Toothless the Nightfury

My best friend Kelly is absolutely in love with Dragons and even more in love with Toothless from How to Train your Dragon. Thus the challenge began! Now I have never created a dragon before and wasnt quite sure how to proceed in making one, soooo I cheated and found a pattern already made on Deviantart.
Behold! The Completed Dragon!!! Love him in all of his glory!!
I made him for Kelly's Birthday which is in August so I still have plenty of time left over before her big day :)
I misplaced his wings a little to far back but you dont really notice it unless your looking for it and all in all for it being my first dragon and the pattern I used i am very happy with him :)

My First Commission!

I'm so excited! I got my first commission a couple weeks ago and I finally finished up what she wanted me to create! Its nothing to complicated but it will still hold a special place in my heart since it is my first commissioned piece :) She wanted some World of Warcraft Horde bedding but was on a budget. She gave me how much she could spend and what she wanted and I tried my best to make it with in that amount. Shockingly I actually was able to make what she really wanted and still stay in the price range.
Here is the completed project. I made a fleece throw with the Horde emblem on them along with two pillowcases ^_^ Im so excited about the whole thing that it is actually encouraging me to make more things for my shop on Etsy!!!

I hope she is as excited about recieving it as I was about making it!!


This is Scrump! I made her... but her head is too big, so I pretend that a bug laid eggs in her ear and she is upset because she only has a few more days to....
Scrump gave me some difficulty to make, her head was a giant obstacle ironically lol. This was the 5th pattern I had drawn up and created and seemed to be the closest my frustrated mind seemed able to handle at the time. I'm pretty happy with her considering where I started out with but I still think her head is a little too square and her body a little too full.
I decided to make her after finding out that you could only find her in Japan and it would cost at least 30 dollars for a really simple Scrump. I am going to come back to her pattern in the future and refine her appearance so it is more accurate, I'm still a little too frustrated to work on her at this moment and I have a lot of Halloween crafting im doing this year plus a lot of Disney things that I have been waiting to make so i believe all my frustration will be let out by the time I get a chance to adjust her pattern.
