1  houndstooth panda bear! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by deruku on: March 02, 2012 03:53:35 PM
Last summer I lost a fox plushie that I've had since my youth, and it's been strangely hard to recover from the loss. I decided finally that I had to move on...and get another plushie. None of the stores had anything that felt right, so I ended up making my own. Smiley

I used this tutorial http://www.howjoyful.com/2010/05/howjoyful-bear-tutorial-and-pattern/ which can be really vague at times, but I managed to finish the bear without having to rip too many seams.  Cheesy

2  red fox mask WIP need opinions! in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by deruku on: December 10, 2010 06:13:55 PM
I was invited to a masquerade for New Years Eve, and I was totally inspired. I spend a few weeks mulling over what I was going to do, then collected the supplies. First, even though I could have easily bought a premade mask at Michaels, none of them really fit my face like I wanted them to. So I bought some of that plaster gauze stuff and made a custom mask.

This is me making fun of the stereotypical Myspace picture.

It took me a while to decide if I would paint a design on it, or if I would cover it with fabric, then glue sequins on. Since the plaster didn't end up very smooth, I opted to cover the whole think with a fleece fabric, and tonight I started gluing on sequins. This is about an hours worth of gluing. I had to stop because the fumes were making me dizzy (and high...).

Anyway, my original plan was to cover the entire thing with sequins. However, I don't think it looks half bad with some of the fleece showing, and now I'm wondering if it would be too gaudy if I covered it all with sequins. Opinions? Ideas? I'd love to hear anything!

3  Expressions of Muffin -- I need -your- help! in Needlework: Completed Projects by deruku on: June 30, 2009 09:08:47 AM

Backstory: Once upon a time, I painted a sad muffin (http://deruku.deviantart.com/art/Sad-Muffin-34716043). My cousin liked it so much that he printed it out on a iron-on transfer and put it on a shirt (all by himself! I was so proud). Even after a couple years it's still one of his favorite shirts. Lately he's been going through a rough time, so I figured it was time for the muffin to get some different expressions. Which led to this:

Left to right: happy muffin, zombie muffin, cupcake muffin, cat muffin, ninja muffin, dumbfounded muffin, pirate muffin, ecstatic muffin. There is room for one more, who was going to be cowboy muffin, but I decided I wasn't really feeling it. Anyone have any ideas on what the last one can be? My roommate suggested stud muffin, which is hilarious, though I'm not sure how I could make that work.

Also, do you think I should have words next to each muffin saying what they are? I have an intense dislike for embroidering words, so if you do think I should have words, you should also tell me a quick way of getting them on there. Wink (I was seriously thinking of just taking a sharpie to it. This is going to be a wall hanging, so it's not like it'll be washed ever. But a sharpie might look messy. Who knows.)

4  my latest digital paintings! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by deruku on: September 28, 2008 06:14:56 AM
Hello all, I thought I might share with you my two latest digital paintings, done in Photoshop. There's certainly a theme developing in my artwork, involving women in corsets and nature. I like it.

Any comments or questions would be greatly appreciated! <3

5  Jack Sparrow present in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by deruku on: December 18, 2006 11:38:16 AM
My boyfriend is in love with Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp in general), so last night I drew up a suggestive picture for him. In the reference picture he was holding a gun, but I took it out to make it look like he was checking someone out.

While I consider the painting itself done, I'll happily accept any critiques on the layout, dialogue, or any of that other stuff. I'm not quite satisfied with how the wording on the side looks.

What do you think? Critiques welcome. Smiley
