Number 10! I've hit double digits!!

I wanted this guy to be extra special, I also wanted to see how feathers could be incorporated into the designs because, as you may know, I looooove feathers :D I have lots of them too.

He has posable whiskers! How cool is that? Too cool. His mane has teal, lime green and stripey green feathers attached to it too to give him some flair.

I actually started this guy with the intention of using some bright pink feathers I have. *scenceable requested something pink, but I sat there with the pink, lime and teal feathers in front of me and couldn't bring myself to do it! I'm just not confident with pink, haha. Don't worry, pink fans, I'll try again soon. ;)

He is up for sale on my Etsy. [link]

I also do customs of these guys. It isn't on the chart but you can request whiskers and feathers if you want. :>

Thanks for looking!

Ps for those of you keen for something different I have some gryphon/gargoyle dolls in the works, as well as a 3ft long dragonfly-winged commission that I need to take photos of. :) Keep an eye out!

Greeeeeeen! ^^
I really like the two-tone black and green ones - they can look really corny on some dolls if overused but these look spot on. :D

truth! It was using them on Ikitomi that showed me how they can be made to look great when the design is right

You should do one with a 'poison' theme - they'd look smashing. XD

Totally do that! I was thinking that it looked more like Aiden...I think that was his name. Also pink is easy as long as you don't go OTT with it use white as a filler and the pink will click into place even if its neon pink. Personally if there was to much pink it makes it look a bit tacky, but that's just my thoughts :)

Aiden yep, he was awesome...
I used pink on a kirin for a commissioner once and it was just like you said, using white and pink together was okay. it still scares me though lmao!

He's adorable! I love the mix of teal and lime green. And no worries with the pink, I'm on a strict no buying things rule at the moment and it would be too tempting! :XD:

Haha, you should come visit my house. Everything is pink. Well, I guess there's some purple and blue spattered in there too. Even my pots and pans are pink! I think that sort of environment would help boost your pink confidence :XD:

I think right now I'm tight because I'm saving everything I make for the art show in July. After that I should be back to my normal impulse-buying self :eager:
