i should really be crafting

so i've been working on a plush (a couple actually, by trial and error) for the Mortal Plush Show coming up in July (deadline is May 1st...eeeep!). i didn't want to go with the obvious happy or sad that you usually see in my softies, so i opted for embarrassment or shyness. i'm not really sure if i'm capturing it here. what do you think?

any words of wisdom/critic is welcomed. check out what their Flickr pool here. have a wonderful day!

I think this works! I would also suggest trying, if you haven't already, a crooked smile. The plush version of :-/ Perhaps that would look less "scared" and more shy?

I think both of the crabs are ADORABLE and I think it's particularly awesome that they are crabs with varying emotions. You're an artiste!
