Firecat mini by Bladespark
Firecat mini
This is another mini I painted years ago and just now got a decent photo of.  Honestly the whole body (and face) are kind of crap and I want to re-paint them, but I do still like how the wings came out.

This is also a flex tail, though of course big fat tails like this flex a little less than thinner ones.

Another example of my newer outdoor foot pattern, though the red doesn't photograph well.

All foam construction, acrylic eyes, cast silicone nose by DVC, resin teeth by me.

There will be a full suit, around the end of the month, probably.

(So yes, I am still sewing, I am just so incredibly burnt out right now that it's hard to work up any enthusiasm for it.)

Hey there folks!  You may notice I've been uploading a lot of Windstone Edition sculptures that I've painted.  I happen to have one gryphon left still unpainted, and I don't have any great ideas for how to paint it, so I thought I'd ask for some input.

Basically, I am looking for Gryphon characters who would like to have their gryphon painted onto a statue.  (The same statue as the kingfisher/flame point gryphon I just uploaded.)

There are two ways to take part, if you have a gryphon character and you want to see it painted.

A. Just commission me.  Very easy!  I will buy you an all-new shiny statue with the eye color of your choice and everything.  It costs $150, and I'll throw in free shipping inside the USA.  (Species other than gryphons available, deals and discounts also available.  Cat-footed "kittygriff" gryphons available priced at just $75.)

B. Put your idea in to be chosen.  This costs no money at all, but it comes with three rules you have to agree to.

1. I own the statue itself, and I reserve the right to keep it, sell it on ebay, whatever.  You will still own your *character*, of course, and you also have reposting rights to any photos I take of the statue, so you can feel free to upload them here or anywhere else, so long as you give proper credit to me for the paint job and to Windstone Editions for the sculpture.

2. I'll only be picking one gryphon design for this, since I only have one spare gryphon statue sitting around.  I'm going to pick based on how much fun I think it'll be to paint, and how good it will look on the statue, so judging is entirely by me, and will be entirely arbitrary.

3. Your character design may be modified slightly to fit the statue I have/my painting methods.  In particular, the statue has green eyes.  They're already glued into the statue, and it's way too much trouble (and risks breaking it) to try to pry them out.  I realize that most of your characters will probably not have green eyes, but that's what I've got to work with, so that's what's going to happen.

To participate, just drop me a comment/note with a link to your character.  Or, if you want to commission me rather than taking your chances on getting selected, let me know through a comment or PM and we can work out the details.

I make fuzzy things. Mostly plushes these days, but also whatever else I happen to feel like trying my hand at. I am always open for commissions, just drop me an e-mail to spark.costumes@gmail.com

You can find more about my work including commissions policies and prices, a larger gallery, and lots of other stuff at my website, www.sparkcostumes.com

If you've commissioned me, you'll find your project listed on my project list here: bladespark.livejournal.com/122…

This is my full time job, not my hobby. So I don't take requests, rarely do trades, don't accept points, don't give away my patterns, etc. I have to pay the rent somehow.

A few more things:

If you say "I want it" I am going to try and sell it to you. :D Selling my stuff is how I make a living. So if you don't want a sales pitch, you might consider using "that's really pretty" as a compliment, rather than "I want".

If you make crude or perverted comments about any of my work, *even* if those comments are about how other people would do perverse things with it, your comments will be removed. I don't want to hear about what you would do, I don't want t hear about how you're the only clean minded one and what everyone *else* would do either. If you're thinking it, *you* are the pervert.

If you make rude comments about my pricing, I'll make snarky replies. See above about this being my full time job. My prices are what they need to be for me to make a (not very good) living at this.

And please don't tell me how I should run my business. I don't need to know what you think I should make, how you think I should price things, or how you think I should do *anything*. Odds are you don't make a full time living making plushes, so you're hardly a qualified expert on how I should go about it. If you think that makes me some kind of snob, I suggest you consider how you felt the last time somebody who didn't know what the hell they were talking about tried to give you advice.

Don't let the above scare you off, I am a very friendly person. I just have a few little pet peeves. :D

How much would a 10 inch [Or smaller, whichever works best] plushie of this pony:  prntscr.com/5dujf9 cost?

That pony is close to impossible to make as a plush.  I could do a VERY simplified version for $200, but it wouldn't have all that detail.

May I ask if your plushie commissions are open? And if they are, how much would one cost?

They're, well... sorta open, but my project list is so huge right now that any but the smallest of new projects will take something like a year to be finished.  I know most people don't want to wait that long.

It was nice to meet you at BronyCon!  My husband loves his Lunabat and Flutterbat.  We look forward to seeing what new things you have in store for next year :)
