Ok glue isn't always that great. Some glues damages the fur.
I have done eye patches several ways
1) cut out the whte patch ad sew the coloured patch in before sewng the head. Easier on larger bears.
2) sew the patches onto the fur once head is made.
3) airbrush on using colour same as fur.
It would be better to sew the paws onto the foot pad before attaching to leg.
I can't help but agree with Debbie. I have a dog that if she ever got out would horrify people with how she looks (please read post in bearhugs). to add to her problems her tear ducts do not work which means gunk builds up and it has to be cleaned at least twice daily or else she is blinded by it.
Due to her condition she won't always eat and loses large amounts of weight rapidly.
Honestly we are trying to do everything to maintain her health but if you saw her out you would think I was an awful awful owner. These people may have been cruel but they may also be trying to hold onto a much loved dog when it would be kinder to put them down (which we are still trying to decide)
You did the right thing but judgements shouldn't be made without the facts from both sides. depending on when a phone call is made to me I wouldn't be able to pick up till the following day either. It is good that you check up but on't be too harsh for a dog to live to 15 it had to have been well cared for.
an artist develops a certain look over time.
This is generally because they like a certain thing about their creations and it carries over.
Oddly enough bears that I have dislked have found the homes the fastest.
So a certain shape to the head, the way the eyes are set and face is clipped ends up being their "look"
I am trying to create more realistic dogs and cats so my stlye doesn't show up too much really. My distnctive feature on my bears is heir bent noses LOL.
When I was first learning bears yes took existing patterns and changed them but as I learnt I used my own patterns.

So I am curious. What about prototypes for bears -- did any of you find way back when you started doing this, you had some malformed teddy bears on your hands? :)

Still do. :crackup:
I think what happens is that people try new things on exiting patterns. (whether their own or others)
What happens if I make the nose larger, feet bigger, neck longer? Sometimes it works sometimes you look at the result and don't like it and try something different next time.
We all have creations that end up in the cupboard or bin.
Sometimes with dyes and paints people make the mistake of putting it on too thickly.
Yup done it myself.
Remmber lightly lightly let it dry/heat set then do the next layer. Slowly does it for a permanent setting.
Some even between layers once dry brush it out to keep it soft and ensure it has set.
I know airbrushing is different but I know when painting it on you dip it in the paint and wipe it off until practically no more comes off then paint it on your bear.
