Soon as I saw Choly Knight’s dinosaur pattern, I knew I had to try putting wings on the velociraptor to see if it would make a suitable dragon. So that was what I did this weekend, and I’m not entirely sold. I think I need to either make the arms larger or leave them off […]

More Christmasks

I’ve reached the awkward time of year where I can’t show any of the stuff I’m working on because they’re presents.

Christmas wrapping
