Literature
The Garden
They stood there together in the truck watching a movie like they did every night. All the day’s work was done and they finally had time to spend together, just the two of them. With nothing but the glow of Christmas lights, overused air fresheners, the television in front of them, and the few stars that peeked through the makeshift skylight EVE had once desperately blasted through the ceiling, WALL-E and EVE leaned in towards one another, hand in hand, watching the scene take place before them. It was the most soothing of situations, and although they practiced this tradition every night, they never tired of it.
It wasn’t their beloved Hello Dolly, tonight. They had to resist the temptation, because they had already watched it the night before, and the night before that, and the night before that. They knew every line, every character, and every scene by heart, and the tape was on the verge of being so worn out it would be rendered completely useless. And anyways, WAL

WALL-E: The Family Directive
Disclaimer: I don’t own any part of WALL•E because, sadly, I don’t work for Disney or Pixar. Yet. Someday I shall join the Geek Squad, but until then, the only thing I own in this story is one original character who I hope you will like. Read and enjoy!
The Family Directive
Early on during the Axiom’s cruise in space, one of the Buy N Large bigwigs decided that the old way of having babies was too much work. It required making the effort to get up out of one’s comfortable hover-chair, interacting with a member of the opposite sex, and doing things in private that should not be spoken of in polite company. Why go to all that trouble when it was far easier to let the robots and computers do all the work? Just like machines, babies could be mass reproduced and even customized through genetic engineering. Therefore, each generation of humans became progressively more dependent on this process to produce the next. As the centuries passed, humans totally forgot where

MerihSaan Gryphon Ref 2018
Badly needed update for my gryphoness Merih`Saan. Her original reference sheet was  kind of Meh, and I added a couple details such as her wedding band from my partner Rehkal.

  • Listening to: Five Finger Death Punch
Due to the increased interest in my plush and soft sculpture work I have created a pricing guide and TOS.

Please be sure to read through my TOS before asking for a commission:


Custom plushes are priced on a case by case basis. Please see the illustrated pricing guide here: nightwinggalleries.com/plushpr…

Before requesting a commission please read the guidelines below. By doing so you are acknowledging you are over the age of 18 and have the authority to conduct business online.

References and Designing:

I require color references for all work. Static front, back and side views are best. Dynamic photos are workable, but may result in inaccuracies due to incomplete views. Please make sure that these are current and as accurate as possible. I do not take responsibility for inaccurate characters due to incomplete reference materials.

Pattern design usually takes about a month to complete, I have to make the new pattern several times to ensure that it will look correct. Plushes made from existing patterns will be able to skip this phase.

Fabric will be purchased once the pattern design is complete. Custom colors can be dyed with the understanding that dying minky fabric is a fickle process and the end color may not be exact. Pains will be taken to get the colors as accurate as possible. Fur can not be dyed and is limited to the existing colors available for purchase.


[b][u]Time Frame:[/u][/b]

Custom designs generally take 2-3 months to complete. More complex designs take longer than simple ones. I tend to send a lot of in-progress shots and post a lot of them to my twitter @merihsaan. If you do not want me to post the WIP photos, please tell me.

[b]
[u]What will I make?[/u][/b]

My plush commissions right now are limited to 4-legged creatures. I do not work with anthros, humanoids or any derivative thereof. I also do not make plushes with an SPH, so please do not ask. I do not touch anything Disney, or Disney owned. I have no desire to go head to head with them in court over copyright.



[b][u]Payments, cancellations and Refunds:[/u][/b]

For any custom work there is a minimum materials + 20% downpayment that is non-refundable. This is to cover any materials purchased and used to complete the project along with covering time spent designing a pattern and cutting it out.

Paypal invoices will be sent for all commission requests.
Payment plans are acceptable for soft sculptures over $400. A paypal invoice will be sent with the total amount. Please be aware though that no work will be done to cut/sew until the payment is received in full.


No refunds will be given on custom plushes once the order has started being sewn.  
Shipping will be refunded in full if the order is cancelled.
Items will be shipped US Priority mail unless otherwise indicated, with insurance for items over $100 in value. Tracking numbers will be provided.



[b][u]Privacy Policy:[/u][/b]
Any and all information collected will be used exclusively to complete business transactions such as name, address and payment information. Information will only be shared with the necessary parties to process payments and ship items. Permission will be requested before sending marketing solicitations or any other use other than the guidelines outlined above. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding this.
Zenith - Leafy Sea Dragon Dragon Soft Sculpture
Finished noodle dragon commission for Zenith over on Twitter. His character is based on a leafy sea dragon, meaning lots of frilly details.
Drafting to completion was about 3 months. Claws are sculpted clay on wire, wire frame for support. The entire thing is made from minky fabric, with airbrushed details.

Akearyu Plush Commission
I finally finished her! Commissioned plush of Kalemdrax's character Akearyu. Minky fabric on a wire armature, airbrushed markings and sculpted claws on wires for the feet. Feathers are bonded minky with wire up the center. This project was a huge undertaking and a steep learning curve. Some 60+ hours of work went into this plush.

Gryphon Tarot: Threes Suite
Next set of Minor Arcana for my Gryphon Tarot card deck.
Three of Cups:
This card can signify parties, weddings, anniversaries, baby showers, birthdays or a holiday dinner. What it signals most strongly, however, is being with those who are emotionally in tune with you and you with them. If this card comes up regarding a question about a new relationship, it usually means that you're either discussing it with friends/family, or introducing this new person to friends/family. You're taking the next step in strengthening your emotional bond with the person. That is to say, you're feeling serious enough about them to let them meet those who are important to you-and let those who are important to you meet them.


Three of Wands:
The person has invested their passion in something - a new career, a big move to a new city (remember wands signify travel as well), maybe they've even thrown their hat into a political ring - and now the energy they sent out is coming back to them. It is a card of progress, of the first hint that the dream can be made real.

This card also indicates that, like a woman holding her new born babe in her arms for the first time, or a politician hearing that the first round of votes are for him/her, the querent might rightly be feeling a little proud, even powerful. They might be warned, however, to not get too excited. Though there is a sense that positive results are coming in, they should wait till the ships have all appeared and docked before celebrating or boasting.


Three of Pentacles:

Three of Pentacles isn't really about being a master of your craft, and the Eight of Pentacles, when it's about apprenticeship, is usually about learning something new and different. So cards are not as out of order as they seem.

We will get to the Eight later, but for right now it's important to understand that the focus of the Three of Pentacles isn't on the craftsman. It's on the investors. We might well be reminded of two young men who created one of the first desktop computers in their garage. They weren't master computer-makers at the time, but their product caught the attention of investors and they were able to put their work and time into making more.

This is what the card is all about. The querent is or will be given the money or opportunity to nurture and develop something. A friend might give them funding, or their boss might give them more time to work on a project. Health wise, this card can also indicate positive results from a new exercise program or therapy. That initial bout of work has paid off.

Three of Swords:

With the Three of Swords, the querent usually senses that something is up even if they don't know what. A friend has been avoiding you, perhaps, or making strange excuses. Something is up, but no one will say what. It feels like everyone is keeping something secret from you. And you may even have your suspicions of what.

The Three of Swords indicates that it's going to finally come out. It will be hurtful, the words sharp, piercing. "I don't like you," or, "I want to break up," or "I'm in love with your best friend" (ouch!). But it will not be a bolt out of the blue. It may even be a relief to finally know. No more waiting, obsessing, wondering, worrying about what could be wrong. This cutting truth, however bitter and painful, allows all that tension and uncertainty to finally drain out. The querent knows how things stand, the truth about how they're seen by others. This development allows them to move on.

A life lived with width, breadth, and above all else, depth is the best kind of life, and you have lived another year of such a life.  Take pride in the undeniable achievement of a worthwhile voyage of discovery through time.  May glory and grandeur not be vicarious experiences, may you plumb the depths and find knowledge, beauty and treasure, may your dreams not elude you and may flashes of inspiration and insight linger to enrich your own days and dreams, and the lives of others.  A very happy birthday to you, and you will not be alone in celebrating the happy miracle of your existence.
