My Sock Creature, Tars Tarkas by khamarupa My Sock Creature, Tars Tarkas by khamarupa
I'm a huge fan of John Carter of Mars, by Edgar Rice Burroughs, if you've seen some of my other artwork you'll know that already. I got inspired by the character Tars Tarkas and this is the result. 3 pairs of huge green socks, a little vinyl, some buttons and bits here and there, and voila!! It's Sock Tars!! :D

Thanks guys. Now I gotta go grab him and hug him! LOL! Have you seen the trailer for Disney's John Carter yet? You get a pretty good glimpse of a Thark in it. :D

Me too! Some of my very favorite stories are on Barsoom (and I love the Venus stories, too) :) Tars Tarkas ROCKS! My very fave character is Woola. I want my very own Calot! Though I'd have to have a miniature Calot to fit in my house. LOL! ;)

Thanks guys. I admit I grab him up and hug him fiercely whenever I get the chance. LOL! Tars is also one of my very favorite characters... in all scifi actually! I had a bit of a brainstorm and had to bring the cuddly Sock Tars to life. :P

Great minds think alike!! I've done a Woola too and I want to do more, like great Lion and one of the White Apes... I'll get to those eventually. I think you're the only other person I've ever seen do a plushie from JCOM
