This is the first one that I did from my own pattern, I found a picture of intartia dragon on the net and made my own pattern from it. I found a program and I can post the picture and trace it. I made some changes that I liked and went from there. It took a rrrreeeeaaaaalllllyyyyy long time to make the pattern, but I’m learning and its going faster now. It was made for some freinds that are into dragons. I like the way the body and tale turned out because I wanted to make it look like armor. I took a round burr and just kept making small indentions, then sanded down to 220 grit. It was made out of red heart, black walnut, yellow heart, poplar, teak, cherry, curly maple and ebony. Hope yall like it and any suggestions are alway welcome.

branch, it took about 38 hours to make the pattern, but it was my first and it was a big learning curve. The actual woodworking took about 30 hours because there was a lot of extra sanding due to all the curves. Thanks for your complements.
