First of all, just wanted to send out a huge thank you for that DD and everyone who's commented/favorited/etc!

So the sheer number of people asking about commission info for needle felted critters is a little staggering to me, but I think I finally figured out how I'm going to do this. I had a really tough time choosing prices because on one hand, these things are ridiculously time consuming...and on the other hand, if I charged by the hour no one would be able to afford them and that's no fun for anyone. So I'm going to offer two different sizes to start out with...which is again tricky because it's not like I'll be diligently measuring each one and even just going by the longest length isn't really accurate because a rat that is 5 inches long is going to be a lot more solid mass than, say, a felted greyhound 5 inches long. And I had to account for the price of new colored fiber if it turns out I have to purchase more to complete a piece or whatever and also taxidermy eyes for the rodents (I haven't found any taxidermy eyes small enough and of good enough quality to use for canines/felines so I'm sticking to felted eyes on those).

Anyway, prices will be as follows (and do not include shipping which probably won't be that expensive because felted things are so lightweight):

Miniatures (avg 4-5" longest length): $75  
Standard (avg 6-7" longest length): $200  

The miniature size is like the needle felted Brackle rat I posted recently, except a little larger than her - probably next taxidermy eye size up. So quite small but big enough to get SOME detail. The Bernese Mountain Dog I did a while ago is a nice example of that size too.

The standard size is significantly more mass though it doesn't sound it from the difference in inches. This is like the goat I did in the beginning and I'm working on a Golden Retriever on the side right now that I'll post as another example when I finish it. If it was a rat it'd be almost life size (depending on the rat of course). I can get a lot more detail in something that size and it is significantly more time consuming, hence the big price difference.

Now, the tricky part is going to be the wait. I've been maintaining a waiting list for years and working my way through it, slowly adding people as I go along. Luckily my life has suddenly leveled out to a steady and regular schedule so I can work on things more easily, but even still. I've got 4 drawings on my waiting list to do, one of which is in progress and two potential needle felted commissions. So if anyone is really serious about this, I'm just going to tell you know that you most certainly will have to wait. I will do my best to work steadily to get through this list in a timely manner, but as it is I still need to work my regular job to pay the bills so the time I have to work on my art is limited each day.

All that being said, if anyone is serious about wanting to be put on the waiting list or has any questions about anything, ***send me an email*** (burrdoggit [at] gmail [dot] com).  I am SO much better at responding to emails than messages, so that is THE best way to contact me.

Thanks again!

Please read it. I believe one of your drawing has been used, and I'm pretty sure it was without your permission. Help me report these "thieves" and help me find any of the other artists from which they stole photos and drawing, if you know someone...

One of the best grey fox mounts I have seen ever.  You have an incredible eye for this stuff.  Let me know when you are back on here.
