From time to time, I hand sew tribbles for my kid. I don’t do such a great job at it, but he doesn’t seem to mind. I can whip one out in 30 minutes or so. What a mess, though! The cut fur gets everywhere. It looks like a cat exploded in my lap by the time I finish one.
I did these with more traditional portrait lighting (the top one) and then with my attempt at recreating the lighting from the original series. The lighting could be harsh on that show, which leaves some heavy shadows.
