2014 Summer Commissions CLOSED

commission status: CLOSED
art trades: CLOSED




EDIT on 01/07/14 Finally answered all my mail! It took a while since all the projects looked awesome (and I may have also been distracted by the new Legend of Korra episodes that I had no idea premiered!) Anyway, there were a lot of requests for the classic type and I only have enough fabric for around 12 plushies, so I couldn't accept everything. I do still have lycra in a shade paler which will still be available in the future. Thanks for all the inquiries and I'm once again sorry for not being able to take them all. ^^; I did load on quite a bit and I'm looking forward to the work. :XD:

Hello! :wave: Sorry this is a bit late, but here's the info at last!

This summer I’ll be accepting commissions on a selective basis, and not through first-come/first-served.  They can either be custom projects or adopt-a-project.  

:star: How will it work?
It’s the same way as before, but the only difference is that I can’t accept everything/anything due to my time constraint. Basically, I will review all of the requests and only choose a select few. I don’t want to overflow my plate, but I might also set up a waitlist for the projects that aren’t chosen.

If you’re a new commissioner, please be sure to review all the details on how to send an inquiry. The links above for custom projects and adopt-a-project have all the necessary info, but if anything is unclear, feel free to comment on this journal.

:star: When does it start?
Now! But no need to rush because I will only be reviewing them on July 1st, meaning you’ve got about 2 weeks to prep an inquiry.  If you’d like a quick estimate to make sure that you can afford the project, be sure to note me here on DA  (or email me at pheleon[at]gmail[dot]com).  

:star: How will projects be chosen?
I have 3 main criteria:
- Available resources (if I can’t easily access the materials, I can’t make the project!)
- Time (if I know a super difficult project will take me 2 months, no matter how awesome I think it is, I won’t be able to do it.)
- Personal interest or attraction to the design.

Also, SPECIAL PRIORITIES!
:bulletblue: Adopt-a-project will most likely take priority since they by default fit the previous criteria. The only bugger is the time factor. (e.g. if 20 projects are requested, I obviously can’t do them all.)
:bulletred: Otakuthon-goers! I will be attending the con, so if you’re going too, I might place priority on your project so that it can be available for pickup. In your inquiry, please be sure to write OTAKUTHON in the email subject line.
   
TL;DR
Requests are now open and will close on July 1st.
Please read the info in the links. I won't be checking the inquiries until July 1st, so if you have a question, comment below, note me, or email the pheleon account (and not pheleoncommissions which is reserved for commission inquiries).

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.

Hi Pheleon, Just wondering...
A friend of mine wanted a Korra plushie, and was wondering if you do repeats of past projects?
