Sebian has a deep curiosity about the world. A “hunger”, if you like. In fact, he’s really very interested in food. Cooking, as well. Or rather, he likes to do the sampling instead of the cooking. Such is rather common of a young bead wing dragon, since they’ve got an awful lot of growing to do.
Yeah, “bead wing”. What else am I gonna call him? The only plans I really had for this one when I started were 1.) the yarn color, and 2.) that he was going to be wyvern-styled. Everything else was kind of just… what happened. I’d planned to do the wings completely differently, too. I really, literally, cannot explain what happened—but I’m not complaining. Even if the wings did take me four days and more beads than I ever want to count.
And yes, he is fully poseable, fully flexible, and fully scratch-under-the-chin-able. For detail shots and more pictures, please head over to Sebian’s gallery page.
(And he just so happens to be looking for a good home.)
Chauncey’s a shy fellow who seems to prefer quiet activities like puzzles. (You don’t think chocobos can like puzzles? Shows what you know.)
The product of ten full days of work. There was a moment of panic when the yarn I’d been using for his legs and feet disappeared without a trace and seems to have been discontinued and sold out everywhere, so… I tried another kind for the beak. It actually worked better than expected, plus forced a slightly new method for the toes. Well, different is good.
Another giant chocobo, this guy sits at just short of 18 inches in height to the very top of his crest (while sitting, as he doesn’t stand), 10 inches from chest to tail, and 9 inches at his widest point. 10 days. Sheesh.
Anyway, he’s also available for sale, in case you were wondering.
Dangly Tachikoma Necklace! Proof that I am incapable of taking time off. Description:
Who wouldn’t love a tiny little Tachikoma looking out for them? I did not plan this. I know I say that a lot, but I mean it every time. I just saw the back bead, which happened to be next to the round bead, and… yeah. I refuse to try and explain how much of a pain it was to get the wire to work exactly like I wanted it to, but I succeeded and it’s over now and that seems really important. And, well, Tachikoma!
So I had the little Tachikoma, right? Surely that was over and i could get back to other things. …And then somehow the idea of making a whole necklace for it happened, and… I don’t know. I went through my beads, and there was this utterly gorgeous blue agate that worked perfectly. So. Yes. That’s several more hours of my life, putting that thing together. I do hope it’s worthy of the Major herself.
It’s also available for sale at the Shiny Things Etsy shop.
