Introducing Jarvis the Quarry Dragon.
I made the armature and sculpted parts of Jarvis months ago and his skeletal form's been lurking beside my tv ever since, awaiting the day when I'd come home with scaley fabric so he could actually gain a skin. XD
I finally got some yesterday when I was out with my cousin and literally sat up ALL NIGHT sewing him together. I watched several series of Still Game, followed by The Mentalist in the later hours of this morning. His legs turned out a lot skinnier than I'd have liked but then again, he's only a young 'un after all.
I think my favourite part would have to be his horns though. I'm definitely making ones like that again for a future doll...
His ears are just folded leather as I prefer the look of that to sculpted ones.
His wings can be folded and extended (although the way I stitched it rather limits how tightly he can tuck them) and his tail is made up of lots of interlocking 'plates' which I really like
He has an older and far more complicated brother still in the armature stage and I can tell you, it's going to take a good long while before he's ready to be shown off!
