Marshtomp


I needed a break from making Christmas presents, so I turned to Nanette Crochet's Mudkip pattern, found here here But of course I can never just do something with my brain shut off and since I had the proper materials, I thought I may as well make its evolution Marshtomp, too. Fortunately, he was easy to do. The head, cheeks and long spike are her pattern; you can find them on the website above. The headfin, arms, legs, fins and belly patch are below.
