Commission for :icontaridium:

PROCESS
Mace is made from white and caramel minky, with cotton and faux fur clothing. 
He is approx 24" tall. His eyes were embroidered with a Brother Innovis 750D embroidery machine, Madiera Rayon embroidery thread, and Bernina V6 embroidery software and feature gradient embroidery. The eyes were designed and digitised by me. His pattern was also designed by me. His legs, arms, neck and hands contain wire. His arms and especially fingers are fully posable.  The jacket is fully removable. His pants are not removable but you can undo them XD. 

Please do not ask for the pattern, under no circumstance will I be giving it out. 

COMMENTS

Eeeeee I'm so proud of how this guy came out. I love love love working on anthros, and this is the first plush I've made since I've been taking my dressmaking classes. I definitely think my clothing making skills have improved greatly. Just love how his outfit came out. He's so much fun to pose, really expressive. 

PLEASE zoom in to check out his details

Please comment/fav. It means a lot to me. I read and appreciate every comment even if I don't have a chance to reply to everyone. 
I would appreciate it if you did not critique my work at this time.

I'll never make a Mace plush again. This is it. There's no editing that can be done to this plush. There's no 'next time'. The only thing your comment achieved was to make me feel like I'd done a bad job, and honestly I prefer to receive critique in the midst of making the plush, not after the fact. And from people who understand the process. 

Anyway I don't feel like pushing this any further. Have a happy holidays.

Honestly whether or not you comment is up to you. But please respect that not all artists appreciate critique on their work. It's their decision when and where they seek it.

Wow, asshole much?
The day you make a plush better than the one above, is the day you're justified to say that shit. Even then you'd still be an asshole for saying it.

This plush is an amazing piece of work, and has all been individually patterned specifically for this character so it's a one off piece.

You obviously don't know much about the projects Naz takes on if you're asking if people will eventually commission other characters.

The problem is, you were too blunt and incredibly harsh. Yes, sometimes it's okay to give critique when the artist asks for it but if you put it in such
a bland and harsh manner, it sounds like you're putting down hours and hours of hard work.

Now I also do plush work too but mine is nothing compared to Naz's and all the other artists who have spent years perfecting their technique and talent
to create a huggable bundle of art.

I can't tell you how soul-crushing it is for someone to criticize your plush after spending hours on it without some positive reinforcement. The plush I made,
Meepo, I spent literally over a month on and when I was finished I showed some people online and they said the head made it look like his neck was broken,
that his eyes were creepy and that he couldn't stand either. Some people were positive, others weren't and those that leave those harsh comments do
hurt the artist's confidence.

Next time, really think and read your comment, think about how it would come across to the other person reading it. Remember, they can't see your face,
they can't hear your voice and they only have your words to go by.

So really, THINK before you type.

There's always a lot of work put into all art and some criticism is
good but like I said, you're incredibly blunt and even now, you're
coming across as rude and Naz isn't lashing out, she's defending
her work.

Most importantly, you should always ask the artist if they want
critique or not. You may have good intentions but sometimes 
people aren't putting out their art to be judged, just to show what
they've created, to express their creative energy through a medium.

So how much art have you seem like this then in 6 years?
Despite that, you should always ask if the artist wants to
hear critique before giving it.
