This Has been something I've been working on for 6 months. He's based sort of heavily on the painting from a dragon book by Graeme Base's. You can see that picture here:[link]
I made a painting on a friends guitar for her Christmas present and this crocheted piece is based on it.
He was entered in a challenge on craftster but I can't remember which one at this point. I think based on a painting. I was in like 3rd or 4th place.

I used Wal-mart's Mainstays yarn which is discontinued as well as some simply soft for the wings and tounge. The horns are silver embroidery floss and one strand of crochet cotton held together and crocheted with a tiny hook. The embroidery on the wings took at least 3 hours if not 4.
