So I was bored, rambling through the interwebs.  And then I fell upon This tutorial.  It's not mine, but it's fabulous.  She even has a tutorial on how to make Clay eyes so he looks more real. <3 Anyways.  I don't have a machine, but I have much spare time, so I made him entirely by hand.  It only would have taken two weeks or so, on and off, but I accidentally forgot him on campus over Winter Break, so it took a little over a month.  Also, phone pics.  I have no camera. ._.

Here is his lovely self, sitting all comfy.  He's a little longer than my arm, so maybe....eighteen inches long?

Upside down!  Look at his lovely foots. <3

His wingspan, also around eighteen (maybe closer to seventeen) inches long.

Closeup on wing detail.  By hand, folks.  Ah, the patience....

And his eye.  Made from polymer clay, cooked on an upside down muffin tin, since I have no cookie sheet.  I covered it with a ton of modgepodge.  That stuff is lovely, I use it all the time.

So there you have it.  Toothless.  Made from some fake-lizard-leather fabric from Hobby Lobby.  I was originally going to make him from a more snuggly fabric, but I liked this one when I saw it.  And he's technically not snuggly, he's still a wild animal, with both tail fins.  I couldn't make him with one. ._.

Super cute!  From the thumbnail, it almost looked like a little sea creature at first!  (But I like him the way he is, too!)
