The Toothless pattern nobody knew existed XD

This was... fun? While I knew Toohless had some kind of a pattern for a while now I never really looked closer to see it. The fact it's hard to see and only visible under certain lights isn't helpfull at all D: Aku went through both movies muliple times to provide me with enough referencess to paint it XD

First I did a couple of tests just to see how the paint interacted with muliple materials on the sculpture. I loved the dissapearing effect acrylic provided in the end, but turned to be quite bothersome to paint black on black.

Skin Scales-more dynamic

I wanted to have some more dynamic on the skin so instead of painting the scales on I "sculpted" them by applying diluted glue & clay mix with a tube on the surface

Jigsaw tail

Well this was a tedious work :D but the end result was well worth it ^^

in the pictures you can also see the spikes on the left have been trimmed to size becuse originally they were too protruding.

Ataching the wing structure

this part may be a bit tricky but does not present much problems. First wire is cut and put together acording the sketch and in the end attached to the back of the figure.
StuckyTape helps hold things in place until new clay is hardened

Deep soulful eyes

Aku wanted Toothless to have relly vibrant eyes as that is the only part on him that can truely stand out an I realised that my first pair were not really cutting it, so I made a few more to test difeerent tecniques. The last ones were also the best ones and so went with those :)
