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.
And here is your closeup for a better view! Includes bonus ear-whisker.
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!
Oh, that sounds beautiful! Sounds like a wonderful project!
It’s looking great. Nice shading on the spikes.
thanks! the red really makes the gold brighter.
He’s wonderfully, magically iridescent!
I’d never used so many metallics before, but the combined effect is pretty cool.
