Ack so cool. I'd better not tell my guild about this or they'll be asking me to make them their toons. I have to say it though, wish this was a Tauren *For the Horde!* Other than a slight difference in opinion on Faction choice... this totally rocks! In all seriousness you've done a great job, I'm totally inspired Cheesy

Oh, I forgot to ask a question: have you any tips on painting felt? I just used acrylics and a brush, but it seems to fluff an awful lot. Yours look so crisp and clean - how do you do it? XD


My boyfriend is actually the one who does all the painting, but I asked him and here's what he said:

He used a 00Round brush (a crap one from a $5 pack at Hobby Lobby) and said to make tiny back and forth strokes on the felt.  It is fuzzy, but the back and forth movement will help to push down some of the fuzz.
For a nice, bold line (not necessarily thick, just bold) put A LOT of paint on the brush and make short lines.  Load up paint, brush a tiny section, load up paint again, brush a tiny section and so on.  This will help the felt absorb some of the paint and look darker.

My boyfriend looked at your picture and said if you want the lines darker, just put more paint on.  The lines themselves are actually really clean, you just can't see them as well as you should because there is physically not enough paint.  Since the felt takes up so much paint, it takes much more than you would think in order to make an impression.

Hope that helped!

My first thought after reading this post-
"Putting the 'craft' back in World of Warcraft!"
..then...
"More like World of WoW crafts!"
 (so cheesy, I know...)

Great work though, keep it up!  Cheesy

That's excellent, thanks a lot Smiley I'll give a go on the next one I make (watch this space!)
Thanks for the ongoing inspiration!

Ditto! I love my Taurens! I may just need to figure out how to make some Hordies. I play a Tauren Hunter (and a Druid) and the FH PLays a Tauren Druid and a Troll Rogue. Those could be lots of fun to try out.

Your little Shammie Doll is A-freaking-dorable tho! I love WarCraft(s). *giggles* I love all the little details and her tail looks great. Can't wait to see your Nelf!
