This is my first critique, sorry if it sucks. I think, overall, the show-accuracy of this is probably the closest I've ever seen. She's...

Yup, lingering. Getting lots of little jobs and such done, with not much time for plushies in between.

BUT I will eventually be selling patterns with walkthroughs in my etsy shop. I was considering using Patreon for it, but I don't want the pressure, tbh. Not for plushies. Too much pressure for me. Too big. Too thicc.

All patterns and walkthroughs will be geared towards hand sewing and easy-access tools, so it won't be specialist. Just nice, shapely, workable things. More when I get to that stage!

That's all for now, folks! Hope you're all doing okay!
TNC - Kuroi custom doll
Kuroi doll is finally done! Commission for :iconxcookie-cutterx: to celebrate the launch of book 2 of The Naiad Chronicles. Thank you!

Kuroi is the king. A well-meaning, pie obsessed king.

He's about 18" tall (I think, I didn't actually measure him???) and is pretty posable. Great levels of glam can be achieved. His clothes are removable, his shoes laced and his fingers wired so he can hold things. Clutch them to his chest (he has chest embroidery too, but I forgot to photograph it... I'm so scatterbrained ATM). He can stand independently, and his wings are wired for poses. ❤️

More pics on tumblr and Instagram! @dotdollplushies for both.

Please do not repost or reupload! Commissions are currently closed, but I will open for dolls later once I've done a few more samples.
Kuroi is from The Naiad Chronicles, which was made by me. He's mine. Plz do not purloin.

As I come to the end of this commission batch (two more dolls to make) I think it might be time to talk about upcoming plans and ask for your opinions, if you have moments to spare.

I'm thinking of making and selling patterns with tutorials. Two ways - one on etsy, which would be patterns and basic walkthrough, and another on Patreon, where there would be more detailed walkthroughs, classes, extra patterns for learning, etc etc. So I'd like to use Patreon as a kind of classroom, geared more towards hand-sewing and such. But the patterns would still be full on patterns, not basic ginger-bread style cutouts.

People on Patreon could vote for what comes next, or what technique they would like to learn. I'd also discuss fabrics, stylisation, etc.

This also helps me write the long-in-progress plush book. I've seen many reviews online for easier books with easier projects, but people complaining they're still too hard. I suspect it's just that the instructions aren't clear, so using these patterns as a practice ground will be very helpful.

Classes would also be progressive, so we'd start with something a little simpler (a basic cat, maybe) and move further up into higher detail as we go.

I would also use Patreon for my book stuff. I have plans for illustrated books like Silver Jill, but I would also like to have a shot at colouring books (dragerrrrns) and short stories. So plushies, art and writing would all feature. Also, tutorials in art and watercolour, digital, etc?

For those who have an interest in learning various crafts Patreon would have a wide array, and I hope the need to satisfy backers would help keep my ass in gear. For those who want plush patterns but don't need the assistance, they would be available on etsy. Routine updates would be available via tumblr and Instagram as presently they are, but near daily updates and sneak peeks would be shared on Patreon.

I will NOT be stopping any present format to push folks to Patreon. Patreon would just be an extra for those that like it.

I'm not 100% decided on plans, and this won't be happening until the new year, so feel free to share pointers or opinions if you have any.
With the hardback proof for Messenger in and checked, I'm now happy to start offering them out! Anyone who wants one (or one of Vision) please drop me a private message and I can send out invoices.

Including shipping, book with signature and "sticker of authenticity" is £35, and if you would also like a watercolour sketch again in the front, that will be £65 in total. Let me know who you would like!

Remember, these are lovely quality hardbacks, first edition, limited to fifty copies. I'm not sure when / if ever hardbacks will be on offer again.

Paperbacks and kindle versions are available on Amazon, as always ;D quite a few people have been ploughing through it in the Lending Library, so a few reviews should come in all EEEEEEE.
Inktober 2016 on Instagram
Yup, I'm doing inktober. Dragons + Jake Parker's prompts, mostly in fine liner and watercolours but some brush pen too. You can find them on my Instagram!

@dotdollplushies

Some are random dragons, some will be my own characters, and some are fan arts ❤️

Please do not re-upload without permission, these works are on my tumblr and Twitter, you can share from there.

I'm twenty seven, I live in Scotland (though I'm originally from Yorkshire) and have absolutely no social life whatsoever. I love dogs, dragons and dinosaurs and, being british, tea. Can't get enough of tea.

PLUSH COMMISSIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
I am taking time off from plush making to try and finish my novel series, The Naiad Chronicles.
Requests for plush quotes will probably be ignored during this time. Sorry.

Kindle and paperback versions of The Naiad Chronicles - Vision are now available on amazon: www.amazon.com/Naiad-Chronicle…
Or through my createspace estore: www.createspace.com/5631220

I do have an etsy shop, which will intermittently trickle over new things:
