Commissioned plush pieces that I made on commission

A fan and fellow artist recently commissioned two plush pieces from me. She asked for creatures of my own design that would represent her and a friend of hers. I drew many things on my computer before I hit upon these designs.

The girl star was initially bald, but I added hair at my patron's request. She gave me the go-ahead and I spent the following week sewing the stars and their little clothes. I don't normally add clothing to my plush, because it's a pain to sew. Sewing those little boots. Not my idea of fun.

I totally finished them though. I did it. I took pictures of the finished plush moments before I left to hand deliver them. My camera's battery was dying as I snapped the shots. It was "Clear and Present Danger" starring Harrison Ford levels of intense.

Also! Paper cut out cards! In the images below the cards look a little blurry. That's the pictures themselves. Those cards were made perfectly focused. I don't construct blurry cut out cards. Trust. Me.
