Turtle by Rrkra Turtle by Rrkra
Not only dragons. But still, a reptile :fuzzydemon: Made it this night.
Loosely based on a red-eared turtle. Very loosely :XD:

Actually timed how long it took - 7 hours.

Turtles are awesome. Especially alligator snapping turtles. Chomp.

----------------------
Beads: Miyuki 335 (Fuchsia Lined Yellow), Toho 83 (Metallic Iris Brown), 246 (Inside-Color Luster Black Diamond/Opaque Yellow Lined), 457 (Gold-Lustered Green Tea) and Matsuno 6-cuts (strange shiny greenish-gold-brown colour) for shell.
Toho 49 (black) - eyes and claws, 323 (Gold-Lustered Olivine) - legs, head and tail, 45 (Opaque Pepper Red) - 'ears'.

Eh, maybe, if I ever make another one =D
I could try to explain without photos, but my explanations don't make much sense, they are only good to give a general idea XD

That sounds amazing, and although I won't pester you for it, I would like to ask where did you start from when you made the top part of the shell? That's what's making my brain hurt the most.

Top and bottom of the shell are flat circular peyote. Oval shape is because I only did increases on opposite sides. =D
I think you can see it if you download the full-sized image and look at the last photo - the start is four beads in the middle of the shell.
