Wow. I've made a lot of Fluttershies. It's a good thing I haven't used this title yet.
This Fluttershy is made of minky, is made from my new pattern, has a new mane and tail pattern, and new eye and cutie mark designs. I drew the eyes and butterflies myself. Her wings are wired for posability and have satin stitch details, and her neck is jointed with the ability to rotate 360 degrees! There's some plastic pellets in her feet to help keep her balanced.
If you do requests, I am requesting my OC as a plushie. (Basically the yellow would be replaced with white, pink would be replaced with grey, the eye color would be red instead of cyan, and the cutie mark would be grayscale)
If I had any pointage, I would gladly give you for the plush Albino Fluttershy. (You could also place a custom [removable] tag on her that says "Made in the U.S.A.". You could also give the albino pony some accessories [garments and whatnot] too!)
I don't do free requests and I don't know when or if I'll be opening back up for pony plush commissions.
You should also know that I don't think there's a single artist that does point commissions or free requests for plushies, certainly not of ocs. Real money goes into these plushies and so those that sell their work usually sell them for real money, enough to compensate them for their time and materials. Some artists do trade so if you make a craft or do artwork of some kind that you feel has a comparable amount of work or value involved, you can ask around and see if there's anyone who will do an art trade with you.
i would really like to some mane and tail help to, i keep looking at these plushes and cant get my head round how to do the flat curl, and how to get the hear to stand quite high on the head, did u use wire? xxx this is lovely by the way, its amazing what a difference to her personality it makes by making the head jointed
I didn't use wire, but I'm a big fan of using lots of darts for shape. I did use batting, which helps because it provides some stability while staying fairly flat. Some people for the curl at the end of her tail just twist the end of the tail until it lays flat on its own, I used a gusset because I felt it would be easier to do.
Her mane really is pretty simple. It's much like it appears, it's just hard to maintain the look of her from all angles if you make her show-accurate. Most people compromise on the amount of curve the shorter piece has at the front, so that her face is visible from both sides. Beyond that decision, it's really just testing curves. Trying to draw out the mane from this image may help: [link] (It's an animated gif, seizure warning if you have epilepsy or are prone to seizures, please don't click) even tracing them may help, and then let the lines continue to naturally curve in the areas you can't see. For all flat-ish pieces, I test in paper or paper towels, since it's much cheaper than fabric and requires little to no sewing. You can pin these tests directly to your pony body to see how they would look in a finished product and fix things you don't like by taping or cutting.
She looks wonderful! I love her lines and the colours you chose especially The bubblegum minky you use and the stuff I got looks so different, I think they must be diff. colours entirely, because this is just perfect for fluttershy.
Nah, it's just a really difficult color to photograph, and I don't like editing my colors in photos, even to make them closer to the real thing, because it makes me feel like I'm lying. Thanks! I might need it if another Plushie Comp doesn't come out in time!
I feel exactly the same O_O I'm sure you won't need the luck though, she's one of the nicest fluttershy's ever. Cross my fingers about the plush comp though.. I always seem to finish up ponies right after a new ones comes out too...
