Elapsam semel occasionem non ipse potest Iuppiter reprehendere."Not even Jupiter can find a lost opportunity."Today we have Phi from the game Virtue’s Last Reward on the 3DS.  I just finished that game a few months back and boy did I love it!  I recommend it to anyone who likes escape the room games and hard puzzle.  However it is a sequal to the game 999 on the DS, so make sure to go play that first, otherwise things are kinda confusing.It’s actually pretty rare that I get to make a character from a game or show that I’ve actually seen or played, so making Phi was a real pleasure!Phi is part 2/2 of a commission for Kenny Lennon on Etsy!Does anyone twitter?  I do, I guess!  @PancakePlush

staff:

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

Hey followers!   I know we don’t talk much, but I urge you to take this seriously.  If you like what I do and want me to keep doing it, then please contact your representative and tell them you do not want companies controlling what you can and can’t see on the internet.  I’m making a living doing what I love because of the internet and if net neutrality is destroyed then in turn my livelihood will suffer.  And so will many other artists making a living online.

TL;DR CONTACT YOUR STATE REP DEMAND NET NEUTRALITY DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER.

This busty babe is Momoko Yamada from some really obscure H-Game.  Boy did those boobies give me trouble.  After switching to the new fabric for plushie skin the boobie pattern didn’t work anymore for some mysterious unknown reason, so after much trial and error I managed to get Miss Yamada’s body together.Momoko is part 1 of 2 plushies for :iconShadowSpike64:Also, does anyone here really use or like twitter?  I made one, but haven’t really gotten a huge response from it.

fenrirflame said: How do you fight the copyright stuff for the characters you "plushify"?Or does all of the money you make go to the companies?

I know there’s a lot of artists, especially plush artists, that struggle with this concept, so I’m glad you asked!

Just for clarity this is my personal opinion and how I do things, so those of you out there may disagree.

The copyrighted characters I make are owned by big companies that are making TONS OF MONEY.  I’m down here making a pitifully small amount in comparison.  Almost no company will care whatsoever if you sell plushies or art of their characters because they’re getting their money elsewhere.  Especially when the company doesn’t offer plushies or prints of their characters themselves because they don’t feel it would be profitable for them.  If they feel that way then they’re not gonna care about some people on the internet hand making fanart.

Now, it would be different if I were mass producing plushies of copyrighted characters, then they’d probably take notice.  Mass production entails huge batches of plushies and at that point you’d be making enough profit and buzz around your product to turn some legal department heads.

One last thing I wanted to mention is making plushies of characters from smaller creators like webcomic artists.  ALWAYS ALWAYS ask permission to make and sell plushies of characters that belong to smaller creators.  The reason being that those artists are probably depending on their own work to put bread on the table and profiting off of their characters would be in really awful.

Well, I’ve said my piece.  If anyone else out there has any comments or opinions on the matter, feel free to discuss! I don’t talk to my followers enough I don’t think!

When I told my boyfriend I was making Kaiden he told me “I bought that guy a drink once to be a bro and then suddenly he wanted to make out with me!  I was like ‘I didn’t mean it like that!’  I was just trying to be a bro…”This is Kaiden Alenko from the Mass Effect series!  I don’t do people in armor often and it’s always a challenge when I do.  I think he turned out really nice though!  Especially his handsome 5 o’ clock shadow.Kaiden is a commission for Sierra Berry on Etsy!Also, I twitter now @PancakePlush
