Took a whole month... No way am I going to do something like this ever again...
Probably :XD:

Will add the finished dragon photo later.
Anyway. Have fun.

------------------------------------------------
Большой бисерный дракон.
Доделала. На мастер-класс, конечно, вряд-ли тянет... Так, описание работы с комментариями.
Почти месяц времени... Чтоб я ещё хоть раз? Бррррр.
На двух языках - английский и русский.

Есть комментарии, дополнения, критика? Делитесь. Не обещаю исправить, но запомню и, наверное, учту.
Ниже в описании - ссылки на полезные сайты - разные техники, хитрости...

A tutorial for a big beaded dragon.

Comments welcome. I need to know how many mistakes I did, after all.

Suggested materials: Size 11 TOHO seed beads, 0.10mm braided fishing line (normal fishing line, thread - should do too), something to use as filling (big beads/plasitc maybe).
If you want to make large wings - thick wire (something like 1mm diameter copper wire). And thin beading needles. I use a size 12 needle.

Chezsh beads will do fine too. Chinese ones - not sure. If they have big holes and colour won't come off. But japanese (TOHO, Miyuki round beads) are best. Use strong thread - make sure you can't tear it with bare hands. For such a big project - better to use most durable quality materials you can find.

*Some links that might be useful:

Beaded bead with brick stitch (In russian, but pictures are pretty understandable. Useful when making the head.)
Peyote stitch basics - in russian (8th picture there = useful for odd-count peyote or when making turns on the neck.)
Peyote stitch increases, decreases - on the sides, in the middle. In russian.
Tubular peyote stitch. In russian.
Brick stitch basics. In russian.
Brick stitch increases, decreases - on the sides, in the middle. In russian.

Wow! Gorgeous work, looks fantastic!
 I'd like to try, that is the new technique for me. But I don't even know am I able to try something like this. :(
I guess that took a lot of beads to make it (and time of course).
Anyway thanks for the whole pattern! :D

Thanks^^
It can be hard, if you don't have experience with the stitches used. But not too hard, mostly takes long.
