Pitcher Dragon Again by FamiliarOddlings Pitcher Dragon Again by FamiliarOddlings
My entry for :iconmyths-and-legends: Dragons Around the World Contest.
---

This dragon is needle-felted wool over pipe cleaners. The wings, tail tip, and head crest are craft felt colored with markers and sewed into place directly onto the pipe cleaner armature. The eyes are painted paper clay.

In reality, this guy is about 12 in. long and 5 in. tall with a wingspan of 7 in. To live inside a pitcher plant, he'd have to be a little smaller, but not by much. ^_^

Full explanation and more pictures:

Oh wow a DD! :faint: Thank you so much! :boogie: I'm so ... speechless! I will honestly try to read and reply to all comments, but it will take a while. ^____^ Thank you all in advance, I love you guys! :love: It's so wonderful to find like-minded people who share my obsessions! :D

Pitcher Dragon Again by *DragonBehin is a gorgeous little felt creation made to look like a dragon that would inhabit a pitcher plant. The shapes and colors really make this little guy come alive. ( Suggested by drawntoatee and Featured by MyntKat )
