bullet pointHow long do the Fleef take you to make?

Fleef production times can vary greatly depending on the size of the Fleef, the complexity of their design, and the amount of time I have to work on them. Some of the simpler Common Fleef or MiniFleef may come together in just a few hours, while larger CuddleFleef or more complex Special Fleef may take a week or more. This, of course, is assuming that I have all needed materials on hand and can work without interruption, which is rarely the case.

bullet pointDo you sell patterns or kits for the Fleef so people can make their own?

No, I do not sell patterns or kits for people to make their own Fleef. Their design and base pattern are my original creation, which took a lot of time, energy, and trial and error to create. I have only a rough base pattern for my own personal use, and it is not formatted in such a way that others can easily follow it. Any deviations from this base pattern, for customs or unique designs, are made from scratch. I do offer Custom Fleef, so people can design their own Fleef and I can create it for them.

bullet pointWhat patterns do you use for your plushies?

All my custom plushies are made from patterns of my own design, often created from scratch to fit each plush. I don't use anyone else's work for my custom plush creations.

bullet pointHow long have you been an artist?

I've been a creative for as long as I can remember... Although if you want to know how long I have been doing artwork as a full-time job, I took that big step more recently in August 2022. Please feel free to check out my Artistic Journey if you want to know more of my story.

bullet pointYou call yourself a "diverse-medium artist." What does that mean?

In art, the term "medium" refers to the material used by the artist to create their artwork. More broadly, the medium can be used to describe the type of art they are creating. For example, painting is a medium. More specifically, oil, watercolor, and acrylic are mediums. Basically, every category of artwork is its own medium.
Calling myself a "diverse-medium artist" is essentially my fancy way of saying that I choose to be an artistic "jack-of-all-trades." I mainly sew and make plushies now, but I also do digital and traditional drawing, painting, sculpting, and stone carving. I love to create and experiment and try new things! I choose not to limit my artistic experience by sticking to one exclusive thing.
While I have do certain artistic strengths based on more experience and practice in certain mediums (my 'primaries', if you will), I absolutely LOVE to stretch my creative muscles by experimenting with new mediums and new creative endeavors. This makes me more versatile as a creator, and often gives me new perspectives from which to approach my primary mediums.

bullet pointWhat drawing software do you use for digital art?

I primarily use Krita for my digital artwork at this time.
When I'm on the go, using my mobile device, I use Autodesk Sketchbook.
If you want to know about other digital drawing tools I have used in the past, be sure to check out my Artistic Journey.

bullet pointAre you a "furry"?

I do not consider myself a furry, though I have often been mistaken for one online and I get along well with those in the community.
I do have a creature/character that I draw to represent myself, much like a "fursona" within the furry community. She is what I call a "Counterpart," a visual representation of my artistic pseudonym and a way to retain a certain amount of anonimity in the online world. You could say she is the mascot for Fanciful Realities.
And while I do have a preference for drawing whimsical animals and imaginative creatures and characters, I'm personally more drawn to represent them using realistic and natural animal anatomy as opposed to the anthropomorphized style that is typical of furry culture.
I mean no offense to anyone who is part of the furry community, it's simply not my artistic preference and I don't consider myself one of them.

bullet pointCan I get prints/stickers of your artwork?

Yes! I have a variety of print sizes and stickers available of my artwork! Please check out my Shop!
