DOG COMMISSIONS OPEN! 

i’ve got to take my sewing machine in to get tuned up, so i won’t be able to sew much this week. on top of that i think i might have missed my warrantee by a month so it might cost a ton, so i figured now would be a good time to offer these! i’ve still got my old sewing machine, so i’ll (try to) get as much done on my current commissions as i can in the mean time, but these will fill the cracks since they’re just hand sewing. 

i’m going to open up about 5 slots, maybe more depending on difficulty. they will be $50-$70 each, and are about 2 inches tall.

i require payment up front through paypal, and i need photo references of what you want. i’m only taking dog commissions, which means no cats (for now), no licensed characters, no OC’s unless it’s literally just a regular dog (no wacky hair or colors or costumes or different eyes or w/e). there are a couple other things i may not be able to do because of the limitations of this style, including

  • some long haired dogs
  • small light spots on dark fur
  • curly hair 
  • anything other than black beady eyes

but totally show me pictures anyways and we can probably figure something out! 

turnaround time will be within a month at the latest if i don’t get yours done before my sewing machine gets back/if i have to order a color i don’t already have. otherwise probably a week :>

also, i work very fast on these, i usually will finish one in one sitting, so there’s not much room for WIP’s and edits. so make sure you tell me everything important before i start so i don’t miss anything!

email me at channing@sewgoodsplush.com if you are interested!! and check back to the original post if you’re seeing this as a reblog. i will edit/delete the post when i’m full up. 

Oh my gooosshhh, these are precious!

Had a really nice time at Megaplex this weekend. Got to see some old friends, and make some new ones! I did not do as well as I was hoping in the Artist Alley, but did make some connections and hopefully got some interest in custom sculptures. Overall the convention was great, with generally friendly con goers, and of course lots of fun fursuiters. ;) A HUGE thank you to anyone who stopped by my table yesterday!

My one and only complaint was how the Artist Alley was run. I have been to Megaplex for the past four years, and every year I hope they will work on fixing up the AA, but it never seems to happen. It was very disorganized, and had absolutely no staff moderation that I saw. The tables are first come first serve, but are supposed to be used for artists only. However during my time in the AA, I witnessed multiple people using the tables to just hang out at and generally take up space with no intention to sell art. Maybe this doesn’t seem so terrible, except that there was very limited space as it was, and I saw many occasions where an actual artist was trying to find space to set up but were unable to due to the amount of other people just hanging around. Also the generally rude and inconsiderate behavior of several individuals was very off putting. For the most part the artists I shared space with were very lovely, so a little bit of staff intervention for the rude individuals would have made it a much nicer experience.

Also, why, why why do they continue to use round tables instead of traditional rectangular ones?? Those tables are terrible for setting up displays and being able to be seen by potential customers. I have heard complaints about the tables every year I go, but still I continue to find those blasted round tables in the AA every year!

Regardless, I absolutely plan on getting a dealer’s table next year, just to avoid all the stress of the artist alley.

Made for one of the winners of my hybrid design challenge. i absolutely loved this concept and the story behind it so I had to make it! 
Karissa’s story: "My dad had the best hobby of having the most colorful aquarium when I was 10. My dad had so many beautiful fish and other critters, but my absolute favorites were the mandarin goby and the candy cane shrimp for the very reason that they were such close little buddies .For some weird reason I saw this fish as a dragon and gave him his funny little name Dragarin (reason being I was only 10 XD) and then there was little Scampi by his side 24/7"

Wow, wow, wow!

I got bored at work.

Had a blast at Megaplex today! My phone died part way through though, so I didn’t get many photos. :( Just went for fun today, but tomorrow I will be in the Artist Alley selling my sculptures.

Come find me tomorrow and say “Spaniels rule!” To get a small free gift(while supplies last). ;)

I’d like to officially announce my next big project, Karate Dog! It will be a webcomic as well as a print comic once all the art has been completed. More details coming soon. Current priorities are roughing out the first volume and getting a buffer in place.

This looks so dang cute!

How it Works : Skillshare classes allow you to learn at your own pace.  There are no assignment deadlines.  You can watch the videos as time permits and complete the steps as fast or as slow as you want.  There are no formal lectures or evaluations.  However, you are encouraged to post your work-in-progress shots to the student forums for critique and discussion amongst your peers.  I will be overseeing the forums to give my own advice and guidance to students.
What You Get : The class includes over two and a half hours of high quality video footage showing the entire sculpting process.  Topics covered include materials and research, armatures, blocking, refining, detailing, finishing, and painting.  Lifetime access to the class will be provided by Skillshare.  This will include any and all updates and additions I make to this class.
You will also get access to the class forums where you can post questions, get critique, and share tips and ideas.  While this is largely a student-based forum, I will also review the forums regularly to tend to questions and give advice.
Prerequisites : No previous sculpting experience is required, however, I do recommend that students have some sort of artistic background.  Previous knowledge of drawing, anatomy, design, and color are all very helpful.
How Much?  The regular cost of the class is $40 USD.  However, I am running a 50% off promotion that lasts now through the end of August.  This is a thank you to all of the amazing people that have supported me over the years!
Use coupon code “ThankYou” to get lifetime access to my class for a super-low limited price of $20 USD.  Please use the link below to sign up.  I get a MUCH higher cut of the sign up fee if you use the links that I provide vs. signing up through the Skillshare website.
