too much plushing on my mind @ 04:28 pm

Tags:

I'm making a random list of Pokemon I'm thinking of making based on interest and materials on hand..
Any suggestions are welcome - I just didn't want to open requests up to anyone so I'm going to limit it to my f-list on here for now because people on DA tend to request the most random things.. XD





         I haven't even made a plush for my own collection.. and I have no custom plush of this guy yet.

         He'd be part of my psychic crew, sitting with poseable arms/legs to test armatures.

This would be good practice for the four legged animal pattern I've been working on! :D

     More practice with four legged animals.. I also have some fur that might look nice around the collar.
 
  Has four legs but is going to be a totally different pattern than the others.. I've always liked this guy. <3

I did Volcarona and have similar materials.. so, a possibility. Don't think he'd be too popular though, sadly.

or   A pretty pokemon that would help with that snake shape. (Will probably be poseable)





I probably won't end up making all of these (or if I do, it'll be.. a long time), but I'd like to at least get practice with some of them. Just trying to think of things that are dynamic in technique and will help push me a bit. I'm mostly trying to make plush for fun right now, and wanted to use the auction slots as a way to challenge myself to make something a bit more difficult than what I'm normally comfortable with. I'm not really as strapped for cash as I used to be 2 years ago when I first moved out, so I'm hoping for this to be more of a learning experience than motivation from the money.. I think the best things happen when they are done for fun and coincidentally happen to get you places. Silly me and having this idea that things will just end up working out in the end because I am too lazy to plan. ^_^;

Also Volcarona is done and photoshoot has happened too finally! Yay for unlazing myself.



Also my auctions just ended so I'll have to work pretty hard these next upcoming weeks. Good things tend to happen when I work hard though, just have to really put my mind to it.

I didn't know you liked Absol! Unless I am blind and didn't see your side collection. /has horrible memory

I've contemplated making a Breloom.. it would take some (or rather, a lot of) brainstorming though.

Absol is one of my lovelies. <3 She has a spot on my website ever since the beginning. ^-^

I've made a few Breloom plush and it's quite a challenge, mostly his mushroom cap but seeing a shiny version would be incredible. *u*

Ah, I see. Well the moneybag isn't super super ultra rare so it's not a huge loss - you will find it again someday! I've seen a bunch around.

By the way, did you get my last message? :o
I have some rock type metal figures I thought you might be interested in, you can check them out in my journal if you like. <3

TELL ME THAT "I'm out of a job" WAS A FIGURE OF SPEECH???
I am worried now.

But.. thank you. I actually didn't think this one was one of my better plush but for someone with your standards, it takes quite a bit to blow you away. So.. thank you. ;^;

Purugly, Persian, Giratina Origin, oh my!


I don't see how you would think that Volcarona isn't one of your better plush?! It is simply stunning and if I had money, I would throw cash at you for it!!

Purugly would be fun to make! I've thought about Persian as well.. more of that four legged form to practice. :D

I just didn't think the pattern was that complicated I guess.. but apparently I just got a DD today so maybe it's not as mediocre as I thought. XD

I know you would make a "purr"-fect Persian plush...:3

Wow, a DD?! Congrats, it is well deserved...:D

Your volcarona is beautiful. Just looking at it makes me feel a whole lot more inspired to work.

This means a lot coming from one of my biggest inspirations in plush making!

I hope all those ants being gone means I'll be seeing more work from you. :D

Your Volcarona is beautiful!!!! You are so talented, sweetie. <3

What materials do you have on hand? Perhaps that would make it easier for us to make suggestions! :D

Thank you Andrea! ;_;

I have mostly minky for fabric and I can make whatever clay custom parts (like Volcarona's eyes), but nothing really stops me from being able to buy the things I need either. <3
Feel free to throw whichever ideas at me!

A Mew might be interesting if you want to work with poseable things- she has a long tail and might be less complicated than Dragonair? Idk! I like the idea of an Absol plush. ^_^

I'd love to see a Marill but that's just me. :P

Hmm, I tend to make plush of pokemon that don't have a whole lot of plush and I don't think Mew would qualify under that.. XD

I think Absol is probably a very likely possibility - I've actually thought about making a Marill too! :D
It would be simple but cute and there's a lot of different things I could do to give it style. <3

Marill's tail would be kinda fun since it's all zig-zaggy. :D You know how there is a tufty Pichu pokedoll? My dream Marill plush would be a shiny tufty Marill pokedoll. XD

I understand what you mean! Houndour/Houndoom might be an interesting choice... since they have many apendages to work with andddd it gives you that 4 legged pattern to practice with. Ponyta/Rapidash would be complicated and also work with 4 legs. :D Arcanine as well!

Wait, am I supposed to even be able to see this? lol I'm not on your friends list am I?

But uh if you want suggestions at least here are two -

Flygon.
Whenever I give my commissions a list, they almost always choose Flygon. To me, personally, he looks complicated but almost everyone who has made him said he was really fun to do. His eyes, wings and tail would all provide some sort of challenge too I would imagine?

Lileep or Cradily.
They'd make you think more out of the box, since you have to figure out how to make them stand. They're also interestingly shaped since they're like plants. Neither of them are really popular though. I think I'd be the only one to want them if you DID make them lol. But plant like pokemon, really, would work here though - like Sunflora, Bellsporut, etc.

Haha, not all my entries are friends only. ;)

We can add eachother if we haven't already though. <3

Ahh, Flygon's eyes! They are transparent, but it would be exciting trying to figure out how to interpret that into plush or clay form (if I decide to custom dat shit up).

Actually I've always wanted to make a Lileep, pokedoll or proportionate, either or. ;_;
That would be a good idea! Tempted to add it to the list..

YAY I'M LOVED 8D

Lol! Most artists cheat with the eyes xD as you can see -

http://allyson-x.deviantart.com/art/Flygon-Plush-244783722?q=boost%3Apopular%20flygon&qo=20 This one is one of mine

http://first-mate-kate.deviantart.com/art/Flygon-Crochet-Plush-267483843?q=boost%3Apopular%20flygon%20plush&qo=12 Another one of mine

http://xsystem.deviantart.com/art/Flygon-Pokedoll-202359311?q=boost%3Apopular%20flygon%20plush&qo=9 Annnd another one

http://bubble-rhapsody.deviantart.com/art/Shiny-Flygon-Plushie-280032246?q=boost%3Apopular%20flygon%20plush&qo=2 Annnd not mine but wish it was lol

But yeah they all cheated xD And out of ALL of his official merch, only the zukan has transparent eyes. If you actually strive to make the transparency, you'll probably be one of the only artists to ever do so lol.

xD and well *I* would totally buy it if you made a Lileep, but I'm probably the only one lol! Poor unloved sea lily... but I love her so.

Heya, I tried to message you back but I think you've disabled PMs so I couldn't respond. It's been long sold though, I'm afraid. :(

That Volcarona is stunning. I'm so amazed by your work. ; A;
Also, if I might add, if you ever made Larvesta I would probably flip out. He needs more love <333
