Which is better? WIP
So I am going to make two version of my black chibi dragon. This first one has the eyes I hand painted with the silver blue paint I mixed myself. I was lucky I caught some day light towards the end of a rainy day so I got a good natural light shot of these guys.
The sun kind of made his horns hard to see against the wood of my bench that has faded into a beautiful silver. I used yarn colors Steel and Black from Red Heart. Steel was a vintage color I picked up at a yard sale so not sure if its still a colorway you can buy.
Besides trying to decide which eyes work best with these guys (hand painted or prepainted) I want to get everyones opinion on something else. I want to get this pattern typed up into a pdf, but I am struggling with deciding on if it should be free or a donation pattern. I am also thinking of making a booklet pdf with all my patterns in it free and pay and having it be a donation one and the only way you can get the Chibi Dragon pattern again it would just be for donations of $1 up to how ever much the donator thinks its worth.
If I go with the booklet, it will be most the patterns on the site up to the dragon one. Any patterns that I publish after, if the booklet seems to go over well, I will bundle up to make a second booklet with an other bonus pattern that can only be gotten in the 2nd booklet. I dont know if this sounds like a good idea or if I am just nuts. If I do make the booklet, it is something that if/when I start doing craft fairs I can get copy's printed to take with me and sell as well.
What are your thoughts, hand painted or prepainted?
Free/Donation and if Donation should I go booklet or does that not even appeal to you.
