Albino Spider
I made this last year, sorry it took so long to post him! Its a more floppy style and his legs have button joints for a little posing. The floppiness makes it much more cuddly! It can't cling to anything but its like a little fluffy kitty cat sitting in your lap.

Hello all! I'm sorry for not posting more updates and more critters. But i do have things in the works. I even have something finished and ready for a photo shoot! Its a bumble bee inspired thing and i can't wait to show you. I am also very excited about the project im working on now, a handsome canine type creature with a very unique fabric and coloring, he's going to be really special. I've even been trying to make him ball joint legs, which so far is working out well, i just hope i can bring it all together. On top of those two i have three other things all sculpted and wired up, just need to find my way back to them at some point! 

I hope you won't mind a little rant to go along with my update but its something i have to get out, its eating away at me and i hope some of you might have some advice to give.
So heres the situation, I was asked by a coordinator of a horse trail(Eventing) to photograph the show. They also asked another photographer and we decided to team up, well i decided to trust her and allow my photos under her site with an agreed portion of the profits. It has been over a year and she never paid me and has ignored every attempt to contact her. This show i worked for an entire week, 2 days of shooting(which included 4 hours in a complete downpour), 5 long days of editing, uploading and even setting up some of her own site because i thought she was lagging and its always important to me to get photos up as fast as possible. So after all of that hard work and nearly all of the orders featured my photos but she failed to give me any kind of reimbursement.

It makes me feel worthless, disrespected, it feels like she stole my photos, my art. I wanted those who enjoyed my photos to know that, that i worked so hard to give them a special moment from the show and i got nothing. But should they know that? Wouldn't it be unprofessional to publicly post that matter? I thought so, i thought it would be unprofessional to call her out and that it would make myself look bad as well, but it was eating away at me for so long and after months of contemplating making a public post, i finally did it. I wanted to stand up for myself, i honestly never have before. I was careful of the wording, i wanted it to sound professional, just stating the facts, nothing even negative about her just that i wasn't paid per agreement, i really just wanted to give her a final warning, a last chance before taking real legal action. The post was up for only 5 minutes. The first commenter proved my worst fear, they said it was unprofessional, and in poor taste and that i should keep this matter out of the rider's eye. It felt like a slap in the face and as if my heart turned inside out. But she was right and so i deleted it and sent the commenter a message telling her she was right and thanked her. 

But wait, why am i not allowed to stand up for myself and my art, my photos? She didn't pay me and she ignored me, she herself acted in an extremely unprofessional manner, and judging by her photography page continued to do so. Why am i not allowed to call her out? What if she does this to someone else? I feel so conflicted on this, i know going public was unprofessional but so many people bought my photos, shouldn't they know?

I will now start to take legal action. But if anyone has any opinions about making public posts i would be grateful to hear them. Thank you for reading my thoughts, even after being inactive for so long.

Hi there! c:

Would you by any chance be open to doing a horse doll/sculpture (this style: SeaHorse) commission? 
I've been searching DA for someone who makes horse dolls and when I came across your gallery I just fell in love :love: I would love to commission you if you're open to it! <3
