just an amateur  
I know you guys are leaps & bounds ahead of me in skill & style, but I wanted to share the first plush I ever successfully made, from original pattern to finished product:

[Mr Bear]

Thanks for looking :)

While I'm on the subject, does anyone know of any good guides to gussets or any beginning guides to stuffed animals that go beyond two pieces of fabric? I'd appreciate it!

Awww, he's very cute! I like him.

I cannot help you with your question, sadly.

The plush artist While She Naps has loads of tutorials for gussets and dimensional shapes that really helped me when I was getting started.

One book you might find helpful is How to Make and Design Stuffed Toys by Rudi De Saringny.

And yes, the internet should have good info as well.
