Chinese New Year Little Red Lion Plush

Happy Chinese New Year! Here is a little red Lion Dance plush I was commissioned to make last year that I never shared 🙂

The pattern was based on the previous Lions that I made only smaller. The plush is roughly 20cm long made from high quality fleece with felt details and embroidery.

The commissioner requested that the family name on the belly (not shown).
The name is machine cut from professional quality vinyl (vivid flex heat transfer vinyl) in black on white jersey material.

Other elements of the designs include:
– Silver faux leather Mirror on the forehead
– Pom pom nose details
– Plasticard re-enforced feet for balance and stability
– Black felt “fringe” on the body and legs.

 


Bonus Inktober 2016 Time lapse Video !

Bonus Inktober 2016 Time lapse Video!

I wasn’t able to get this video posted before the end of Oct but I thought I would still share it. Learning from my first video – the camera is moved to my left side so the drawing isn’t covered by my hand and I’ve tried to have more light. Nearly all of my inktober drawing were done after I finished everything else for the day meaning they were done often late into the night.

The video has been sped up 16x to show a little over half and hour of inking. My tools for all of my inktober drawings-Castell XF 0.7 mechanical pencil, Mircon pens on toned paper and A3 LED light pad.

I hope to share more process videos in the future and perhaps some tutorials as well.

 


Fallout Jumpsuit Vault 111 Costume

A friend of mine’s daughter wrote me in her best handwriting to asking if I would make her a Fallout Jumpsuit for her to wear to PAX Aus this past weekend. I of course excitedly agreed!

Her family provided the blue coveralls and I quickly set to work to transform it into a 111 jumpsuit. After sewing down the collar, some heat transfer vinyl and a yellow karate belt it was ready set out into the wasteland.

 


Custom Bahamut Dragon Plush from FF7

This custom designed Bahamut plush dragon from Final Fantasy 7 is probably one of the most complicated plush toys I have made so far.

The plush is made from fleece and felt and stands at only 8 inch tall – roughly 12-13 inches tall including the wings and spikes.
He has glittery gold felt eyes and the claws are silvery grey. The wings are fully wired and pose-able and help the plush stand on its own. All the embroidery details have been done freehand by machine.

 


The Storyteller Ink Drawing

The Storyteller: She is a muse, a creator and destroyer, she is holds galaxies. Her heart is restless, her mind is open.

I created this original ink drawing last week as a special birthday gift to my wonderfully encouraging and talented friend Ellen.

The Wishing Cake – Short Comic Folktale

wishingcake_01

This is a short folktale I wrote while thinking about my birthday later this month and the rituals of birthday cakes.

I drew and inked the comic by hand as practice to kick off #Inktober2016. I only added the text digitally in photoshop. I have a few stories underway that I hope I will have time to work on and share soon.

 

 


Alien Xenomorph Plush Toy

My custom designed small but scary Alien Xenomorph plush.
This tiny terror stands at a compact 8 inches (approx) tall made from soft black fleece with grey embroidered jersey insert details.
Other details to the design include black felt back and tail spikes, back tubes and a white felt teeth.
Crafted from my own unique pattern from my own concept.

*Fun Fact: All of the domain names for “Beautiful Monsters” were held but not used by the studio that made Aliens when I first started my website which is why it is call “My Beautiful Monsters”.

 


Werewolf Dipper Pines Plush Toy

I forgot to share this plushie commission from a few months back – Werewolf Dipper Pines.

He joined his sister, the Unicorn Mable Pines plush in his new home in May.

Inspired by the Gravity Falls character Dipper Pines this is a custom designed werewolf plush.

The completed plush stands roughly 6 inches tall (8-10 inches long to including his tail).

The plush includes the characters birthmark, hand-embroidered on his forehead under his hair.

He has machine embroidered appliqué eyes and felt claws.

Made from dark brown Minky fleece he is small but cuddly.

 

 


Raven Hatchling Plush Toys

I made 2 new plush Raven Hatchlings to take to OZ ComicCon last weekend.  Happily both Poe and Cog found loving new homes before lunch on the first day!

Each Raven is roughly 15 cm tall (6 inches) made from soft grey and black fleece. They have felt “beards” and eye surrounds.  The polyfil stuffing makes them very plump and squeezable.

Both have name tags with hand-cut leather and bead charms.

Anyone interested in having a Raven of their own can contact me through my Esty shop.

I will be listing more unique handmade plush toys and prints in my shop in the next few weeks.


Thank you OZ ComicCon
