Lovely. That first one reminds me of a cartoon character I have seen.

Thank you! I must admit that the seahorse was not my own idea, I have a crafty book and a lot of these come from there. The turtles also.

The seahorse is wonderful! And I also really like the caterpillar critter with all the eyes :D

The seahorse, Olympic bear and turtles are not my own invention, I had a crafty book at the time which inspired me a lot. But the snail and frog and fish were my own ideas after looking at the shape of the stone.

That caterpillar was supposed to be a snake ;) I just wanted to see whether I can glue stones together. Again these are half peas on top. I have no idea why I was doodling then what I did. It's been a long time ago ;)

Nice! Really like the whale (I think it's a whale) and the small turtle.

I'm not really sure what kind of fish it is supposed to be, it was freestyle ;) If you look closely, there is even a slight bent in the stone, where I put the floss. I love it when things speak to me like that!

If you'd like to make such a turtle, it really should not be too difficult. Just one big stone and several small ones. Four for the feet, one for the head and one for the tail.

What a lovely set! I love the snake-like creature with what looks like multiple eyes on its body, a bit spooky but colourful and happy. And the imagination you need to see a frog in a stone, and turn it to one! I'm utterly impressed.

I seriously have no idea what I was thinking there with the eyes ;) These apparently also are half-pease glued to the stones. And then I was just doodling around and this happened.

And the imagination you need to see a frog in a stone, and turn it to one! I'm utterly impressed.

Aw, thank you! I guess sometimes it just hits you, without even thinking.

You painted these a child? They are so detailed, it's incredible.

I love the seahorse, turtles, and fruit-nuts. But honestly, the two that never came to be look like very fine rock 'monsters' to me :-)

Well, child and teenager. Anything that happened in the old Eastern German days is described as childhood ;) I had just turned 16 when the wall fell.

The turtles, seahorse and also Olympic bear are not my own design, I got them from a crafty book. Others like the snail, frog and also the fish with open mouth were indeed inspired by looking at the shape of the stone.

Good idea with the rock monsters! Didn't William Shatner want rock monsters in Star Trek V? And never got them? Looks like he finally will! Really good idea, I shall make a note LOL
