Pattern Making TipsPattern Making Tips by Hoozuki
Hello all, sorry I haven't posted anything in a while, I've had a buttload of homework lately. So the point of this deviation is to help out all those plushie makers that need help with making their patterns.
This is the key to pattern making.
If you can't figure out how to wrap your head around a new pattern, find a plushie that looks similar to what you want to make and look at it really hard for a while. Find all the seam lines and see which corners are where. It possible find any darts and deconstruct the plushie in your mind, putting the whole though process on paper. Once you have each part of the pattern on paper in a general idea, REFINE it.
Keep working on that pattern you have until it starts looking like it would fit together. Remember that a plushie is just an inflatable puzzle.
Then MEASURE the hell out of it. Get all height, length, perimeter, etc.
Go ahead and start working on it then. S

All views, favourites, collections and comments go DIRECTLY to your piece of art, so don't worry about anyone else getting credit for your plushie!!
You can submit as many pictures as you want. Your art will be automatically accepted so no one will get flooded with deviations from this club all at once.
If an image is seen as inappropriate, it will be removed.
Please DO NOT submit official plushies or any tutorials.
How Do I Stop Recieving Group Deviations?
If you don't like receiving a lot of deviations and would prefer to look through them in your own time, you can can opt to remove the "deviations" portion of the group from your devwatch. To do this, you need to go into your friendslist manager and uncheck the box for deviations.
But please don't remove Journals or Blogs. Journals and Blogs are used to give you important information!!
Do You Hold Contests?
We hold one contest every month.
These contests will require you to make something relevant to a theme.
Every month before a contest starts we will all vote on a theme (you can also suggest themes for next months contests via message or note )
To contribute a piece of art to the contest, just submit to the right folder in the gallery, e.g January Contest, May Contest etc.
If a contest entry is seen as inappropriate or not-to-theme, it will be removed with a polite explanation of why it has been removed.
For most contests you can enter as many times as you want, but please remember - it's quality, not quantity that counts!
After the submission date, the group will vote for the winner. Contestants MAY NOT vote.
It is not mandatory that you enter the contests, they're just there for fun, but it would be nice to see some group spirit!
It would be REALLY AMAZING if you wanted to give a prize to the contest winners, even if it's just a mention in your journal! But again, not mandatory
Winners of the May contest are:
kat250, Saint-Angel and Trinkety
FCA = Rythela
