kishmet @ 03:00 pm: Unicorns
Well, I have a lot of time on my hands these days, being under semi-house arrest and all. So I've been playing around with new designs, and I found one that I really like.

They're on this page in my LJ gallery. I'm linking to the gallery as opposed to the individual pictures because the thumbnails are actually clearer. XD;;

Anyway, the unicorns are very delicate, more so than most of my dragons. They're fantastically poseable, and they stand better than some of my other four-legged creatures. This is because I tried using 26-gauge wire instead of 28-gauge for their back legs, which makes their back legs sturdy enough to hold however I put them. Ryomacorn is rearing and everything! In case you couldn't tell, I'm slightly excited about this new development. XD My Pegasus stands up all right, but he's a little wobbly because of his skinny little legs and his enormous wings. I might give him 26-gauge back legs too, if I ever feel like going through the trouble of replacing them.

Oh Ryomacorn is positively gorgeous. HE CAN REAR BACK. <3!

It's a bit odd to see how thin the legs are, but I got used to them after a while. Cannot wait to see Pegasus. :D

...LJ just sent me this comment. akldjg wtf LJ.

I love Ryomacorn's rearing...ness! I had to work with him for a bit to find a way to make his legs strong enough, but it worked out. Their legs are super-thin, aren't they? Haha, any thicker and they look ridiculous, but they're all spindly now. <3

(And by the way, here's Pegs. :D)

Oh LJ. *sigh*

I think Ryoma turned out well, he's adorable I have to say.

Pegasus looks absolutely wonderful. First I thought he looks like something right out of an expensive store, like those glass sculpture places. Seriously! So very shiny And the wings. And the ears! *___* I want to pet him.
