Baby Dragon and Egg by Kridah Baby Dragon and Egg by Kridah
To celebrate that Game of Thrones is finally back, I decided to make a dragon egg and a little baby dragon to go with it! :dance:

The egg: I bought a two-part plastic egg and added scales to it that I made from FIMO clay. Once the clay was hard, I painted the egg with acrylic paint using regular brushes and a toothbrush for a little splatter. Finally, I applied a layer of semi-gloss varnish for protection and glossiness.
The dragon: The dragon was crocheted entirely without the use of any pattern. I never use patterns when I crochet because I like to create my own original pieces rather than creating a copy of someone else's, and I don't make my own patterns because I can't imagine that would go very well. I just start crocheting and try to shape it the way I want it as I go (sometimes it takes a few tries). A lot of sewing was needed on this one as well. I decided to add wires to the insides of its legs and wings, which allows it to stand, and for me to wrap its wings tightly around its body in order to fit it inside the egg. The eyes are glass eyes that I bought, and the yarn I used is acrylic. I applied some superglue to the claws and spikes, making them feel spiky and hold their pointy shape. 

I don't know how many hours I spent on this, but I dare say it was quite a few!

I made this as a surprise for a fellow Game of Thrones fan, and this person has decided to name the dragon Edwart! (This person is not known for his great spelling skills, but 'Edwart' it shall be! Edwart the dragon!)

They worked really hard on it. The fact they could make it is astonishing. You try? Maybe? They crochetted the dragon without tutorial too.

Witolman Featured By Owner May 11, 2016
I said the dragon was ugly, not anything about it's quality. When you look at it as a crochet it's really well made, but when you look at the dragon itself it's hideous (remember: hideous=/=low quality)

ps just because I couldn't make something like this, doesn't mean I'm not allowed to dislike it

You shouldn't be rude about something that YOU could probably never do. If you think this dragon is bad, then why don't you just SHUT THE FUCK UP and mind your own business? People have feelings.

"why don't you just SHUT THE FUCK UP" "People have feelings."
Looks like my feelings don't matter in this situation. Kinda hypocritical.

Pshhhh. You know what I'm talking about. You know exactly WHY I'm telling you this. And YES, I DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR FUCKING FEELINGS because of the fact that you said a handmade dragon, that probably took a VERY LONG TIME TO MAKE, was really ugly. Some people work hard on their stuff. It's very nice that you think its bad. If you don't like it, then why don't you keep those comments to yourself.
