I should probably illustrate or post some pics about this, but for now, here’s some tips about how I get my felties to look so smooth. Here’s a copy/paste from my deviantart:
…I felt these until they are really dense and firm, so there’s not much room for bumps and pits. I also use various grades of needles - it could be that you are using a more coarse, heavy duty needle on your work rather than one of the finer, finishing ones.
I also let the felties sit for about a day before I photograph them. I might just be imagining things, but I swear that the wool relaxes a little if you let it sit and that helps to minimize the pock marks. The finishing touch is that I use a battery powered lint trimmer, the kind used to de-pill sweaters, to nip off stray hairs and smooth it out. That combined with some good natural light (NO FLASH!) and you can get a nice, smooth look both in real life and in photos
an oldie but I am happy to see it making the rounds :) who didn’t have a positively joyous reaction the first time they teleported into Zeal? :D
First Time In Zeal by Stephanie Laberis
My first time playing chrono trigger, zeal was like the coolest thing I had ever seen in an rpg. I love the idea behind this illustration that chrono and his party were equally as stoked to be in a goddamn floating city in the clouds.
Every time I post one of my own pieces of artwork, a couple of people stop following me. I didn’t realize smiling doggies and rats were so offensive, you guys!
BRB DYING OF LAUGHTER. XDDDDDDDD

A special portrait of my Dad’s border collie mix to give as a gift to him when he visits this week. I am soooo damn excited :3
This will be available as a print in my online shop this week, without the text. I love you guys, but only my Dad gets the print with the special words! ;)
