This is so cool, I love seeing multiple artist's work together! So interesting to see all the differences and similarities. Looking at collections I've been thinking I need to make a larger size for mine too, think they're probably on the smaller end of artist plushes compared to everyone else, makes me feel a bit inadequate Well especially compared to Nazegoreng's xP
A fine collection you have so far, worthy of this lovely pony. Dat poster.
And yeah, Naze's ponies are huge! I wouldn't worry if yours aren't as big as her's are I know SpaceVoyager is actually making her pattern a little smaller now. I think the size variety is nice!
Mine are a spare 13" hoof to head. I think they also tend to be more slender than many other artists though, so it seems smaller. I was thinking an additional pattern that's 15-16", just for personal variety. Hmmm.
lol yeah, I don't need to make them a lot bigger, though I've wanted to try out a large pony at some point too, maybe double size.
I've actually really wanted to try making a "life sized" pony, but I have no idea where I'd put it and I'm certainly not going to make one to try and sell. Shipping that would be a nightmare! Plus I think it would be really difficult to get what it was worth. Maybe I should make a "life sized" filly. That would be a lot smaller
Well that little bit can make a difference! Mine are only 13" because I tweaked the pattern so many times making their legs and necks longer
Smaller is always cuter, it's just too bad how much harder it makes it to sew. Was thinking.. if I think if I wanted tiny ponies for myself I'd just do away with all the extraneous darts and sharp curves, lol. I kinda wish I had made my first ponies bigger so the fillies would be easier to sew now. But it'd be nice to make the princesses bigger, I think, I like to keep them in scale too
How big is lifesize now? I always picture the ponies as like a medium size dog, maybe because their heads are so big and it'd be weird to see a big pony in real life like that o_o In any case lifesize filles sounds like a great idea
Yeah there are so many fiddly little parts when they get tiny. Also even though they are super cute when they are tiny, they aren't nearly as nice to hug!
While there isn't a hard set size for "life sized" I think he general consensus from the few different things I've looked at is that they are around three and a half feet tall excluding horns or crazy big hair. Fillies, then would be a little more than two feet tall, which is probably a more reasonable size of plushie to make! Maybe I can make a life sized filly Rarity! Because obviously if I'm making it for myself it has to be Rarity I wish there were some way to make a plushie that could actually stand in her getting pulled by her horn to a rock before getting her cutie mark pose. That is just the first thing that Springs to mind when I think of filly Rarity.
I know what you mean. I can't hang on to any of my own, that's for sure! Eventually I'll make a Rarity for myself, but who knows when that will happen?
