Dragon Scales: Part 1

DSCF2974

I added a second horn and a whole lot of scales and spikes. At the top right you can see that before stitching each scale or spike I have to outline first so the edges are padded and have a smooth curve. You can also see that I have an awful lot more scales to go.

  1. Seeing your progress is inspiring for me. I am slowly hand embroidering a bed sized Peacock. In reality, I have not picked it up in about 6 months…but the weather is cooling down and it will be brought out again soon. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful creative day!

    It’s looking great. Nice shading on the spikes.

  3. He’s wonderfully, magically iridescent!
