Hi, I found a snail by Rrkra Hi, I found a snail by Rrkra
Making eyes from rivoli was fun, so I did it again.

This time I wanted a flat and spiky lizard. And then I was browsing my favourites and saw this:

Bearded dragons seemed like a great idea for the shape.
...Yeeeeahh so much for staying close to the original idea. At least, it stayed a lizard.

Tried to give it a less static pose. It's crawling! And look, it found an ammonite. Because in a book I read, it said they eat snails and dandelions. And that's the closest thing to a snail I had.

He's around 19 cm long. Eyes are 18mm swarovski rivoli.
Main colours used - Toho 222( Dark Bronze), 2208(Silver-Lined Burnt Orange), 22(Silver-Lined Lt Topaz), 83(Metallic Iris Brown), 34(Silver-Lined Smoky Topaz), 2110(Silver-Lined Milky Lt Topaz).

The suggester said: The detail brought in to this, right down to the twists of the legs, positions of the claws and the pattern on its back just blows my mind. A lot of work and love has gone into creating this gorgeous little guy! Hi, I found a snail by *Rrkra ( Suggested by MyntKat and Featured by Talty )

That's exactly what it looks like!

First time I saw one, I thought it was a realistic graphic on this guy's white T-shirt, until it turned it's head to look at me. So cute!:heart:
