Both of my boys have been harassing me, asking me to design a dragon... and I finally did! I've actually got a second, larger one in the works however that one is going in the box to join a few other projects waiting for me to get enough together to submit for a book proposal
One of my testers named him Snap the Dragon and I loved the name. I'm so glad that she let me run with it
He's 14" long, from nose to the tip of his tail. I chose to not make his wings posable with the help of wire as I wanted him to be totally play friendly. His wings are stiff enough to hold a pose for a bit though
I had so much fun designing him - and am planning on a few more. My oldest was upset that my dragon wasn't fierce so a not so gentle dragon is in my future lol. It's all good. I am planning on making a few eventually.
I chose to use pink eyes as I didn't want him to look too angry - with just enough color to show he's got a little fire in there lol. The next one will have those bright yellow mean eyes per Logan's request
I spent a long time on his wings as I had a picture in my head of what I wanted them to look like and I didn't stop until I got them the way I wanted them. I love the way they came out!
He's also got a great arch to his back. Yeah, I know. I'm pretty retentive lol. I can't tell you how many times I reworked his body until it was exactly the way I wanted him to look. I love the shaping. Okay. I just love this dragon lol. I admit it!!
