Nice! I stumbled upon this while browsing hoodies on DA (and thus got to enjoy the rest of your gallery! ) It caught my attention because I'm actually working on my own druid hoodie as well, though mine is currently a tauren kitty. However, I'm planning to do a Nelf boomkin as a gift for a friend of mine. I really like your idea for the medallions and plumage. I'm still figuring out how complex I want to make mine, and I'm planning on doing both little antlers and pointy ears.
Yay laser chickens! My bear rear saves you all from your starfall aggro!
That means a lot coming from you, Evion. I've been a fan of your work for the longest. Though I will say that it has been pretty hard coming up with the medallions for the hoodie, so I might end up making them out of fabric.
Yeah, I'm trying to keep design stuff pretty simple since I'm aiming to have several hoodies done for Christmas. My friend has some fabric medium that mixes with acrylic paint to make it work on fabric. I'm hoping that will work for doing simple shoulder emblems. Debating whether I want to do a double layer of "plumage" fabric or just leave it more implied... Will see once I get to that one! XD
I'll have to look for some nice beads for the drawstrings. I was thinking along similar lines to what you've got there, or just simple ones with moon/sun designs. Probably try to find some wood/ivory ones for my tauren druid.
Oh! If you do ever get the ambition to work on this, fabric.com seems to have the best selection of sweatshirt fleece I've found. Their purple is decently dark, rather than overly bright.
This looks pretty sweet. I thought at first it was a sketch for this Canadian group that does custom hoodies, because if you submit a design to them, it might win and then they'll make it for free.
Besides that, I don't know what that character (npc?) is but it looks pretty sweet. I'd suggest something stiff, maybe wire, for the antlers, and as for the discs, do you want them raised or just a flat design? I think it'll look pretty awesome when you finish it.
I thought that it wasn't a playable race in WoW and so I thought it was an NPC race or a monster, or something. I haven't really gotten very far in WoW so I'm sure you know more about the world than I do. That's what I was trying to say, sorry about the confusion.
I made a night elf kitty hoodie a few years ago for Halloween - bought the hoodie, and then put on ears, shoulder patches, etc.
Fleece works really well but I didn't think it would be stiff enough for the ears, so i got other fabric to use instead. In retrospect, I should have just used fleece for all of it and I think it would have worked out fine. Be picky about your fabrics, too! And spend the money for better stuff if you can!
