My latest project- Taurens
Several months ago I had never even heard of a Tauren, then my mother started talking about the World of Warcraft and the characters that inhabit that world. After she saw some of my other work she thought it would be a good idea for me to recreate these characters as plush critters. I chose to start with Taurens because they're critters that I like. They're very spiritual and protect their environment. I did quite a bit of studying to get the look just right. I have 3 plush Taurens available in my shop now and am working on a hunter Tauren and his pet lion. These guys stand about 16" tall and take quite a while to make, but I enjoy doing it. I've always liked stuffed animals, now I have a good excuse to make them! So far this one is my favorite. I used real leather for her top and skirt and used polymer clay for the tree detail on her skirt and the leaf pendant attached to her cloak.
