I finished prototype #1 for the simple plush annnndddd…I’m definitely going back to the drawing board :p As you can see, the shape is pretty significantly off from what I modeled.
I’ve modeled and then directly sewn things before with success, so I know the technique usually works, but I think two major things went wrong here:
I didn’t account for horizontal stretch, and I’m not sure how I should do that in general. This of course made it stretch horizontally much more than intended, partially causing how awkwardly wide it is
Plush will alwaaays bulge outward unless forced by a seam or needle-sculpting to do otherwise. 3D modeling doesn’t inherently account for this; it’ll let you model inward/concave slopes. But when you actually sew it, those inward/concave curves will always bulge out instead. I think this is pretty much what happened with the armpits.
lets talk about more otp supernatural prompts bc im in such a halloween mood today
“i am a vampire chilling in a coffin underground bc i dont know how else to live my life now that im technically dead and ive seen movies where vampires go on killing sprees so maybe if im 6 feet under with no way out i cant harm someone or becoming a killing machine so yeah this is gonna be my life now and but good thing i brought some books idk how much that will hold me off but ill deal and what the fuck who is digging me up i hear and smell them, oh they are totally grave robbers shit wait pRETEND TO BE DEAD like for real dead, cant be that hard right? wow i think im getting away with it, ha! suckers- waiT NO GIVE ME THAT FUCKING BOOK BACK YOU MOTHERFUCKER THATS ALL I HAVE TO KEEP ME ALIVE IN MY DEAD SOUL GET BACK HERE YOU LITTLE SHIT I WANT MY BOOK OR ILL COMMIT MY FIRST MURDER AND IT WILL BE YOU”
