Crochet Dragon-critique requested :-)

Postby alicia1018 » Fri Jan 17, 2014 8:57 pm

Hello All!! So I just designed this crochet dragon, and even though i think its cute, I think i could make it better. What do you think? Should i tweak the feet at all? add horns? Leave it alone? Thanks :)

Sorry for the poor image quality. You can kinda tell it has small arms lol

Oh my gosh, it's adorable!! I am trying to picture it with tiny little nubby horns, but I don't know if I would say they are needed. You could try to make a small pair and see if you like the addition, but he is seriously so cute already.

The arms are a little small, but it's super cute! I totally want to make/buy one. Probably when I have less alcohol in my system, though. Yeah, that would probably be the clever thing to do xD

Very cute :) What is the back like? Does it have a tail?

Thanks :D here is a pic before the wings of the back. So ill work on giving him horns instead of spikes on his back and maybe a spade/triangle shape on the end of his tail?

I love the wings...he's adorable!!!
Just a thought...a little light purple might work well with those colors...maybe a little in the ridges or on the tummy.

Personally, I think this would be a great project to make for Purple Stitch Project!

I think he's great as-is; love the spikes! if anything, I might make the arms a tiny bit longer, but it does give a nice vestigial effect having them small :)

I think he's adorable! He's like a little T-Rex with wings :D
