I don't think you're supposed to post like your store or stuff, but I don't see why you can't post your things.
Not super crazy about the face, it's just not my style, but I can definitely see it appealing to some people. The craftsmanship looks nice, though. What kind of posability? Wireframed or is over a figure?
>>4600777 it has both wire and doll joints, the tail, ears, and wings have wire for posing, and the head, arms, and legs can move. thanks for the critique, this one is the 4th one ive made now and they all have slightly different faces, is there anything in particular you dont like? ill post a couple more to compare
You do some that go even farther into creepy. You've got that ugly/weird/cute thing down, but you could hit another demo with going full on creepy. Like cthulhu- and lamprey-esque faces. May bird faces?
>>4600808 If you try to start selling them, this is a good idea.
>>4600820 here it is, this was my first attempt i did about a month ago, i stopped because i needed to go to the art store to by a tool i needed to proceed and in the meantine started making these fairies, then i just kind kept making them
>>4600821 believe it or not the small sculpy figures take as much time as the large 13" dolls. i kind of steered away from them because of that, but it takes me 2 days to make one, i still need to time it exactly though im not sure how many hours, its here and there throughout 2 days
>>4600854 i use super sculpy firm, from there i have a few random tools such as a sewing needle. small paint brush (believe it or not great for blending seams) a wipeout tool, and a sculpting knife as the primary tools
I get the feeling I just saw this recently, did you already post this on Reddit? I honestly don't now if it was there or tumblr where I've seen these. Possibly both. Weird shit yo. Seems like something /cgl/ would be into as well. Possibly /diy/.
Hey they really do the creepy/cute/ugly thing really well. You have got so talent. I would for sure try to make a buck or two off of this if I was as good as you. Etsy I think is a website you can sell home made stuff on.
OP here, ill link my deviantart page for anyone interested in following things as i make them, i have a link on there for my facebook art page too if you prefer facebook. http://twyliteskyz.deviantart.com/
I've see a bunch of wire framed fantasy plush toys like these. they're all neat af, but I probably wouldn't ever buy one or commission one. not because of the cost but.... For other reasons. I just dont really want one. gj tho
these are really cool OP, do you sell them on etsy or anything? at the risk of ridicule, im telling you now you definitely need to make a tumblr and etsy page for these guys. dont let your potential go to waste, you got something neat here.
OP you should look into making some with less of a solid armature inside and instead a handwire (like the shoulder sitters//Woodbabies at renn faires), your designs look like they'd take well to creating an illusion of alive-ness when moving.
>>4602161 I'm on the same page as you, I like them but I'd never want one in my home. Not because I couldn't afford one, but because they just wouldn't look good inside my house.
I think I'd love these ugly little boogers to death if they were characters in a movie or something, but I'd hate it if their fate was to end up in some secondhand store as some sort of mystery plush waiting to be pawned off of someone else for $2 or end up as a white elephant party gift. There's just too much work put into these for that kind of thing to happen, y'know?
I'm probably giving off mixed messages here, but I guess my point is these are cool and you are cool OP, so I hope you can cater to the people who like them.
Oh my gosh. I looove these! They're adorable. What talent you have, OP! You should definitely definitely sell at Renaissance Festivals. They'd sell like hotcakes! I would love to buy one of your pieces eventually. Guess I'll have to save up and keep stalking your Deviantart!
>>4611409 /toy/ is not a very fast board, most threads died from age/unpopularity before they hit post limit/autosage unless it's a general. It spams the board if you have more than one thread going since it means less space for another thread until something else gets deleted, meanwhile one topic gets two threads.
We also don't have a dedicated archive so finding posts can be hell unless you remember when the thread was made.
Sorry for getting upset since you are new here, after all. Continue on with the gremlin fairies.
>>4616688 i have had a couple people say that, but i still dont know why? is there anything in particular that makes that one cool? i had a friend say they liked the feet. is it the way it sits? or the face itself?
>>4621069 >sigh, ok i admit, im confused and dont know what either of you are saying >>4621069 Third party here, Big Boy Blue is a /tg/ story about a creepy guy who breaks up a couple. It has nothing to do with you, and I think it only got mentioned because it's "creepy", and so are your dolls.
>>4621073 Not to put words in >>4621893's mouth, but I might suggest it's because it looks more "realistic;" the combination of features is a bit more anchored in Earthly, vaguely-mammalian biology, and the face, from that angle at least, looks a bit more bestial, there're no fæ wings. It might just be that it's more "empathetic" because it looks less outright-fantastic and a bit more like a beast you might actually find in a jungle.
>>4622081 i would recomend a feather duster, they actually arent too delicate, the joints were made for that, the only thing i can see being of concern would be dropping in on its face on a tile floor. its a polymer clay so not too brittle but its not plastic either!
hey op not to steal your thunder but i follow someone on flickr who makes similar creatures as you do and ive been interested in a while in trying to make them myself but i have no idea where to start
how do you attach the sculpey head to a plush body? and do you just use stuffed animal patters for the plush body parts? i thought they took forever to make but since you said it just takes 2 days or so to make something that cool i'm thinking maybe i should attempt it
>>4623080 hi there! i will link you to this great tutorial, where it will answer a lot of answers, http://posableartdolls.deviantart.com/art/Armature-to-Art-Doll-Part-1-195752605 i didnt make it but its pretty good :). if you really want to get into doing them and would like someone to get answers from and such you can go to my deviant page and go to my facebook art page, i do go on my deviant page but not nearly as much as facebook! http://twyliteskyz.deviantart.com/
>>4623721 yes i love her work! i saw her on deviantart before and even orders a couple bandanas from her etsy page. at the time she was more into masks and cloth work but its cool that shes makeing more dolls. there is another person that i swore was her but apparently not? i dunno take a look and tell me if you wouldnt think thats her work. http://remjie.com/
i made a new moss fairy, which i named Mossley. but later discovered i shouldve went with Randy Moss. actually in the begining i thought i messed this one up as it was looking like oscar the grouch and more like a mold fairy. but i added on lime gream heavily and it brightend him up and made him presentable again lol
