Smaug Custom Plush for :iconnitefyredragon:

MORE PICS
sta.sh/21ppbqhpt6g6

:bulletyellow:  Smaug is made from crimson minky. He is 29" tall to the crest of his neck. 

Process 
Where to start...
His entire body has been meticulously airbrushed using several hand made stencils. His head was sculpted entirely out of foam and then a minky 'sleeve' was fashioned to sit over the foam 'muscle' (the only way I could keep those specific muscle groups visible).

His eyes were casted with resin and the eye design was drawn in photoshop and glued to the back of the eye. Being resin cast his pupil has a 'follow me' effect so it always looks like he is staring at you. Orange LEDs were cast into the eyes, with a grand total of 17 orange LEDs wired into his eyes, mouth and chest that run from 2 battery packs hidden in internal pockets.

His teeth were all sculpted from translucent sculpey clay, embedded into clay 'gums' and glued into his jaw.

His body is held up by pvc piping that runs through his wings and back (the only thing strong enough to hold him). He has wire in his neck and wings for added support.

His chest and neck were given the translucent scale effect by using a soldering iron to singe through the minky. I then reverse applique'd sparkling angelina fibers to fill the holes but leave them transparent so the leds would be visible. Several locations on his body were scarred using very precise shallow burns in the minky, again using the soldering iron (primarily his face, neck and back). 

Please do not ask for the pattern, under no circumstance will I be giving it out. (I couldn't even if I wanted to due to the way I made him)

Comments
:bulletyellow: Oh man.. this plush broke me. Never has a plush made me want to tear my hair out so much XD. I am SO proud of him, and on the same page SO thankful he is done. Every element that could be complex with this plush was at the limits of my abilities. I had to push myself with every aspect. I hope you all love the result as much as I do. 

PLEASE zoom in to check out his details!

The majority of them are commissioned by buyers so they go off to the people who paid for them. Occasionally I keep some for myself, or make some just to sell on DA
