EDIT 7/3/14 He has been sold and is shipping out to his new home in a matter of days!
Edit: Wow I woke up to 1k+ messages, and found out this got a DD? That's really cool, I don't think I'll get to replying to everyone ;-;
I love the flattery but please don't ask lol.
It. Is done.
This beast is a whopping 5 ft from tail to nose, each wing just over 2.5 ft, and is actually quite heavy. It's super stuffed (more stuffing than I normally use (proportionally)) so it actually makes a very comfortable pillow. Beans are in the feet and in the tip of the tail for weight.
This was the fastest plush I did because it's so large scaled. All the tiny details of those other plushes I did are on a bigger scale, so it was a easier. Still, I devoted quite a bit of time to this.
I will openly admit it didn't come out as planned. My plan was for it to be balanced enough to sit up, but the pattern apparently had several flaws, it is now very front heavy. However, I don't really care about that. It lays quite comfortably on my bed and I'm leaning against it now typing this. I may redo the feet/legs, because those patterns apparently were WAY messed up, I miscalculated something in there. The thing about patterns is that you can't see the final result until, well, they're done lol.
While I'm slightly dissappointed, I also know that you can't buy a plush like this. This thing gives the best hugs!
Something about making your own plush makes things even better.
He now claims his bed-spot with my night fury, my articuno, and a few other of my favorite plushes. Too bad for them, he takes up a LOT of space xD
