CUTE!!! I love Raichu! It's so CUTE! (Unlike Pikachu) I want one, but my brother thought mom should make Pichu and Pikachu instead. Pichu's cute, and if you've seen "Pokémon bitches," you'd understand why I like Pikachu just fine... But still...
That's a shiny Raichu? o.o It looks just like a regular Raichu...oh well. My favorite thing about this....the feet...the pads on the paws are such an awesome detail. It looks so soupa cuddly, I just wanna chok*ahem* hug the stuffing out of it >xD Ah, how did you make the mouth and the winking eye? I can't really tell. Is it material sewn on?
Shiny Raichus are supposed to be a darker orange (or a reddish orange) instead of a gold-ey yellow, but this was the closest I could get. >n< (tho it doesn't help that the merchandise they make of him varies in color so much! @_@)
I'm really happy with how the feet came out, I'm looking foreward to making more plushies with little feets!
The mouth and eye are black fleece glued them on with craft glue. I've been experimenting with soaking fleece in sculpey glaze to make it stiff enough when it dries to cut out easier, and then painting it with acrylic paint. (which I used for the ear curlies) It's working pretty well so far, but there's some other stuff I wanna try out. :3
Thanks very much! I thought about embroidering parts of it, but I don't have an embroidery machine and I've only ever tried it by hand a couple times, so I'm trying to get good with it on side projects before I start using it on commissions. =3=
