Hello there internet!
I know it may seem like I come and go from here, but I've always been here. Even if I don't post much photos, I come to DeviantArt every day to read your wonderful comments. I'm sorry to the many that I don't respond to. It's just hard sometimes to always tell others that I can't help them.
It's interesting, after seeing How to Train Your Dragon 2. How these movies can move so many of us in countless ways. And then we do what we can to share that love with others. Some through beautiful artwork, some through clever stories, others through chats on forums. Turns out my way just happened to be through these plushes. Quite unfortunate that it had to be something so time consuming, and SO wanted by many. It's sometimes hard to show others that these are more than just objects, but symbols of what we love, and who we are.
For so long I've wanted to make something that could spread love and joy to others. Something they could always go to, to cheer them up. I thought I had found that thing... but I was only copying what someone else had made.
But was it really copying? I found something that I loved, and made it into something of my own, to try a capture a piece of what I cherished, and share it with the world. I wanted to be like those who created what I loved, and make others feel the way they made me feel. While it lasted, it was amazing, and I guess it still is. I brought my plush to the premiere of Dragon 2, and it brought many smiles to other fans.
Making plushes is something I did not expect to do well with. I can only hope that it will move me onto even greater things, and finally, truly be a part of those who create things for others to love.
Also, don't be afraid to ask me to make a Toothless plush. I know I said it's hard to say no, but you never know when something could happen. I had many dreams come true these past couple years that I never thought would, maybe some of yours will too.
BTW, wasn't How to Train Your Dragon 2 amazing?! It really was like an animated movie for not just kids. I think everything by DreamWorks should go this route, because nobody else is doing it, and it's fantastic.
Hope you are doing well internet. Stay safe, and do something crazy!
