Arcanine by ArtisansShadow Arcanine by ArtisansShadow
I know my pictures haven't been the best as of late, but maybe I will be able to afford a new camera once my grad school job begins in a few months. It just bites that these guys won't be in my possession by the time I acquire one. :(

Arcanine--- the jagged striped canine everyone was absolutely obsessed with back in those elementary school days. Even with the advent of 568 new Pokemon, I think he still has his followers. I like him, though I am a sucker for the hardcore, animalistic Pokemon. :)

I will not lie, when my friend asked me to make an Arcanine, I about had a heart attack. Forget the stripes, how the heck was I to do the face? It is covered in fur!

 It was apparent from the start that the old brushing-of-the-yarn technique was what was going to need to be utilized here, and once I started figuring out how to place everything, the face was no longer a problem. He is now uber soft, in fact.

Arc here  is 15 inches long and 5 inches tall. Not a bad size. I actually am glad he wasn't much larger, being a prototype and all. I had to undo somethings and start again, and were he any bigger, I don't think it would have gone over as well (I may have just burned all the yarn =O ). In the end, I am happy with his outcome. My only complaint is that I know his stripes are off and it drives me insane. I was staring at this little poster I have as I was making the plush, and the Arcanine image was at an awful angle. I think my guesses at the size and position of each stripe may be a little off. He was a learning experience, and I wouldn't mind one day trying another.
 

Thanks for reading. I have a ton of Eevees to make now, ha ha.

I have reason to believe that you do not, in fact, have a mustache that you can twirl. :P
