Dragon sizes

The original standing dragons were sized to fit in my 5×7″ hoop. Some while back I decided to revise the design and one thing led to another, and I had baby dragons: chunkier legs and bodies, shorter muzzles, slightly different wings, and looking up slightly so they could have cute pairings with the older design: […]

The return of the Love Dragon

Last year, I finished what ended up being the last of the velvet art dragons: the one that’s alternated between “Love Dragon” and “Dragonheart” in my informal naming scheme. It is a wholly ridiculous beast, because fuchsia is a wholly ridiculous color, and my Etsy customer base clearly agreed and… didn’t buy it. In their […]

Despite the size of the thing (I got the 24×24) a horizontal picture of this many dragons captures the sides of the box. And that’s even when shooting 4×3. While technically probably for now my Etsy shop is exempt from […]
