Cloudjumper V2 by munchforlunch
Cloudjumper V2
EDIT: He's for sale!  Check out the listing on Etsy.  Or note me for a DA discount :).

He's done!  After making Toothless for my mom's Christmas present two years ago, I took a break before tackling my second favorite dragon in the How to Train Your Dragon series.  Making a bipedal dragon that can support itself ended up being far harder than I anticipated!

Like my first Cloudjumper, he's made out of over 30 pattern pieces, including unique patterns for each of his head fins.  He stands all on his own at 19" to the top of his head, 24" if you count the crest.  His wings are posable using plastic armature, and can support their own weight.  Spread out, his wings are 40" wide.  

There are a couple big improvements for this version.  He has belly ribbing, and his embroidery details have been refined.  The head crest now has plastic canvas as a stiffener, which works much better than three layers of stiff interfacing!  He also has resin claws, wing claws, and spines from DreamVisionCreations, and the orange spines were additionally spray painted for an ombre effect.  He's also stuffed better; you can't see it in the pictures, but he stands better and looks sharper than the first version.

This version of Cloudjumper is for sale!  As far as I know it's the only Cloudjumper ever made with this level of detail, and it will be the only one I sell.  I'm only going to make 3 of these; one for me, one for my mom, and one I'll sell.  If you're interested, this is the only one available.

There are so many more details, check out the detail close-ups here.

Detail shots of Cloudjumper!  I love the stiff head crest fins, the resin claws, and the way they shade from orange to blue.  And it may not seem like much, but that tri-finned tail is a massive pain, and this one came out great!

Cloudjumper V2 - sneak peek by munchforlunch
Cloudjumper V2 - sneak peek
As some of you know, back in February I posted my 1.1 version of Cloudjumper (fav.me/d9rs904).  Nine months later, V2 is done and I'll have V3 done before Christmas.  There was a lot of "on and off" (and a lot of "off"!) in that process, but I also had the freedom to take my time and redo anything I wanted.

More pictures are coming, but this was my husband carrying Cloudjumper back from the photo shoot.  Like a little pet!

In loving memory of Munch. I will always miss him. The stories and jokes he spawned will last forever. If love had been enough to save you, little one, you would have lived forever.

After graduating with my Masters in Materials Science, making plushies covered my rent expenses as I continue to hunt for a job. Thank you to all my watchers, views, commenters, and commissioners for keeping me going through such a rough time. Now that I'm settled, sewing has returned to the hobby it originally was, although I'm looking to release more patterns to share.

I make all my own patterns. I have a pattern for making ponies from My Little Pony as well as Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon in my Etsy shop
