Dragon scales and legs

Overall, I think the dragon skin project is starting to show real promise.




The legs and tail each have a strip of wire inside to keep them in position, but other than that they are just paper.  By using layers of tissue impregnated with thin glue, I find I can create a surface that folds and curls in on itself much like a dried animal skin.




I've also had a little play around with some ideas for dragon scales.  I've got large ones in the center of the spine and smaller ones along the sides.  So far, I quite like this arrangement.  Eventually I'll extend it over the rest of the skin.
