Anonymous asked: Do you know/have any favorite plush-making tumblrs? I looooove plushes, even just photos and yours are so wonderful and inspiring, I was wondering if you knew more blogs like yours?
oh anon, cries into hands, i am SO TERRIBLE at networking and stuff like that. i can think of like… two or three plush artists off the top of my head and i only know the tumblr of one of them. idk why i’m so bad at this, maybe in the back of my mind i’m kind of like “well, i’ve reached a point in my plush making that i like what i do, now i need to get that way with my art” and then i just follow a million drawing-type art blogs. because really, when it comes to drawing well i’m like… question marks flying out of my head. BUT THAT’S A TERRIBLE WAY TO BE i really need to follow more plush blogs. so i kind of poked around, and here are all the blogs that i found that i do look at from time to time and go “wow dang it” but then i don’t remember who they are or anything. (a lot of them are MLP blogs)
thehauntedneedle (otherwise known as babylondonstar) (her plush are crazy inspiring cries into hands some more)
xsystemcrafts (they like wartortles too high five!)
(i’m just gonna edit this as i think of people b/c I KNOW I FORGOT SO MANY PEOPLE ;__;)
and there’s one blog in particular that i can’t for the life of me remember what it is, but i know she makes way rad like… people plush, and they’re rather large, and they’ve got kind of long noodly arms and legs so if you KNOW WHO I’M TLAKING ABOUT LET ME KNOW.
and i know there are SO MANY plush artists i’m leaving out, probably a lot of which i’ve TALKED TO AT LENGTH BEFORE keeps crying into hands so like… let me know of any other plush blogs you know of?? or if you are a plush blog??
i think one other reason why i don’t follow a lot of them is that there aren’t a lot of solid plush blogs. i’ve noticed a lot of plush artists just have one blog for everything (which is totally cool keep doing your thing) but a lot of times i like following just art blogs more, especially when i’m like “I LOVE YOUR STUFF” but then the stuff they reblog is stuff i don’t like so i just tell myself i’ll check up on their art tag every once in a while and i forget forever or something. and then i end up following more 2D type art blogs because there are a lot more of those than there are plush blogs.
so long story short:
- check out those guys they are great
- if you are a plush blog or know any other good ones let me know!
- i wish THERE WAS AN OFFICIAL PLUSH TAG like there is an illustration tag like wow how nice would that be?
- especially let me know of any *just* plush blogs you might know of, or link me to the plush tag on your/their blog, sometimes those are hard to find cries
- i like you all ur gr8.
actually i think i’m eventually going to stick this list as a page on my blog and just keep adding to it, partly to help myself keep track of plush artists and also for everyone else’s reference (of course)
