trust the process: animal crossing blanket

first in a series!

• Composed on

welcome to a new series(?) i'm calling "trust the process." i'll go through different art pieces and explain how they changed as i made them.

i decided to make a plush animal crossing blanket over the weekend. i ended up making it in two sizes. i'm pretty proud of how it came out, so let's take a look at how it was made!

i decided to make a plush animal crossing blanket over the weekend. i ended up making it in two sizes. i'm pretty proud of how it came out, so let's take a look at how it was made!

i started with nook's face. for some reason this took me a really long time because i couldn't get it to look right? but i got it eventually. the nooklings are the same as nook with different eyes.

i originally put the nooks (plus a few furniture leaves) on a plain cream background with a wavy border, but i didn't like how it looked and came up with the "quilt" idea.

originally i wanted tom to be the only thing not in a square, but quickly changed that.

then i took a rough pass at the "quilted" shapes in the squares. after that, i cleaned them up and refined them.then i boosted the saturation and lightened the color of the border and the grid.

then i boosted the saturation and lightened the color of the border and the grid.

then i had the idea to include a "patch" background for the leaf. i don't know why, but i'm really happy with this decision and i think it adds a lot to the overall design!!

i originally used the same "x" stitches as the border, but it looked too busy, so i changed it to a simpler stitch, as well as lightened the color of the patch itself. i really like the end result!

at the very last second, i rearranged everything, and then i was done!

thanks for taking the time to read this! i hope to continue this series with art in different styles and mediums!

cleaning my depression room

and a room tour kind of?

well, not just today. in reality it took me about a month? i had this terrible habit of starting to clean it and then getting distracted halfway through. i said i'd finish it later, then i'd leave it in a half-cleaned state, with piles of items and clothes everywhere! but i was able to complete it this time, whew! i know it might not look like much, but it's made me feel a lot better.

i cleaned my depression room today!

some clothes also went in this white dresser (and check out my board!)

i started by picking all the clothes off my floor, washing them, and then hanging them up in my closet, sorted by type. i also installed some remote-controlled LED lights in my pitch-dark closet!

i then rearranged ALL of my furniture. now i have a clothing area, a music area, a desk area, and my bed! i also unboxed some stuff that'd been sitting around for a while, like my cricut, mic arm, and shelf!

<- failed attempts at cleaning :( ->

(it was even worse before i started though!)

most of the rest of the cleaning was dividing up small items and knick-knacks into piles and finding places for them. this was honestly the most draining part (aside from rearranging the furniture by myself!)

SO

the last thing i took care of was my desk. i still need to work on some cable management lol! my pc is under construction, so stay tuned for that!!!! i'm really excited mwahaha.

i already showed an "after" photo at the beginning, but here are two more from other angles!
