Hi! I've been posting around a little now, but never properly introduced myself (or my projects). I started crocheting at the beginning of 2009, and discovered amigurumi around April of that year. I started free-handing my projects around that October, and haven't looked back since.  Grin Here are some of the things that I'm most proud of.

This is my very first free-handed project! And although I really want to remake a better one, I still love him and get compliments when I take him to conventions. His name is Burupya, and he's the head-pet from the manga/anime 07-GHOST.

I made this for my dad's birthday in January 2010 because he loves bald eagles. I'm in the process of making another eagle, this time a bit more realistic (and about double the size of this one).

I made this fennec fox for my friend's birthday at the end of March last year (And she forbade me from making her something for this year until she can repay me. XD)

This one is one of my favorites! (As can be seen by his appearance in my avatar Cheesy) He's also the last amigurumi that I crocheted using continuous rounds. With few exceptions, everything I make now is done in joined rounds. Anyway, this is a Kitty Kat, one of the monsters you can get in the video game Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

I made this guy sometime in the fall last year. He's three feet long and slightly posable. He's also a Dragonair, the first of many Pokemon I hope to make.

This was my second attempt at making a human doll. I made it for a Secret Santa on deviantART, and he's supposed to be the original character of the girl I got. I tried shaping the face to make it seem more realistic, but it ended up looking like an alien head.  Undecided

I actually started this doll way before the Secret Santa doll, and he's been mostly finished since last May. He just sat, bald, on my desk for nearly a year because I wasn't sure how to do the hair and I didn't want to mess it up. But when I had to do the Secret Santa, I was on a time crunch and just winged it. I liked the result, and used the same method on this doll. His name is Teito, and he's the main character of 07-GHOST (the same series that the pink bunny dragon thing is from).

And last but not least is a Shadow Heartless from the video game Kingdom Hearts. I made it for another friend's birthday, and he really liked it. So much, in fact, that he commissioned me to make a Sora doll (the main character from Kingdom Hearts)! And Sora should be done sometime in the next few weeks, so I'll post those pictures soon. Smiley

Everything here was made free hand without a pattern (but I did keep notes while making most of the Heartless, if anyone's interested). It's also all either crocheted or embroidered with acrylic yarn (with the occasional bit of embroidery floss), as I've given myself the challenge of "all yarn or go home!" Using felt, paint, or other materials is considered "cheating" in this challenge.   Wink (I allow embroidery floss though because technically you can still crochet with it.)

Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoyed my work. Grin

Wow, you have mad shaping skills! I'm deeply in awe! All your creations are amazing, especially the humans and the Shadow. Seeing your stuff makes me love crochet even more!
This rocks!

Thank you guys so much!  Grin Hearing comments like that is part of the reason why I love making amigurumi, lol.

And SharaStar, I'm planning on remaking Burupya (the pink winged bunny thing) in the next few months. I've gotten in the habit of keeping track of the pattern while I'm making things now, and I'd be happy to share the pattern with you when I'm done. Smiley

Wow! I had to look up who the manga/anime characters were, but they're all super!

I love the Heartless you made! Now I want to make one, lol. One more project to add to my ever growing list of things I want to crochet =D

Great job on all of them!
