Update: to answer the many questions about the "feel" of the airbrushed areas, mostly it is still nice, smooth and soft.  The extremely light blue/cyan at some ends required additional layers so are slightly rougher to touch, but still soft :D (I reckon I could create the same effect with less layers next time ^^").

OMG!  AT LOOOOOOOOOONG LAST!  Novalis is FINALLY COMPLETE!  ^^ 

Novalis is the "Design-An-OC-For-Me" contest winner :iconlanmana:'s prize!  ;)

He's such an epic OC and I'm so happy and honoured I got to plush him for :iconlanmana:.  He was very airbrush intensive and taught me a lot about airbrushing light colours on dark fabrics.  I used shannon midnight blue for his hair and shannon navy for his body - so everything else you see on him has been airbrushed on.  I would also like to credit my wonderful husband who helped me develop the technique of airbrushing light on dark/support/clean up process etc

His armour is fully removable via snap fasteners :)

Novalis was definitely a lot of work, but he was sooooo worth it!  He's such an eye candy to look at ^.^ and I've learnt so much from working on him.

Thank you :iconlanmana: for allowing me to plush your beautiful OC, and I hope you like him as much as I do!!  (I :heart: him)

Details:
*Materials: cuddle 3 minky by Shannon Fabrics, minky baby fabric
*Minky colours: navy, midnight blue, rust, camel, cappuccino, sand, caramel, patterns/gradients by airbrushing
*Stuffing: premium polyester fiberfill, quilt batting, craft foam and poly pellets in hooves
*Thread: gutermann polyester sew-all thread, madeira polyneon embroidery thread
*Eyes/Cutie marks: machine embroidered
*Size: Approx 20" tall, 21" long
*He has my signature embroidered into the bottom of his front right hoof (it looks pink, but it's actually red x3)
*Others: Wire in his tail/wings to add shape and structure, his armour is fully removable via snap fasteners

This is an already beautiful design that you managed to apply physical form to in a way that makes it breath taking to the fullest extent! I can hardly think of words to describe how much my heart throbs at the beautiful colours! I'd love so much to commission you in the future, omg. This is so so inspiring!

For the contests, do we submit our own OC's for you to use, or do we give our OC (And rights to them) to you?

You are utterly amazing! I have no idea how you can turn oc's (even complex ones) into their perfect plushie versions!

thank you so much!  He was such a challenge to get right, and I was still relatively new at airbrushing so I'm really satisfied with how he turned out :3
