Elmechu Plush Commission by DemandinCompensation Elmechu Plush Commission by DemandinCompensation
OH MY LORD LOOK AT THESE ADORABLE PICTURES :iconblushingplz: They make Elmechu look so life-like and amazing~ AHHHHH <3<3<3

Pictures are thanks to *Talec! :heart: And her awesome official Gundamusai model posing with Elmechu! :D I... scribbled on the pictures because I couldn't resist. :flirty:



This is Elmechu, the SD form based off of the Elmeth mobile.






Wwwwwoooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
Elmechu roughly measures 6-7" wide. It only really sits in two positions naturally; tilted forward with it's nose to the ground and tail erect in the air, or tilted backward, nose in the air and tail propping itself up. It can, however, be adjusted slightly from where it sits, though I do not recommend it.

Elmechu was hand stitched and took roughly 20 hours or more to gather the materials, plan the 3-dimensional structure, sew, re-sew, (argue with my Dad) and ship this craft.




Elmechu has been and will still be- a first and only. I am not making another again, nor can I take any more commissions for anything I do not own per copyright. T3T Which includes Pokemon, fyi.

I will, however, make plushes for myself, which may include Pokemon or other fan-crafts, because... I'm not making any profit. :)
(Not that I made profit in this plush, since it was only $25, but still I wanted to do it for Talec---because Talec is beyond awesome. T~T <3 )


I would gladly give tips to anyone who is interested in making plushes, the similar shape, or elmechu itself. This plush is NOT to be resold to anyone!
Pfft, as if Talec would do that.

Artist's crit: If I had to rate my own work, based upon having no thorough experience with sewing before, and never successfully making a plush before, I would... give myself a 6.5 or 7 out of 10.

Mind you, it turned out d@mn cute, but it is still slanted, the feet didn't line up perfectly (and I should have put some weight into the feet! the tail outweighs it), the ears are too tiny and horn-like, and though the body shape is close to the original design of Elmechu--- it is still no dice in my opinion.

I am most proud of the how the triangular points had come out (shame I didn't leave myself equal amounts of fabric from one side to the other!), how the eyes and whiskers came out, and how the nose came out. I am also happy I fixed the tail.



------------------------------------------------------------------
Early Feelings and Comments about Process: This took a lot of thought. D8;
I mean, a LOT.
I've kind of got mixed feelings about it. I was really excited and proud in the first stages with getting the shape down, but a minor error led to it being... well, slightly slanted and disproportioned. It's slight enough that it's fine to live with... but it was still disappointing.
The tail... Oh lord, I hate this tail. :XD: Making each ball for it isn't hard at all (I sew gray fabric around orange 1.5" pom-poms. It only takes ten minutes per ball, but it causes a lot of hand cramping), connecting it has been some trouble though. I even thought about making a tutorial, since it shows an easy way to make a Weedle/Elmechu tail.
*cries*
*and* I KEEP LOOSING TRACK OF THESE BALLS D8;;;; ((I ended up not attaching three of them, which, is fine in the end but.... still unnecessary work. ))

But now I'm more satisfied with it, eyes/whiskers/ears make up for the slight disproportion...

Ahhh, this was a commission so the piece you are looking at was shipped away to the commissioner. I'm not able to make another at this time, it's been quite a while.

Sob thank you for your interest though. qvq
