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.

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. :)
