I added 2 new emotions to the set (well, they're more like feelings than emotions)...and omitted one that was included in the previous sets (Worried/grey).
Happy (yellow). In the original Emoti-Nubbins set I was comissioned for, the client wanted Happy to be orange. But I changed it for this set. I feel like yellow is a happier color. It reminds me of sunshine.
Sick (green). I know...more of a feeling than an emotion. But I wanted a green Nubbin in there and thought "sick" was the most appropriate feeling. I know the traditional emotion for green is jealousy/envy, but that's a pretty complex emotion to do with such a simple monster. I suppose I could have made "Worried" green too (instead of grey). But I stand by making green the Sick one.
Sad (light blue). The very first Emoti-Nubbin was a sad, blue one. I made it specifically to promote awareness of the CPSIA vs. Handmade issue. A lady saw it and wanted to order a set of Nubbins with different emotions. Thus the concept of the Emoti-Nubbins was born.
Tired (dark blue). Another "feeling" more than "emotion". But I figured something schoolchildren feel a lot is tired. This is the first Nubbin I've ever made with little eyelids. I thought it needed the lowered eyelids to make it look like it was tired and make it look like it was yawning and not yelling. (Although I can imagine it whining, saying "Awwwwww!"). I don't know. It was an experiment. What do YOU think it looks like?
I wanted another "positive" emotion in the set. Plus, sometimes "happy" just doesn't describe it because you just feel downright silly!
*MARKET RESEARCH TIME!:
- What emotions would YOU want me to include in the Emoti-Nubbins?
- What colors have I not included (pink? brown? black? orange?) that you would put an emotion with?
- Would you change any of the emotions on the colors I DID include in this set?
I'm curious! PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT! ;)
