Commissions (Round 1) CLOSED!

commission status: CLOSED (check back for next round)
art trades: CLOSED




EDIT on 29/06/15 First round is now closed! There are some pretty awesome ones this summer (all the things that I love) :love: Stay tuned for news on the next commission rounds.  People will still be able to commission adopt-a-project stuff, but it'll have to be scheduled for a later date when I open new slots. Thanks for understanding! :heart:


For this summer, commissions will be opening in 3 stages:

1) Adopt-a-project are now OPEN
Information can be found here: pheleon.jlauportfolio.com/2013…
I've added a good 40 new projects, so have a look and see if there's anything you'd like to adopt!
If you're new to the system, please read all the info and feel free to ask me any questions here on DA or by emailing pheleon(at)gmail(dot)com.

:star: IMPORTANT NOTES:
:bulletblue: Payment in half or full must be sent by June 29th 2015. I'm going back to Montreal this upcoming weekend, so I'll be able to pick up all the supplies needed to complete the projects. I won't be accepting any projects after that date because I probably won't have access to the materials! ^^;  
:bulletred: Orders are first pay, first served. I don't anticipate getting too many requests since this is on short notice, but in case I do, I might not be able to accept everything.
:bulletblue: These projects will be worked on throughout the month of July.


2) Mini-plush Keychains Special are TBA
These will only apply for in-person pickup at Toronto Japanese Matsuri.  I'm still working out the details. Expect an update around the beginning of July.

3) Slots for all projects will be in mid-august
I finish school on august 14th and I'm moving back home for around 3 weeks before heading out for my 4-month internship.  I'll be able to take on a few commissions during this time. Slots may be very limited. Details are still being planned, so please don't send any inquiries for the moment.


That's it for now! Oh and as a heads-up, it's my midterm week at the moment, so if I don't respond to an email right away, I'm probably just caught up with schoolwork. I'll try my best to be prompt with my replies. :XD:

FAQ

If I don't answer your question, it's probably because it's in this FAQ, so please read!

What do you use to make the hair?
So far, I mainly use felt.

How do you do it?
I cut a myriad of pieces of felt, and hot glue them onto the head. I have techniques to create volume; you can read the guide here: www.jlauportfolio.com/hairtuto…

Are the eyes hand painted?
Yes! See my tutorial for more info.

Do you make your own patterns?
Indeed I do, and always have. I can't seem to follow someone else's blueprints. My pattern-making tutorial can be found here: pheleon.deviantart.com/art/How…

Can you post a plushie pattern?
I have one here: fav.me/d1vmo2q .

Can you post a different plushie pattern?
Sorry, but no. Patterns are a plushmaker's lineart.

What material do you use for the body of the plushie?
Mostly, I use lycra because it's smooth the paint on. However, I also use craft velour and bucksuede on the occasion.

How can your plushies free-stand?
The ones who can are generally the proportional ones. Although, the main factor is that the body parts are aligned with their center of gravity; something as small as the foot being too forward may disable them from keeping balance.

How long does it take you to complete a plush?
It depends. If I really work hard, I can complete 2~3 10" plushies in a day. (but that's when I'm constantly working, and the design isn't that complex)

Are you open for commissions?
Check my journal for updates.

I know a lot of artists don't like remaking plushies, but I've fallen in love with your Allen Walker plushie with Timcampy.  I was wondering if you'd be willing to make him again,  and if you have various sizes.

I'd really love to commission you for him 

Also, do you ship to the United States?

Is the Rose plushie from Bleach still up for adoption?
If he is, then I'd love to grab him, when you have the time!
