...That feeling when you've poured in about 30-40 hours into plush work and nothing is actually done and you are back to square one. D:
I think this is only natural when refining patterns though, hating bits and pieces of it and eventually getting to a point where you're okay enough with it to stuff it up and seal it once and for all.
Some random things and a few vacation pictures under the cut:
I haven't quite disappeared but I've been M.I.A. because of my vacation; I quite enjoy these, while stressful at times because I end up visiting my parents, but part of me always wishes I could have been working on things the entire time too.
Here are the few things I managed to work on after I came back.. hopefully more to come soon.
Garchomp took me a while.. but I finished him yesterday. :D
I bought a lot of pompoms I didn't know what to do with, and after making a couple gifts for a friend's birthday I decided to make a few more just for fun. :D
Not my standard pokemon sculptures, it's nice to do something else for a change. Also my recent addiction of black cherry soda in the background. ^_^;
Okay now for some pictures from my trip! Everyone else had their photos uploaded like the week after. One month or so later for me.. Slowpoke is slow, yes?
There are supposed to be more photos but I just realized that 90% of my pictures apparently didn't copy onto my computer from my memory card and I deleted them lolol. I'll probably have to recover them because it would be a shame to never see them again.
Here are a few of the ones that made it:
Here's a little gecko we found at our hotel.. the colours are so vibrant. ;_;
The most amazing ahi tuna burger I've ever had in my life. <3
Common birds that parade the streets! They look so colourful compared to the crows and pigeons we have in Canada..
This was at the Hilton resort, they had a big koi pond!
I think they were supposed to display something on that TV but it wasn't on since I took this on the first night.
Before vacation, I got a free bookshelf and just dumped everything on it. I'm still working on rearranging everything but here's a somewhat recent picture:
It's cluttered as hell and I've been slowly working on rearranging things.. still deciding whether or not to keep plush and figures together (grand Slowpoke book case) or to have the plush together in a pyramid in my room which is where they are right now.
Anyway, school started this past week and I'm actually enjoying the sounds of some of these courses; I was initially counting on just doing barely enough to get through my classes but that might have to change. So, I'll have to figure out how to balance that with commissions, improving at competitive video games, and getting fit again.
Also this for those who have not seen it yet!
Alllllmost looks like it could be a copy of this leather Slowpoke plush here:
I can't really see the back view of the booty but I hope it'll be okay as I just ordered one. Most of the bootlegs are fairly cute in my opinion but there's just something slightly off about all of them.
In any case, I'm just glad to see another Slowpoke plush out there. :D
On another note, yesterday was the first time I've seen actual spiders in this suite since I moved here in May. There was not just one, but two of them... I hate spiders. So so very much.
