1  Dragon Age 2 Anders Sackboy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by queenofcrows on: April 30, 2014 06:45:28 PM
A while ago someone asked me to make Anders from DA2. I have a confession to make, I hated that game and I really hated what they did to Anders' character in it. I'm still glad I got the chance to make the doll, though, because he looks a lot cuter and a lot less jaded and possessed!

Yarn selection being what it is around here, I combined aspects and colors from both his outfits.

A friend of mine really likes Anders from Dragon Age: Awakening, and got this for herself as a birthday present. There are some changes I'd make if I made him again, but he was still fun.

I don't bother putting zippers into 95% of my sackboy characters because their costumes are so involved that they'd get in the way and you wouldn't be able to see them in any case, ha ha.

3  Castiel and Dean Winchester minis! (Supernatural) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by queenofcrows on: February 18, 2014 04:56:13 PM
I did these as a trade for a friend, since she's being super nice and sending me some kitchen stuff. I hope she likes them! :3 They're my first shot at characters from Supernatural.

He looks awesome! That hair is amazing, I love how it turned out!

Re: the feet, try this technique that I hit upon when having the same problem: use a pet slicker to pull apart some acrylic yarn into acrylic "roving." Then use a felting needle to gently felt bits of it into the tops of the feet. It's a MUCH more subtle look than 100% brushed and definitely does not look like worms, LOL.

If you used wool yarn, use wool roving/shredded yarn. Acrylic does not like wool and wool does not like acrylic, but they both felt pretty readily with their own kind. I use felting needles with acrylic + acrylic, and acrylic + shredded acrylic all the time and it works great!

I did this for the "stubble" on my CLU 2.0 doll from TRON: Legacy:

(More angles and stuff here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/queenofcrows/clu-20)

I also did it for the stubble and chest pelt of this doll of Varric, from Dragon Age 2

(Sorry for the big pics, I don't wanna threadjack! The detail is just hard to see in smaller ones. I think it might give you the look you're going for, though, fuzzy but not wormy.)

Very nice! I love all the details - sometime the detail can overwhelm the simple faces in amigurumi, but you've got it just right. What size are they?

Thank you so much! I kept wondering if I'd left out too much detail, but then decided that adding anything else would just overwhelm things. As you say, I planned to keep the faces very simple (my sketches had mouths, but I decided against them), so I didn't want things to get overly complex in comparison.

Jowan is 4.5" from base to the top of his hair, and Zevran is just a smidge over 9". I did take some purely gratuitous scale shots for people, too; the Ezio vinyl in the first is about 9".

Apart from some cuttlefish as presents, these are the first two amis I've completed in years! I've got several other characters in progress, as well. :3

Zev's about 9" tall, and Jowan's about 4.5".

Zevran Arainai:

Jowan Amell:

I used felting needles on Jowan's hair. I've never tried them before and I'm really happy with the results!
