2/18/2015 EDIT:
Just a reminder, a little less than a month left to go!  A couple of entries have been submitted already! :la:

-------

Alright guys!  Votes are in.. the contest theme will be.. *drumroll*.. Mythical Creatures! :dummy:

Deadline for this contest will be March 15th.  This will give you about 2 months to submit your entry!  I am flexible to moving this deadline if enough people would like it changed!

Rules:
  1. You must be a watcher!  This contest is my "thank you" to all the people who have shown support during my time here :)
  2. You must have an address I can send your prize to, should you win!
  3. Any art medium will be accepted.
  4. You can be as creative as you want with this theme.  It is up to your interpretation!  Mentioning where your inspiration comes from, the story behind your work, etc. will up your chances!
  5. Fan-art or art inspired by a fandom will be accepted if it is related to the theme.
  6. If you use a pattern, stock, etc. please give proper credit!
  7. Entries must be made for this contest (anything made before this journal posting will not be accepted).

  11. Entries will be judged based on creativity, quality of work, and presentation!
Prize:

I may choose multiple winners or there may be second, third, etc. places chosen if there are enough entries!  First prize will be a crocheted chibi/baby/derpy mythical creature.  I will allow the winner to give me some input on what kind of creature, special details to include, pose, etc.  Other places (second, third, etc.) will get surprise prizes from me!

Also, it will take me some time to design and create prizes after winners are chosen, but fear not, because your patience will pay off! :la:

All submissions will be featured in a journal at the end of the contest!


Good luck everyone!  I'll update this journal periodically with submissions and any details I may have forgotten!

I've always wanted to learn how to crochet and about three years ago (er.. Spring of 2011), I finally had the time to crack open some books and start learning (In hindsight, Youtube might have been much easier). After a lot of practice making scarves, I began making plushes and have stuck mostly with that ever since (it's just so satisfying getting a toy after all that work :D). I focus on making animated/fan art characters because I enjoy working on them. The majority of these are my own original patterns besides a couple with link references to the patterns.

Regarding patterns, I have a few posted up. Because I learned so much from patterns that many people generously shared online, I'm hoping to give back a little by sharing some too :) I don't write all of them down though because I sometimes don't know how to describe what I'm doing when they get too complicated and I start winging things. I'm working on it though!

As for commissions, unfortunately, I don't do those. I don't really know how to set a price that would be fair for both parties and I just don't have the time! I will probably be much less productive for some time since I'm currently in dental school, but I'll be needing my study breaks :)

Thanks for the page visit :D

P.S. Please excuse my lack of photography skills!

I'm fairly new to amigurumi, and I was just dropping by here to say thank you so much for posting up patterns of your amazing work, especially the adorable laying pokemon plushies! It's so rare to find good patterns for free, and it's so wonderful of you to be giving back to the community.

I know it's not much, but I've sent you a small donation because I know how the cost of supplies can really ramp up!

Also, is there any chance at all that you have a rough pattern for the little bean-shaped bodies you used for your Cats and Mouse series of plushies? I completely fell in love with the Pikachu and was hoping to make it my first ever amigurumi project! But I can't seem to find any patterns anywhere for a similarly shaped/sized body :(

Cheers! :D

I think with the new Majoras mask remake coming out people are getting all excited over Zelda products including skull kid and Deku scrubs lately. And to top off you have the best Amigurumi I've seen hands down on this whole site so work it! 
Btw your Zelda stuff inspired me to make a little Deku Scrub from Majoras Mask :)

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I bought Ocarina of Time off Ebay and I'm playing it for the first time ever on my dusty N64. And now I know what a Skull Kid is. Well, not really, because they're still pretty mysterious dead-forest-child thingies, but I played them a song on the Ocarina and gave them a skull mask and now we're all BFF's.

I felt like you might like to know. :D
