Some years ago the doll club that I belong to had a challenge for us. Make a doll from a children's book . So I picked "The Dragon Rider" by Cornella Funk. On a whim I sent him off to Art Doll Quarterly and his picture is now in the "Show & Tell" section on page 117. The magazine sent me a "badge" to put on my blog, lets see if I can figure that out :-) http://stampington.com/art-doll-quarterly
So here he is waiting for me to figure out how to make him come alive from the book cover, seems to be having a nice time as he waits. He is wire over cloth , there is a full wire frame inside his body including his wings. The little boys head is paper clay the body wire and cloth.
