Newborn forest dragon spirit by LisaToms Newborn forest dragon spirit by LisaToms
Did you ever wondered how dragon spirits look when they're newborn babies? :)

Now you can see a playful one I found alone one day I was walking in the forest.


This is the real/original size of the dragon spirits. As you can see the size between babies and the adult ones isn't proportional. This is because when they grow acquire the faculty of reduce their size to hide in their habitats easily. Dragon spirits are usually very shy and paceful creatures that don't want to be seen.
They're only in their real size when have to protect their cubs.

This is the secret doll I announced some time ago in a journal entry! ^^

I started sculpting this new model as a remake of the chibi dragon spirits because I wanted to discontinue them. I wanted to make a cuter and more chibi version, but it turned out too different so I decided keeping the chibi dragons for now, and that the new ones would be a newborn version of my dragon spirits. Because of this I made his proportions to look more as a baby ( smaller paws, antlers as nubs, smaller ears, etc).
As you can see, this baby is kitten based because my casted dragon spirits will be more feline based too.

So this is my latest casted doll, and probably I'll put my first ones for sale in my etsy shop within two weeks.
This baby's head and paws are casted in resin, painted with acrylics and sealed for a better durability. Body is hand sewn combination of faux furs and polar fleece for the belly, filled with stuffing fiber and sand to give him weight and a good balance.
This one is semi armatured. This means it have an armature inside from the head to tail tip so the spine is completelly poseable, but the legs aren't.
This dolls are the first ones I use a plastic armature. This kind of armature is specially made for poseable dolls and won't break as wire may do.

The first ones for sale will be semi-armatured, but I'll be offering two more options in the future: non-armatured ( like the chibi dragons, to have a more realistic flopyness), and completelly armatured, including the paws ( I'll also be offering a set of paws to do standing poses).
Probably the non-armatured and semi-armatured will be the same price, but the completely armatured ones will be more expensive.

I still have to figure out the price for them, but I suppose that semi-armatured premades will go for around 120 euros.


I'll upload more photos of it in different poses soon  :)
