Commission work for  :icondarkoverlord13:  She asked me to make a poseable doll of her beautiful character Kozmotis.

These are some of the pictures I used for reference:
Vone Kozmotis   Outline Sketch for an Armored Imperial

This guy is one of the most challenging dolls I've ever made and he took forever to complete, specially because it's the first time I make a doll mostly of faux leather , but I'm rather proud of how he came out ^^ 

The body is fully hand-sewn, made of faux leather and faux fur and filled with pollyfill so it's soft. The faux leather fabric gives a more suitable texture for a scally dragon skin, and also allowed me to paint the different colour gradients and even the small details on the wings. All the scales along the underbody were cut and sewn individually and I also cut and attached a lot of tiny scales to hide some of the seams to make it look more natural.
The body is almost fully poseable thanks to a ball and socket plastic armature, and the wings have a wire armature inside but the material don't allow them to be folded, only gentle bent.
The head is sculpted out of polymer clay and epoxy clay for the most delicate parts like the horns, and the owner decided to go with my pre-made dragon resin legs to lower a bit the price and have an extra durability. Everything is painted with quality acrylic paint and sealed.
We decided to make the horns shorter and go without the whiskers.

Aaand... I forgot to measure him xD but I think he was around 90-100cm in full length and about 30cm tall at the head. 
Here's a photo of him on my mother's hand for size comparison Kozmotis the Imperial Dragon


Hope you like it! ^-^

Wow!  This is beautiful!  I absolutely love your use of the faux leather.  It is really effective, especially with the belly scales and the tiny spattering of scales to hide the seams.  The wings are also awesome!

Okay, that is amazing.

Great work. That must've taken quite a while to make.
