the most embroidery I'd done to date, as well. I'm hapyp with everything on him, with the exception of how low the nose is. I was annoyed once he was finished with that the nose was so low, especially in consideration of how high it is in the picture. But it happened because it was the first thing I put on, before the eyes and tummy. My co-worker, however, was absolutely thrilled with the way he came out, so I guess that it's all good. ^__^

I think the blue yarn used in this is Caron Simply Soft Brites, Berry Blue, but it might also be Bernat Satin, Cobalt. I'm really not sure, as I didn't keep record of the yarns I used at this point. I don't know about the rest of the yarn.

Painguin was made in January of 2009.
