So you want to digitizeIn this tutorial I'm going to attempt to explain how to autodigitize images into embroidery files. There are many different software programs out there. Here is a link to some free software called Stitch Era: http://www.imprimeo.net/howget.htmSo you want to digitize2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this tutorial I'll be showing you how to digitize using PE Design Lite!
This software is best used in conjunction with an image editing program like Adobe Photoshop. I've found that PE Design Lite is quite finicky with colors so you need a high quality vector image of the design you want to digitize.
So the first thing you need to do is find or create your design. Once you have a good quality image open your software.
Note: PE Design Lite has only the most basic of functions. For more embroidery options you'll need to buy/download more advanced digitizing programs.
Step 1: Open software
Step 2: Import your image
This is the file I want to digitize:
Step 3: Click the autodigitize button and the color grid will pop up.

Autumn / Fall Contest! - MORE PRIZES ADDED!Hey Plushkateers!Autumn / Fall Contest! - MORE PRIZES ADDED!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, an apology for the former contest.
My honest opinion on the idea was that it would be a good opportunity to help someone out and beneficial to the winning plushie maker. You have argued that this is not the case and I am sorry, I only want my group to be happy. So two hours ago I made a poll for the NEW Oct/Nov contest.
So, the NEW contest will be Autumn / Fall themed. Plush something that YOU feel describes Autumn / Fall. It could be an animal, it could contain certain autumnal colours, it could be a plushie dressed in a raincoat and boots, it is up to you!
Wanna enter a plush, that's already in the group gallery? Click me!
Only those that fit the theme will be accepted.
You may use previously made plushies, you don't have to make one especially for this contest, but you may NOT enter with professional/store bought plushies, or anything that other people have made.

Why fursuits cost so much$56.68 - 1.5 Yards fake furWhy fursuits cost so much1 year ago in Personal More Like This
$5.05 - tax
$10.44 - shipping
$73.17 Order Total
Shit man, and this fur is just for the lower arms and digigrade legs of the next suit I am working on... and this may not even be enough fur for the job.
$73.17 does not even buy enough fur for this entire project, let a lone the cost of the foam, stuffing, thread, eyeblanks (I buy the super nice acrylic ones... the super nice expensive acrylic ones) clay, glue, zipper, etc (and this one has airbrushing, horns, hooves and a mane of hair too)
And then there are start up costs like a glue gun, storage racks, air brush unit and a sewing machine (namely the machine/airbrush, either way good ones will be $500+)
Fursuits are not cheap nor easy to produce... and they take lots of time and skill, and really the biggest thing you pay for when purchasing a good fursuit is time and skill.
Fursuits take hundreds of dollars in material and hundreds of hours in time to build, and behind each well built suit is a pers

Today's Special is all about Soft Body Dolls.
What is a Soft Body Doll?
Soft body dolls are constructed from fabrics and enhanced with details made from clay, polymer clay, resin or other more solid materials. Some of these creations have sculpted faces and hands/paws or other such details.
Here is an example of fantastic soft body dolls to be found in the Dolls, Plushies & Toys gallery:

Guide for submitting OCs to Your OC SucksWe here at Your OC Sucks have 3 ways you can submit oc's to the show. You can either submit to our Deviantart account, or Tumblr, or directly to our email. Just follow these steps for submitting to the individual sitesGuide for submitting OCs to Your OC Sucks4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Deviant Art: The most preferred place for OC submissions. Send a note with a link to the OC that you wish to submit, try to include any backstory the character may have. Its preferred that 3 different pieces could be submitted to the show (but it is still okay to only send in only 2 or 1) Deviant art is the preferred place to submit to because we can easily add the work of art to one of our Favorites folder and easily link back to the piece and show the proper attention that your (or other peoples) art deserves. The note will receive a private reply to let you know that the OC is being considered for an episode or not.
Tumblr: This is a better option for people who wish to have something they could reblog to their Tumblr blogs. A submission to our Tumblr will be sh

Hi everybody!!! I decided that I want to hold another contest! I wanted to make it an exclusive contest for :iconart-fantasies: but I feel that the theme I really wanted to do, wasn't very fitting for the group, so it is a personal contest, that anybody can join!

They have to be OC's, not fan characters, or characters from 3rd parties (pokemon,naruto,sonic, ect)
Reference Pictures of Bjorn:
Bonus points if:
You draw him in his armor!!!
NO SEXUAL THEMES
Nothing too violent/involving our characters hurting each other
Bjorn MUST be in the image
You must have AT LEAST 1 OC in the image
It has to be a scene: example-- sky, grass,forest, characters

Contest Stuff-HumanizationI would like to remind everyone that this must be your own work. I do now allow the uses of bases, or doll makers. I CAN tell when it's not your original work. If I get suspicious about an entry, I go and look at the persons gallery. Usually, based off of what you've drawn originally, and what are bases I can tell when the art isn't yours. There have been 2 people so far that have tried to turn in entries that were made with bases. That is NOT the way to try to win because I'm not stupid and will find out about it. It's easy to spot unoriginal work, especially when it seems the two people used the same base style. So yeah, any entries that are bases show me that you didn't read the rules and you will be disqualified from the contest.Contest Stuff-Humanization4 months ago in Personal More Like This
