silkwing 1 November 05, 2019
here she is! wow...this was an unexpectedly hard project. one good thing, though, the bands came one month earlier than the eta, which was good. i also have a tOn of unused colours which i’ll put forward for another project - a rainwing, who i’ve been meaning to for a long while now. anyway, back to the point.
~ critique time! ~
this lil gurl/guy is a silkwing! as the title suggests lol.
- the body + wings
he/she used moonwatcher’s body design, queen scarlet’s front/back leg and head design, and the wings were my own! they were much harder than anticipated as silkwings’ wings aren’t the same as the ‘normal’ wings. they are a weird wiggly butterfly shape. still don’t think i got the small ones right. :p the gradient pattern was also kinda hard.
in total, i made 7 wings. two small wings that i used for the actual dragon, two that didn’t work, two big wings and one big wing that also didn’t work. tiring ^^; but worth it
- the legs
for some reason, i accidentally made the back legs much shorter than the front ones. honestly, i had no idea how that happened.
- the general physics
you can’t really tell from this photo but this gurl is realllly top heavy. she s a g s. between the four wings and the leg stuff up, her front half is always kinda lower than the front. this is kinda irritating but not major :p
~ overall! ~
this lil gurl/boi was rewarding to make! i urge you to make your own! silkwings, in my opinion, are the prettiest dragon and the world needs more loom band ones! unfortunately there is no tutorial by courtney at this moment. ( also the one she did make was a tad ugly, not gonna lie xp )
if anyone does make a silkwing, please post it! -tb
