This is somewhat delayed, since I fell ill and then got swept up in the ghost project, but here it goes.

The other stallholders were very friendly, and gave me lots of advice, the main thing being to keep trying. There weren't many people there and apparently this improves later in the year. The main other thing was, as expected, most people weren't that interested in marine invertebrates or prehistoric fish, so for next time I am aiming to make some more tetrapods (since having at least one mammal won't hurt)

I did get some interesting comments though, and several people jumped backwards or shuddered when they noticed the insects. The fruit flies generated a lot of confusion, people recognised that they were fruit flies but couldn't quite understand why anyone would want to make bead versions of them.

I have another craft fair on the 3rd of October, so hopefully I will be able to make a few more things for then.

In other news, I am opening requests since I need more motivation to draw. All the art I have been doing lately has been Revelation Space fanart, which I have been unsure about posting.

I am a biologist with an interest in the creatures of mythology and folklore. When I first joined dA I mainly drew dragons, but now I mostly make bead sculptures of living and extinct animals. I am also very interested in creature design, and I write occasionally.

A Carboniferous Creature by Fluffysminion
A Carboniferous Creature
This is Meganeura, the griffinfly most often used as the example of a large prehistoric insect

This was suspended for far too long, the body I rushed through and was very pleased with, but the wings took forever to get around to. And then when I did finish it I didn't feel any desire to photograph it, and then i didn't want to tidy up the photos, so i thought I'd post this as is rather than wait a few more months for me to get around to correcting the exposure and so on.  

Size 11 seed beads, bugle beads, large round beads, beading wire of various sizes, beading thread.

Chameleon by Fluffysminion
A commission for someone offline, and one that I am very pleased with. The feet and legs move and can grab things, and the tail is prehensile. If I'd had a bit more time the eyes woulfd be able to move as well, but I decided to not go all out on tiny details and to make sure I finished it in a sensible amount of time instead.

Dear Fluff, 

It's been so long since I've talked to you! I took my time in going through your gallery and wow, have you come such a long way! I remember seeing your first tries at beading and seeing you here now is simply amazing! Not only has it improved tenfold, but your drawings and digital pieces have improved greatly as well<3 It's so nice to see how your art has grown and developed, and I hope that the future brings so much more for you! I miss being around dA and talking with you and the other friends I've made, but this place doesn't quite seem like home anymore, and I'm sure I've lost the majority of my audience too, in my absence. All I can say is that I miss you, and that as the years go on, you only continue to move up from here! Keep up the hard work, chickie! I'm so proud of ya!

Hugs and well wishes!

P.S.: I may revisit Fluff soon! If I do, I'll be sure to note you with the drawing! I sorta actually really miss drawing his spiky behind!
