I really just have to brag about this anteater.:excited: I was nervous about it's fur pattern and body structure, but it came out even better than I expected. Anteaters are such strange and amazing creatures, sculpting its head was unexpectedly easy....it's just a curved cone with a couple eyes haha. I even added a little extra detail because it felt weird to be done so quickly. The body and fur was the difficult part, but I really enjoyed putting it together. It was a fun kind of difficult. Anyway, I just really really love this anteater and I hope you do too:love:

This anteater has a carnelian crystal heart and it stands about 5.5 inches tall. It has coat of high quality faux fur that is very soft. It's neck is made with a plastic ball and socket armature that can be posed with ease and will not wear out over time. The body frame is mildly posable; its forelegs and tail have a fully bendable wire armature and its back-legs bend slightly below the thigh. It also features plastic claws that will not break if battered. 


What is a Room Guardian??


Room Guardians are small creatures that protect one's home from negative spirits and energies. These friends can be easily placed on window sills, kitchen shelves, dressers, or wherever to keep watch over the room. Each guardian has a soft faux fur coat and each is individually sculpted from the wire frame to the clay face and hands, so no two are alike. Room Guardians are not plush, they have a solid body but their arms, tails, and necks are bendable and Inside each of their chests is a unique crystal heart to give each one a different energy. These little guys have a lot of character and they love having a home to watch over.

 1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
 The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they wer

Nooooooooomygod, this is amazing! ^^ Soo cool. Gah. Pretty pretty pretty. excited happy

Edit: I've calmed down now. (But I'm still amazed.) You are just getting better and better at this! The fur patterns and colours and lengths (they blend so well!), the sculpting and overall form of this and the paintjob, it's all amazuung. You really captured how cool anteaters are, even made it sort of cooler than a real one. xD
