Gunmetal Barbary Drake Mouth Close-Up by WormsandBones Gunmetal Barbary Drake Mouth Close-Up by WormsandBones
HE IS COMPLETE. (Here's where I'd do a villain laugh if I could.)

We're posting a few different images of him, but we wanted to highlight that the moving jaw works really well in this one. We REALLY wanted to get jaws working, because man, it is SO MUCH FUN to feed him random things. Some poor sod at Fanexpo left their Spock action figure on our table. RIP ambassador. *cough*

This guy is enormous.
His wingspan is about 3' from tip to tip when extended, and he's about 31" from nose to tail. Standing he's a good 15.5" tall at the top of his head (taller if we were counting his wings), and in case you're wondering, you can totally fit your hand in his mouth. I don't recommend it, but you can.

He's fully articulated with ball and socket joints, and has a realistic range of movement. He can lie down any number of ways, stand up, curl up, crouch, sit, walk, stand on his hind legs, ingest anything that doesn't get him first and hang out on your shoulders. His hands and feet all rotate as does his head, and each tine in his wing is individually adjustable. His wings can stretch out, or fold up tight to his sides.
I really don't know how else to say it, but we haven't found a pose yet he can't do... save maybe flying. Just need some fishing line for that one...

This barbary drake is actually the second we've made: the first, much to our shock (and thrill) ended up in an awesome home with someone who even made him his own custom bling. She even made this guy his own necklace, which is pretty sweet.

Barbary drake customs are available - please email us for more info.
Barbary drakes and their design of course belong to Homemade Horrors. :)

Actaully, second question as well- where do you get the materials for your armatures? I've just been using steel wire, but it would be nice to have a sturdier, more resilient armature system.

Oh this is really quite nice. I was wondering, I'm trying to do my first doll with a functioning mouth like this (for a school project)- do you have any tips on the best way to do that?
tarkheki Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
Holy MOLY! Seeing this guy from design to finish.. is ASTOUNDING!!! Those big boff fore arms are such a nice design touch- and seeing how closely accurate your blueprints-to-design are, simply personifies your incredible talent and professionalism! I'm so toting you guys to everyone, you know. Just... perfection.

He is SO cool! Very unique and well done
Almiras Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
He is even more wonderous than I imagined! o___o And he is huge! I love that his mouth is articulated, it adds so much character and posability ^.^ and the wings are beautiful! The colour scheme really suits him too (imagine one of these guys in neon/vibrant colours).

May I ask... is he heavy? :)
Kezra Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Wow, EXCELLENT! I love this shot in particular.
MandieLaRue Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012  Professional General Artist

Beautiful. Great job with the articulation on these guys!

Love the working jaw aspect of him! Sounds like it really would be lots of fun to feed him random stuff, hehe. Brilliant work as always! I know he's been a general WIP, but how long has it taken to make this guy? He's just so big!

Oh my GOODNESS - DO WANT!! I LOVE animals that have reptilian/crocodile style heads... you had me from the sketch, and you've sold me on this deviation! I'm only hoping the price isn't going to smash my hopes and dreams.
