I wound up reworking the wings almost 5 times, the ears twice, and the horns I didnt bother to keep track of how many styles I went threw before settling on these.
I aam still unhappy with the finished item. I think when I make an other I will be tweeking things like the body, tail, legs, and how I go about assembling it.
I was inspired by a old photo I saw a few years ago on the web, where they are no longer being made.
What is your guys opinion?
Should I try cat eyes on the next one instead of my special hand painted ones? They seem to blend in to well with the yarn I used this time, I painted them a sea green hat has a bit of shimmer to it.
Next one I make I think will be a black version with gray wings and horns, I was thinking of painting eyes in a silver or silver blue shimmer but maybe the cat eye pupil eyes (which I can only get in yellow/green so I cant make my own colors) would leave it with a more dragon like look.
I even commented to my husband (before the wings and horns where on) that it looked more like a frog that had its tadpol tale still.
