Red face Felted wool betta on etsy

Hi, everyone! I'm an artist and proud betta owner -- see my beloved Dart in some of my other threads. She's doing a LOT better now thanks to the advice I got on here.

I specialize in needle felted wool (that's where you poke a wad of wool with a needle a thousand times until the wool condenses into a shape) and I made a betta!


I've actually been working on it for quite some time, several months on and off, trying to get the details right. I've listed it in my etsy shop where you can see more photos: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1701964...lue-and-yellow

What do you guys think?

That's pretty impressive! It's a lot bigger than I thought it was just looking at the pic.

Thank you for the encouraging feedback, guys! It was so much fun making him I'll probably make more. Besides, there are so many beautiful betta colors and shapes that I can't just make one!

About the size, yeah, much bigger than a real betta. Makes it a little bit easier to do the details.

Holy crap that is gorgeous. Is it based off of any betta in particular?

Thank you! I had a feeling people here would like him... ^^

@TheStormyPetrelofCrime: No betta in particular, just a bunch of photo references and my imagination. I would like to make a likeness for a betta who passed before his time, but I'm a little intimidated.
