Angus is Tired by Pickleweasel360 Angus is Tired by Pickleweasel360
He is so tired from posing for pictures. Why does he look so cute laying down :3 I believe this may be my favorite pose of all the ones I took today. All he is missing is an adorable curly haired cutie sitting beside him. At this scale I don't think I could make the Princess too, but if I went up to the bulky sized yarn for him, they would probably be at the right scale for each other.

I'm really impressed with how natural the pose (and the horse itself) looks.
are the legs "just" tubes, or have they been "pre-shaped" while crocheting?
love the fur on the legs, too. :)

[link] shows a better angle of how the legs are shaped. The hooves get shaped and the thigh but the knee/elbows don't since this is a smaller scale figure. The giraffe I did has some but you can't really tell. Thank you, I try to get as close as I can to the real thing when I make them. It's hard though with the small scale I'm used to, but I learn with each piece. The fur is actually yarn also it's been brushed to make it fluffy.

I would like to say that while I hate horses with a passion, this is a really well done piece. You wouldn't happen to have a pattern would you?

That's great! Have you ever been to ravelry.com? You can sell your patterns on there, and they copyright it for you. It's a great way to sell your patterns :D

I have actually, when I first started thinking about crochet I went on there and got a TON of free patterns. Even though I've only made a few of them, it was nice to have such a large amount of free ones to look at. I think I might use Etsy when I sell them. I'm still mostly clueless on how to use Ravelry's set up.

Well if you ever have questions about how to use the one on Ravelry, just ask! You'll probably get a whole lot more sales for the pattern on ravelry. :D

Now I'm super jealous XD I've been doing this for like 4 years, but I didn't make anything for over a year because I lost interest and then I stop making things for months at a time. Your Angus looks super good and it already has me admiring your yet to be made Epona.

I get burnt out on projects when I want to start something new. Sometimes I wont crochet for days. Eventually I will probably stop for a while, but for now I'm eager to make new things. Thank you so much! :hug: I really love his fluffy feet. A lot of people have suggested Epona, so I think when I have time I will make one to sell. Angus is staying with me but I have a feeling someone will want one eventually. :)

His feet are my favorite part! How did you say you did that with the yarn? I recall something about a wire brush. You're way better at sticking with it than I am. I'm also terrible at taking breaks and stretching so I've got a kink in my wrist so you should watch out for that!

Pickleweasel360 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I use a wire brush and brush out whichever part I need to be fluffy. Its much better than using fluffy yarn, at least I think so :) Its just a dog brush. They make smaller ones but this one has a wide base so you can get a lot of force out of it.
Oh man, if I do it for a long time my hands will go to sleep. My left thumb would lock up at night because of it for the first few months. My hands still go to sleep a lot if I'm working on a large piece. The internet is a good distraction/break haha.

XD Yes the internet! I always watch videos of people playing scary games while I crochet, so then I'm distracted and not too scared, but then I think The games aren't all that scary til I try to play them myself. I would have never thought of a dog brush as I have never had a dog. I'll keep that in mind the next time I go to my local pet store.

What kind of game do you watch online? I've only played one that I thought was creepy/scary and it was a Japanese game called Siren for Playsation 2. Just the way the game was set up you could see through the eyes of the enemies creeping around. They could get so close to you and your like O.O go away! Its so dark in the game you really can't see the enemy until its about to get you. CREEPY.

I would be so much more distracted if I had high speed internet. Deviantart, Etsy, and Facebook really are my only distractions. I would be on youtube all day if it didn't take hours to watch a 3 minute video.

The dog brush works great. It has an arch to it so you aren't putting too much pressure on your work. I wish I had a small one too so that I could get in detailed spots. Its too big for things like small ears. You should get a dog! I've had them all my life they are amazing.
