While I have made many Drat -cat dragons with various cat fabric before this is the first time I have made one from fur. Quite the challenge, but I think my first furry Drat was a big success, I love it….so fluffy. I was able to tweak out one other Drat from the yard I purchased and will finish him sometime in the future, although I may keep it for myself. If I can find more of this or similar fabric I will make more Furry Drats.
I used a fabric marker to add rosettes to the spotted fur, and cut out so that the belly and wings would be from the whiter part of the fabric.
I decided to give the inner wings a more striped pattern, for an amazing look.
I used special order eyes in an olive metallic. Sculpting the head was interesting. All the head pieces were cut on the bias to allow for extra stretch when sculpting.
I designed new feet, that were wider and more paw looking.
I designed new ears to be more cat like and added some whiskers, Diego is so soft and fluffy! Luckily he does love to be petted.
