Printed Minky Review
edit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
------------------
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces

That’s pretty bad that my last journal was over a month ago. ^^;
Anyway, I have some plushies from my small collection up for sale! :D (If you’d like to know why, find the details below.)
Asking price is... well, up for offer. Over $230 and under $500. I may accept an offer for Rarity slightly under $230 though. Please note me if interested!

I still have the presents even though they’re not in the picture I took. I think a couple are lose from the sleigh though despite never actually using or having it out much.

I don’t have the same hat anymore. I do have a much lighter colored hat. :iconrarityderpplz:


Cheerleader Twilight by :iconagatrix::

With all accessories shown, including the one in my pictures. I also have Trixie, but didn’t take any pics because I’m not entirely sure I want to sell her:

Classic Ultra Cuddle Rarity by me ^^:
Rarity Finished by adamlhumphreys (similar, though not exact)
The deviation above is an Ultra Cuddle Rarity with wire for mane/tail support. The one up for sale contains no wire, everything is sewn into place, so she’s all the more huggable. :aww:



Why am I selling these?


So, as many people may know, I launched a Kickstarter for a PCB project of mine, and while it wasn’t too bad of a run, I definitely came up short. www.kickstarter.com/projects/9… What I did gain was a lot of experience and knowledge, but that alone can’t pay for anything unfortunately. ^^;

I was hoping and honestly thinking I would at least make my goal, (as nearly most other Arduino related projects have). I thought my attempt to reach out would be better received, but now I know while I may have a list of 100 people, I should expect a 10% response rate. :hmm: To have 250 backers, I need to have a list of 2,500 people. Maybe my timing is dreadfully awful, tough it wouldn’t be the first time. I admit that while I was hoping to expand the project, I’m now at a loss with development. I also thought I could help my dad finally buy a replacement riding lawnmower, (a real commercial one), to replace the $1k one he’s had for years, replacing the blade spindles every time they break, (poorly designed junk and only available as an assembly). The steering wheel recently started popping and couldn’t steer. Taking a closer look, the bottom bearing had worn lose, but luckily I was able to just rotate it 180 to the unworn side. :XD: Yay for simple fixes! :dummy:

If you know anyone who might be interested, please let them know. :thanks: Thank you and have an awesome weekend!

Next tutorial on Patreon will be making a scarf the easy way. :) And more to come, particularly in hopes of new and improved LED Luna! www.patreon.com/adamlhumphreys :iconlunalaplz:

:iconcommissionsonhold:, but feel free to note me and I can add you to my list, however long it takes. :) Pony, anthro, or whatever, (though my next focus will probably be further developing my anthro pattern).
*If you are interested in an OC, know upfront that prices are typically 20-50% more due to development and varies by complexity.*

Notes about my plushies:
-Current List
-Pricing and Commission Details
-Mares are ~13.5" (~34.3 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).
-Fillies are ~11" (~28 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).
-I draft all my own patterns with Photoshop/paper towels and make embroidery files with SophieSew.
-I don’t share my patterns or embroidery files with anyone, but I do have tutorials for SophieSew fav.me/d5dc5ef and offer advice when I can, but try to figure things out on your own if you’re really interested. Bear in mind that no one told me how to do this, but the information was available. :)
-I do plan to distribute my patterns and embroidery files in the indefinite future.
-My plushies are made with minky fabric. Accessories may be either minky or ultra cuddle.
-Stuffed medium-firm
-I typically make two passes of hand sewing for manes and tails and three for non-swiveling heads for better durability. I have had experience with things coming undone on some pony plushies I’ve bought. It also happened to my earlier Bon Bon right before I shipped her, at which point I declared “that is unacceptable!” :stare: So I try to prevent that. :)
-Smoke free home!


And here’s some old-school DA information that I just left here:
Current Residence: The Republic of Texas (I can dream can't I?)
Favourite genre of music: Classic Rock, Big Band and Swing, Celtic, Soundtracks
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: One that takes a USB drive and has a line out. (A modified a Zone Electronics Portable Mini Speaker)
Shell of choice: An 80s 4U server case, not that I'm using that though, there aren't enough mounts for drives
Skin of choice: Windows Classic (Customized)
Favourite cartoon character: If I had to choose: 1 female, too many choices. 1 male, Odd Della Robbia (who is straight BTW)
Personal Quote: Don't just look at the shiny side of a dirty coin.

Only about 68 hours until my Kickstarter project is successfully unfunded, (or unsuccessfully funded). ^^’ www.kickstarter.com/projects/9… Nevertheless, I intend to fulfill rewards for current pledges as much as backer participation allows. The documentation is pretty much complete and can be found at protean.adamlhumphreys.com/ After this, as already stated, I’ll try returning to Patreon for a second, much more efficient LED Luna, along with some other electronic and plush tidbits. :)
About two weeks left for the #Protean8x2 #Arduino optically isolated FET power control, 16-channels & RS485! www.kickstarter.com/projects/9…

Afterward, I hope to engage in an much easier to make LED Luna and will be sharing the process as a tutorial on Patreon#0! :D
Protean 8x2 posted on Reddit and Twitter. Any help in sharing will be greatly appreciated! :thanks: And feedback too. ^^
Protean 8x2 Kickstarter project is now live!
www.kickstarter.com/projects/9…
If you'd like to make multichannel power control much more affordable for makers, then please back the project. If you know someone who's interested, please share and share abroad! :D
More bang for the non-bucks. ... That is to say, I noticed the galleries no longer have "deviations per page" limits. Before you needed premium to view up to 100 items per page rather than 25 (IIRC). Now it seems you can view as many as the gallery may contain. ... But to be honest, I hate the endless scrolling page syndrome. There's no reference point!

That KickStarter video was great!

There needs to be a GIF of the incandescent matrix in action.

Do it for me. And a few others (like :iconwheelgenius:, :iconfromequestria2la:, and :icondjgames:).

Or if you want me to make the GIF, that would be great!

Well, given my result, I beg to differ. It could use some improvements, but since my campaign wasn't successful, it looks like I'll have the chance. :O
And yes, more GIFs, but I can definitely start with that. :D (I've seen some really inefficient GIFs on Kickstarter several MB large. ^^;)

Awesome!:D

Sweetness! :iconrarityjoyplz:
I was honestly asking because I hope to launch a Arduino compatible, ATmega328P based FET power driver node, supporting all P, all N, or half P/N FETs, up to 16 isolated channels total, (inputs or outputs at the designers' discretion), interfaced with RS-485, (or SPI or I2C since headers are there). My inspiration being pinball driver nodes, (with shockingly higher prices than I would have expected, and not very well documented). ^^ I was wondering if you, or others you many know would be interested in such a thing, or at lest spreading the word about it. :)

Dude! How can you say the S4 finale was a letdown for you?! What about the song the princesses sung, and that epic fight scene?! The show hasn't had that much violence before or since!

Well, not unlike the season 5 finale, and especially the season 3 finale, it was particularly the conclusion of the finales themselves that left notable disappointment for me. :iconfluttershyisshyplz: Twilight somehow becomes the "Princes of Friendship" alicorn with one mere implied pony year of having friends, achieving what was designated as her "destiny," surpassing all ponies in pony history and then in the next we get a crystal castle popping up in the middle of town founded by earth ponies, (though Twilight is from the royal city of Canterlot). The purpose behind these events have not so much as been mentioned and only subtly questioned in the storyline, being held solely by the hand of product endorsement. Yes, the entire show is meant to sell toys, but there's two different workflow models: Forwards, develop and write for a character or environment that will be developed into a toy form the show, (or better yet have both teams working together). Backwards, develop a toy and force it as a major change into the show without regard for story.

Had such things been done for shock value, then the logical course would be to determine the cause or purpose behind said event despite being after the fact. We had a story with the tale of Nightmare Moon being disregarded as an old mare's tale that actually held true. The idea that Twilight couldn't find anything but dead ends about the tree, (and apparently stopped looking), is suspect. Sure, it may be older than the sisters, but for something to have that much weight of force within their own world, (and not form outer space), to be virtually unknown without any previous or current study is all the more suspect. But none of this is the writer's fault, their hands were tied. But I think I would have to lay blame at their feet concerning the season 5 finale.

The last finale had great potential, but because so much emphasis was placed on the inevitable destruction of Equestria, (too many cameos), Starlight seemed evil to a fault, her actions understandably seen as unjustifiable, thus her sudden acceptance equally as uncompelling. Had the result form her actions seemed subtle in comparison to the troubles of her past, (elaborated, thus character development), or her past as weighty in comparison to her actions’ result, (perhaps a history of cutiemark discrimination), then her acceptance would’ve been pretty fulfilling IMHO.

Now, I realize it’s just a show, so I admit I’m a fair bit like season 1 and 2 Twilight Sparkle and Quibble Pants than Rainbow Dash in terms of what I value in the show. That said, the fight scene was neat, but I didn’t care much for the song as it seemed to push the idea that Princess Twilight had a destiny to achieve... again. So I’m not going to look forward to the upcoming finale with preconceived notions so I might be able to enjoy it fairly well. :D

Now as far as premiers go, heh, well, seasons 1 and 2 still hold top rank for me as well. :iconajawkwardsmileplz: But that would be quite interesting if this upcoming finale was much like that of the very first primer. :O
