Tutorial : Jake Dog Adventure Time Clay Figurine

This is suppose to be brighter, but I have no idea why it doesn't load so.
Hi Everyone!
Today's all about "How to make Jake from Adventure Time!"

Who is Jake? Jake is a magical dog with stretchy powers (which explains his wavy hand above) from the cartoon - Adventure Time!
His best buddy is Finn who will probably appear in the next few post.

What you'll need :
1) Clay (Yellow, Black, White)
2) Craft Tools if available
3) Wire (optional)
4) Glue
 First off, roll a fat oval shape with yellow clay for Jake's body.
Next, make 2 tiny balls and pinch one end slightly to form a water droplet shape. Do the same for both tiny balls of clay. This will form the ears. Attach it to both sides of the head and press the sharper end down and blend it onto the head.
 Use a rolling pin or a pasta machine to make Jake's eyes. His eyes are completely white with a black outline. Flatten the black piece of clay and use mini circle cookie cutters or anything round (I used a pen cover) to cut the black circles out. Then, take 2 equal pieces of white clay, roll it into a ball and press it down. Make sure it's slightly smaller than the outer black piece. Glue the black piece on Jake's head, and then the white piece on top.
 Jake Dog's muzzle is fairly easy to make. Roll out a longer piece of yellow clay with the middle thinner than both sides. Use your finger to bend it to form a 'V' shape. Then, roll out a tiny round black clay and attach the 'nose' to its muzzle.
 Before attaching the muzzle, I rolled a very very tiny long thin strip for the mouth (You can see it on the picture above and below). I attached it to the muzzle on both ends before attaching the entire thing on Jake's Face.
 Roll long strips of yellow for Jake's arms and legs. You can make it as long as you want as Jake from Adventure Time has those magical stretchy powers! I made ok-length legs so he could sit properly, but decided to play a little more with his hands. Attach his legs to the bottom and smoothen it out. Use glue or wire if needed.
 To make his wavy arms, I just bent it wherever I like with something round (You can use pencil/pen) and to keep it up, I placed a toilet roll tube for support. Leave it to dry (or bake if using oven baked clay) and tadaa!
 Now you can have your very own Jake Dog from Adventure Time!
You can make a whole bunch of him doing silly things!

Don't forget to come back and look out for Finn from Adventure Time!
