Ahhh, the amount of times I've puked neon orange all over myself, good times! I like the hoody plushies... it would be cool if they had long tubular arms in the air so it looked like they were dancing like hooligans.
That top portrait scares me for some reason. Maybe it's the sinister look on her face and the huge pony tail.
I think the unicorn looking creature would make a sweet plushy.
I love the plushies, those things are so freaking cool looking, I love the owls, I love the one with the giant teeth, I love the one that looks like a bear with honey all gunked up in his mouth, the execution of them is awesome but I think the concepts are what make them shine.
I think your rendering of hair/fur could benefit from better grouping of light and dark masses, right now the hair in most of your drawings seems flat. maybe look for the darkest darks and the lightest lights in the fur and render according to those. I think this would give your animal drawings a better sense of form.
I really like that you're getting creative with the plushies (patterns, double-sided, etc)! Make sure to check out the latest issue of Computer Arts Projects... they have a tutorial on how to do plushies! It might be stuff you already know but there might be something new to you.
stupid fucking photobucket... doesn't even warn me about the bandwidth
But hey! Look at all this comments! How exciting.
DeathChalupa: You should totally make one! The first one is always the hardest to make, but when it's all done & stuffed, you feel so accomplished haha.
Blaz: Yeah, hahah, I try to give them all names to fit their "personalities". I don't live at home, I'm in a dorm, so my desk is covered, I don't even use my desk cause there's absolutely no room. I work & do my homework on my bed haha.
agelaos: hahah, awww, thanks! I will make millions! & get arthritis at 30! yesss.
sketch: thanks! I was looking on their site, but all I saw was articles on how to make vinyl/clay toys, not soft ones. I always wanted to make those, too. I just need to up my painting abilities a bit.
Dandilion: the moose is on sale in my shop if you want him unfortunately, he's the most expensive on it 'cause he's really big.
Dannysketch & Kian: hahah, thanks so much guys! !

The snow took fucking forever. I hope I win!
Made this collage in 2D design a couple weeks ago. My teacher sucks, my collage rules!
Two Artists trading cards I doodled during Art History, haha:

It's gonna be the background, which I'm completely redoing next class. Her face isn't done yet either.
Shitty scan, cause the paper was too big for my scanner. =( sorry!
