Acorn dragons build communal nests in Oak trees , and spend most of their lives in ancient forests, they feed mostly on acorns, but occasionally hunt small mammals. Their coloring and wings have evolved to live in a forest, their wings resemble oak leaves.
Sprig’s body is made form a brown mottled Lycra velvet fabric, matched with a very soft brown Minky fabric for belly, The wings, and inner ears are from a brown Tie-Dye velour fabric.
The wings are top-stitched and wired to resemble Oak leaves.
Sprig has custom painted light-brown eyes, and a mane Faux fur. I used a light tan texture paint for the claws and face nubs. The body has a ball and socket armature, the wings, legs and arms are wired. The limbs are attached with covered button joints.
Approximate measurements: The body is 30 inches measured from the nose, over the head and along the back to the tail tip. Standing height is 12 inches, and 12 inches for the wing span. Acorn Dragons can stand, but when properly trained prefer to be carried, and loved. Sprig has a wooden name tag and a bell
Acorn dragons are not designed to ride on your shoulder , and prefer to be held or carried in a basket. They will be attracted to Oak trees.
I had just enough of this fabric to hatch 2 Acorn dragons, Twig and her sibling are very special.
I was able to finish two Acorn Woodland dragons, Sprig and Sprout . I used up the last of the Oak-wing woodland fabric. Although I do plan on making maple leaf versions, so there may be more small ones in the future.
Darklings are a new type of dragons I have created, I really like the way they have turned out. I have 4 finished so far and should be able to finish more very soon. They have larger wings, bat ears, long finger and toes, and most have red eyes.
Just finished Hemlock and he is listed on Dragontry, my Etsy site
This is Hemlock, I choose this name because he reminds me of being in a deep forest with morning sunlight coming through the canopy, Hemlock is such a magical dragon.
