Commission – Pauline and Val (Dangerous Game)

This is the second part of an ongoing commission for “Bleuberry109” on DA, they are her original characters Pauline and Val from her story “Dangerous Game.”

This was the first time making sneakers and it wasn’t as easy as I thought.  The pattern still needs some adjustments and I need to find better material for next time. [It is so hard to find small eyelets and shoelaces . . . so, I’ll have to keep looking…]

And this is Val

Craft Swap – Sayaka Miki (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)

This is our third craft swap/trade!!!

We were very lucky to have this swap/trade with “LordBoop” on DA, she is an amazing plush-maker.  When she asked us for a commission or a trade, we knew right away that we wanted a trade.  With her amazing skills we knew she could bring to life one of our favorite characters from Monster Rancher  “Tiger of the Wind”

Now, our part of the trade was a “Super Chibi Sayaka Miki” from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. When she requested the super chibi plush I was concerned due to the complex design of Miki.  Although the plush is 11 inches tall [which is  not too small]  the biggest challenge is the body proportions. It has short and chubby legs and arms, not much room to add too many details.  Making each piece of the outfit to look proportionate without making the plush look crowded and sloppy was quite the challenge. I hope it looks nice after all.

We are very happy with this trade and we hope that she like this plush.

The original pattern for this plush belongs to “BabyLondonStar”  and this is an altered version of her pattern.

Featured Artist: A.S. Miniature Studio

We all have dreams but only a few will follow theirs.  For many of us is being able to work doing what we love whether is sewing, drawing, painting, knitting or writing.

During our journey we all come across people who will crush us while passing by, but there will be those who will stop by and help us pick the little pieces one by one and who will share their knowledge with us in order to succeed.

During the three years that we have been part of the DeviantArt community, we have met so many friendly, nice and kind artists, crafters, writers, plush makers and others who were always ready to help us.  Although we cannot thank them enough for all their support we have decided to follow their example and do a little something for someone else. Therefore, we decided to mention/feature each month some of my fellow artists and crafters and their contests or commission journals.

I’ll start by featuring the people I know and continue with new random ones.  I know it’s not much but this is my way of saying: Thank you!

We will start with

ASMiniatureStudio

There’s not really much to say, I’m a mum of two wonderful children as well as being Queen of the Nerds.

I paint miniatures for a living, I have a DeathWatch Space marine Army with Grey Knights for allies as well as the Cult of Slaanesh (I know they don’t exist anymore) I also have an Inquisitorial Retinue which is basically filled with other Imperial models I love.

I’ll happily take commission jobs just leave me a message of my deviantart page or send me an email at Aliasmos1705@hotmail.co.uk.

In my spare time I actually write, it can be anything from Dragon Age fanfiction to the supernatural/paranormal story called ”The Tale of the Fallen Prophet”. I also write army list and other random things that come to my head.

Commission: Jack Skellington (The Nightmare Before Christmas)

This is a character I had been wanting to make for a long time and a character my sister insisted that  I should make. However, I felt a bit intimidated due to the fact  there are official merchandise on the market for half the price I would charge and more accurately made.   Finally, someone requested a commission of Jack Skellington and I couldn’t be more happier for that.

This is a non-DA commission, so, reference pictures were not provided which caused a bit of trouble since I didn’t have enough time to carefully search for good reference pictures.   I used a figure for reference but I’m not sure how accurate it was.  After I was done making the doll I took some time to find a picture for the side-by-side  and I found much better ones. :(

Anyway, I’m happy how it turned out but I have to admit that the pattern needs a few things to improve.

Robin Hood (1973)

After so many months of feeling uninspired it popped in my head the idea of making a Fox-y Robin Hood from Disney’s 1973 film.

So, I went online in search of a fox pattern since I can’t make my own patterns, luckily I found one.  Then my next challenge was making his shirt which I had to improvise as I went along. His hat was going to be from a newborn hat pattern that I found for free but for some reason the top was looking round and I didn’t like how it looked.  Then I remembered seeing another hat pattern of which some people complained about the pointy top, so, I thought that would make a perfect hat for my Fox-y Robin.  I began with that pattern and worked till the desire length. So far, I was very pleased with how my Robin was turning out.

He measures 9 inches with his hat and 8 1/2 inch without it.  I used Red Heart Super Saver’s Carrot, Spring Green, White and Gold.

Now, I have my own Fox-y Robin to add to my collection! :D
