Dragon Update

I like him. :)  I can see my plan working out.  I really hope it does anyway.  There are a couple of serious hurdles that we'll have to jump when we get to them.....like the wings.  Eeek.  And getting the feet to fit in correctly.  And figuring out how I'm gonna get the eyes to work.  (I think I'm making them out of polymer...but not sure yet.  Any plushie artists with suggestions??)

This is his little chin.  Can you tell?  With his toofers sticking out.

And you can already see the shape his neck will take.  (The blue is his dragon lips.  I don't know how much is apparent and how much should be explained.  Ha!  The drawing should help some if you're lost.)

And some dragon nostrils:

I'm sewing the red rims on top of the fuzzy yellow parts and wrapping them with matching embroidery thread.

And in case you're curious, what I'm watching while I'm crafting:

I had never seen it before.  I really liked it.  It was witty and funny and sweet.  I love my old movies.  (Does anyone else in the world still watch VHS besides me?  Ha!)
