Speckled Neon Dragon Plushie by DragonsAndBeasties Speckled Neon Dragon Plushie by DragonsAndBeasties
I really had fun with this one. I loved the neon speckle fleece I found so I designed her around it. Her horns are actually lime green to match the spots (they are close in color to her pendant), and her spikes are white. I don't know why my camera sucks so much, but it really has trouble with greens for some reason -_-

I really wanted to paint markings around her eyes, but I wasn't sure of the best way to do it. I did a test with acrylics on fleece and while I like the control it offers, I hate the look and feel of it. I tried pastels, which look gorgeous, but they're messy! I wouldn't want it to rub off on people, or smudge... any suggestions on a good way to color on fleece but still keep it fairly soft and cuddly? I'd love to paint neat designs on these guys if I find a good way to do it :D

Sewn by me from fleece fabric, about 8 inches tall
Sorry but I AM NOT SELLING THE PATTERN at this time.

Would it be much if I asked for the pattern to make one for my Neice? She saw it and was begging me to make one for her.

These are adorable plushies.

Will you do an FAQ? Just wondering how long it takes you to make one of these.

it takes me about 5-7 hours to make each one, rough estimate though

Have you ever considered trying a plain colored background to take photos on? There could be some washout with the background which is why the light green isn't showing up on her horns as well. I've definitely had this problem with light greens like that.

I'm not sure if you edit your photos or not before posting but I've taken to using Picasa (mainly because I don't have a computer that can handle photoshop right now) and just messing with the highlights and brightness slider bars. I also make sure I have my flash turned off on my camera and I set it to the close up settings. It definitely helps since there is no need for camera flash at such a close proximity. At least so long as you have proper lighting otherwise. :)

One thing you could try if the marks are fairly large is cutting pieces out of fabric and sewing them on. It would be pretty tedious, but that's one way I can think of for sure to make it work. Or if you just wanted to 'shadow' the eye with the dot patter you could cut out pieces and either sew them on or attach them with the eye pieces. I'm not entirely sure how to solve your problem, but these are just a few ideas, take them or leave them. Also, the plushie is totally adorable.

Maybe you could try using copic pens. I have seen other deviants using copics on the dolls with faux fur and it comes out beautiful. Don't know if alcohol based pens will work on your type of fleece but I figured I would try it on the only fleece I have at the moment, which is the cheaper square ones that are different colors. I don't know the effect that you are looking for but it came out nicely on the fleece when I went over my line several times. Didn't smug either. Hope this helps!

You could get some Tulip 3D fabric paint. The colors show surprisingly well on black, and they don't smudge or rub off after they dry. They come in little bottles, and if I remember right, they are fairly cheap and pretty standard in any craft store. So you shouldn't have any problems finding them.

Your dragons are absolutely adorable! I really love the patterns you have.
To your question, have you ever tried fabric puff paint? It'll be raised, but you can get a cute scaly effect.

:icondragonsandbeasties:
DragonsAndBeasties Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thanks! Oh yeah I could totally use that for raised scale designs! I hadn't thought about it that way, because I just wanted flat paint, but that's actually a good idea :)

maybe your camera isn't picking up the green because of the background color? green and magenta are opposites, so it could have something to do with that
Reply
:icondragonsandbeasties:
DragonsAndBeasties Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Nope. I tried literally every background color I have with her. My camera has always hated green. She was tricky to find a background for anyway because a lot of them washed out the pink. I think neon is just kind of hard to photograph in general :XD:
