Futurama in 3D Paper Quilling!

How can you not love the foul mouthed, beer drinking, cigar smoking robot 'Bender' from the animated T.V series Futurama!! Not to mention Dr. Zoidburg, the alien lobster doctor, Lord Nibbler, and of course there had to be a brain slug somewhere in there! Ahh, Futurama- how do you come up with such crazy characters that are awesomely fun to turn into 3D quilling?!


No special techniques were used in making these guys, unless you call patience a technique. As you can see each segment of Bender's arms and legs were made individually, so this took a little time. 

I am super happy with how Dr. Zoidburg turned out. His facial features are hilarious, and his claws practically made themselves, being nice little quilled teardrop shapes. 

It was the first time I have used a quilled streamer in my quilling. This worked perfectly around the brain slug to give it that softer, blobby look.

Brain slug is 3.5cm/1.4 in
Bender is 7cm/2.7 in
Dr. Zoidburg is 6.5cm/2.5 in
Nibbler is 5.5cm/2.1 in

All were made with 6mm and 3mm strips.
