So for my "story" I decided to show some plushies and talk about my progress. I started on deviantart drawing neopets and slowly moved my way into crafting and now I've found something I really enjoy.
I specifically am looking at Espeon plushies since that's my favorite pokemon and it's something I just keep coming back to.
This was one of my first plushies I made and I thought it was downright adorable. But like most things, within a few days I thought I could improve it. So my second mini espeon came next.
This was a huge improvement. Cute standing pose, better formed head, better eyes. I thought it was awesome, but looking back on it, I'm cringing at using acrylic paint to paint eyes on.
My third espeon was a huge improvement. It got a new pattern, much nicer sewn on eyes, a real gem, super cute face in my opinion. I wasn't happy with the way the head was connected, but you can really see the improvement so I was proud.
Again I think this was another huge leap transitioning into minky and embroidered eyes. This is the same pattern as the last one, it's amazing how different something can look with just more practice and better materials.
And finally my most recent espeon. Though I don't like these photos (I was short on time to get good ones) you can, again, see the improvement. This one has a flocked safety nose, I improved the embroidery for the eye, and I made a new pattern which I think is cuter again. It also has thread sculpted toes which no other espeons had. This was made pretty close after the last espeon, but I'm really happy to see the improvement even in such a short time.
I'm so excited with where I will go from here and hopefully my next espeon will blow even this one out of the water
Though it's hard to imagine now getting even better! And exciting too
