Want to see how I made him? I have over 50 posts detailing his creation on my patreon (available for $1). I also have an advanced airbrushing walkthrough video available to $5+ patrons this month.

He is 21" tall to the top of his horns. His eyes were embroidered with a Bernina 830LE embroidery machine, Madiera Rayon embroidery thread, and Bernina V6 embroidery software and feature gradients. The eyes were designed and digitised by me. His pattern was also designed by me. He has wiring in his legs, wings and tail, and can stand on his own.
This plush has gotta be the most difficult I have ever made. I calculated that almost 300 hours went into making him. It took 16-17 FULLY sewn heads and 8 fully sewn bodies to achieve this pattern. Definitely a record. Patterning that 3d mouth (rather than having an embroidered mouth) was an absolute killer.
I saved this guy as my last commission so I could put as much time into him as necessary. Spyro means so much to me (I have so many nostalgic memories of him) that I wanted to do him as much justice as I possibly can. I really hope you guys love this plush! Any sharing is super appreciated, I put so much work into Spyro, the more people that can see him the better. Feel free to tag anyone who loves Spyro
And finally, thanks so much to his commissioner! Not only for letting me make one of my favourite characters, but for being so patient through the whole process.
