And here is what the dragon looks like cut out.
I rubbed out the background he was on so you could see what he looks like on his own.
He needs some definition. I have stitched him to felt in a grid pattern to hold the pieces together better. I used a toning rayon thread and it does not distract from the bits of fabric.
Here he is with a little work to give definition and to help me know what I need to do next for him.
Please disregard the eye for now. It needs more thinking!
