Here it is, the thing I’ve basically been working on forever. I have had the pieces for the claws, teeth, eyes, and gem baked and waiting and the armature created and sitting in a drawer for almost a year now. It just felt so overwhelming I didn’t feel like I could do it then, but I felt up to it now.

I knew from the start I wanted to make all the armor removable, but I realized quickly that it wasn’t going to happen. At least, not for the head part. But I did manage to find a way to make the rest of it work and I think that doing the armor was my favorite part.

The other thing I wanted to try was flocking the feet and face so it would be furry. After a few attempts, it has a nice texture that reminds me of a sort of rough velvet.

All in all, I'm completely pleased. It was a huge challenge and there was a lot of new stuff to learn, but it was just the thing I needed to force me to step out of my comfort zone.

amazing piece! How did you get your flocking powder to look that good! I'm really struggling with mine :/

I ordered some on Ebay after reading some suggestions on a dollhouse modeling forum or something like that. I tried some from the local store and I tried to make some of my own, but it turned out awful.

Yeah that's where I ordered my from too. I'm using a kind of pva based type of glue to stick it down but the powder keeps clumping, so I tried sticking more on top haha  XD

I heard you could put it directly onto acrylic paint so I tried that at first, but there were huge patches where none stuck so I went back with fabric glue and stuck more down lol

Not poseable fluffy dolls! I would make so many stop motion animations with this.

The armor is wonderfully done and the flocking really helps blur the line between fur and clay. So glad you decided to finish this, it turned out great.

I'm slowly trying to build my own army of WoW dolls and mounts, glad to see I'm not alone :D

Thanks :)

I'd love an army of WoW stuff lol. I try not to keep anything I make, though, as it tends to pile up if I do :(
