This is a commission for a harpy eagle, pangolin and dutch landrace goat combination! What a cool cross! I wasn't sure about how to do the scales until I was browsing and saw
's incredible pangolin toy: demiveemon.deviantart.com/art/…
It gave me the confidence to tackle all those scales AND sew them out of suede! If she had the gumption to make that entire pangolin from suede then I could hardly turn my nose up at sewing 40-odd scales on. ^_^ So thank you demiveemon
Another cool thing about this doll is that back when I made one of the first dolls
was a huge help describing methods to me, and even has a slideshow of WIP pictures of a gryphon she made as an Alice in Wonderland tribute. I swear I studied that video, watching it again and again, desperate to learn all the techniques! Anyway one of the fabrics she used for it was this beautiful curly sheep wool fur and I have been DESPERATE to get my hands on some ever since I saw it. Can you imagine how excited I was when I saw my usual fur supplier had new stock in and one was THE beautiful curly fabric?! So don't be surprised if a whole plethora of dolls appeal with this curly fur, I absolutely love it.
More airbrushing... I wasn't sure about colours until I painted the copper edges to the scales (one of the last things I did) and suddenly everything came together.
