Archaeopteryx Plush by SilkenCat Archaeopteryx Plush by SilkenCat
This... is the best plush I have ever made. And my first armature plush.

For real. You see, a few days ago, I was looking at the awesome plushies :iconmagnastorm: makes. And I was all depressed because I was like "I'll never make things that good..." The best thing I've ever seen in terms of plushies is her "Creature" plush. Seriously, go check it out. it's amazing... it's... alive...[link]
>_<

I was feeling really sad cos I was like "all I can make is pokemons, I can't even design original creatures"

So I sat down, and vowed to create a creature. Not that I really did. Archaeopteryx actually existed. this is just my own take on it. And I bought armature wire, and this is my very first armature plush ever! It was pretty hard. The pattern was a nightmare. It took 3 whole days of pretty much full-on sewing.

But I just love him so much ;w;

Also, I finally remembered why I started sewing in the first place. It's because I'm poor. And all the stuff I wanted to buy I couldn't afford. So I learned how to make it myself. And I got so uptight about pageviews. But I realised it doesn't freakin matter!

So, I don't even care if not a single person likes this!! Because what you are looking at right now, is not fanart of someone else's characters. It's MY art. My character. My design. and I love this guy ;w;

Rant over...

Wow. I found this while I was looking for a good plush pattern to alter so I could make a raven with a plague doctor mask face and I love this. The most I've ever done for making my own pattern was a Wobbufett.

I hope that you'll be able to share more original works in the future, if you ever feel up to it! :3 I think you've got a lot of talent and skill. I love it when artists take a step back from fan art. As much as we a ll love fan art, there's no denying that original works really showcase the imagination.

This...this little guy. I think he's dun gone and stolen my heart.

He looks so superbly made, and just... his little squiggly smile, and his poseable wings, and what looks to be unbelievable softness... This is why I love it when people make the things they love most for themselves. Awesome things like this happen. Keep it up :heart:

That's freaking amazing. I have a hard enough time getting a robot pattern to work the way I want it to without having to worry about wires and stuff. Great job on your first armature plush! I'm going to add you to my watch list 'cause wow. Just wow.
