the only reason i made a hippo (other than the fact that hippos are adorable) is that the munnyworld figure mini bub i used already resembles a hippo. with all that i needed to get done by christmas, i took advantage of the shape to save myself a lot of time. i'm overjoyed at how he turned out and i want to make more zombies. i want to make more figures of any kind. i seriously enjoy making them. since i'm painfully attached to literally everything i make, when i finish a piece (in any media) i catch myself staring at it and longing to look at it when we're apart. (yea, i'm serious.) i don't know how it's even possible, but i do that even more with the figures. i just don't have the time to make as many as i'd like. i even still have 3 half-done ones lying around just dying to come to life, while they stare at me with their sad little unpainted eyes, pleading for me to finish them! some day, my friends. some day.
