So I’ve just finished the second Fluttershy (for my own collection) I was working on during my Fluttershy commission. This makes her plushie number 17. I wanted to try use bubblegum pink minky for her hair instead as well as closed wings. I feel closed wings suit Fluttershy a lot better than opened wings (whereas the opposite is true for RD).
The mane is – again – slightly different from my last Fluttershy, I wanted to try something different. To be honest, I like both. The previous Fluttershy’s mane is very 3D and “dynamic” and looks great from the front view – you have to really see her in real life to fully appreciate this. Whereas… this Fluttershy’s mane is more 2D but as a result appears more show accurate from side view. Hope that kinda makes sense 😛
I’d like to also specifically point out how much I LOVE my closed wings pattern (it’s got layers!!!!)! 😀 Closed wings ponies are so underrated! I feel you can better appreciate a pony’s curves with closed wings. Opened wings have a tendency to block everything… :S lol – sorry I’m blabbering – it’s nearly 4.30am and I’m slowly becoming delirious.
I’ve made FOUR Fluttershys already xD so I don’t think I’ll be in a rush to make her again (unless it’s a commission). I’ve been neglecting my poor RD who is 70% finished xD so I’m going to work on her tomorrow night, and hopefully have her completed in the next few days! 😀 Then it’s onto Twilight x2!!!!! (thinking of making wings with magnets, but I hate working with magnets :< do you all just use strong glue to secure it or what?)
