Fire Salamander by LisaToms Fire Salamander by LisaToms
I made this guy at least a year ago, but never found the day to show him here because he isn't finished yet.
But I thought you might be interested in seeing these gecko-like creatures that will be available in the future, so I took some photos of it ^-^

Actually, these were thought to be fairy dragons and will have insect wings. This one will have a cicada orange-ish transparent acetate wings (I have these already printed, just have to buy the dimensional adhesive to make them look more real and attach them to the doll. It's the first time I'll be making transparent fairy wings, so I still don't know if they will work in this size or if they will turn out too delicate or fragile >< so wish me luck with them!)
So for now this guy is just a fire salamander xD

I will also use the molds to make just fanatasy coloured geckos, without the wings  :)

Hope you like him!


* This is my first reptile doll ( excluding the dragons), but the fact that I don't make reptiles so often doesn't mean that I don't like them. It would be awesome to get some reptile doll commissions in the future! Just saying ;) *

------
Head and paws are casted in urethane resin from an original sculpture,  painted with quality acrylics and sealed.
The body is soft, hand-sewn polar fleece fabric embellished with orange beads ( sewn one by one over the fabric).
He's fully poseable due to a plastic ball and socket armature.
And he's way bigger than real geckos, about 40cm long ( including the tail)
-----
Not for sale yet ( and I still have to set a price)

Wow how much Would that cost if I commissioned a pictus or leopard or crested gecko that is around actual size. You know just for reference purposes. I have 5 geckos right now and a bearded dragon

The hand sewn beads is such a brilliant idea for this doll. It works out perfectly to get the right look!
You did such an amazing job on the sculpting details of the head and feet as well. The shape of the mouth and eyes is great!

OH MY GOSH this is amazing and adorable ;u; You did really well on the shape of the body and the hands and face (which I guess is the whole thing). This little guy is irresistibly adorable and I can't wait to see what he looks like with wings. Are the little orange bumps on his body tiny beads?

I was very inspired by leopard geckos to make this doll as you can see ;) 
As this one took me longer to make because it's the first prototype, I need to make more to set a price. But I guess they will be around 200€
