It's been a long, long break and I'm so glad to be back at it. Out of all the creative pursuits I have tried my hand at, plushing feels the most natural to me. Already I have plenty of ideas for new plushies, challenging and fun and I've learned many things about myself in my absence that I feel will lead to me being better at it. When I made the original four gnomes I struggled with the small size and I was sure I'd never make another.. then I went and made one and it felt relatively easy. There is also a 360 spinning interactive photo of it on my tumblr www.tumblr.com/blog/jevist
..I don't think I can embed them anywhere in dA unfortunately.
On a slightly disappointing note, after the long absence I noticed a distinct change in the Plushies category while browsing. It appears to be almost all fan art now, ponies and anime characters mostly. There are clearly some very talented and creative people creating some of these fan art plushies but surely original plushies should have their own gallery.
