It is so awesome. I also thougt the wingskins were leather at the beginning, but I read the other comments. I'd really like to know how exactly you made the wingfingers inside the skin. I really want to make my own poseble dolls (specificly dragons), but I still don't know exactly how. Maybe I should just start to try XD

No, I'm still in the learning phase of the dolls. I Haven't made one yet, I just started to find the right modelling paste, glue and fur to test all that. I'm planning my first doll next month, but I'll start woth something simple and wingless of course. But when that works I want to make my first dragon afterwards

Really? That's amazing, I thought they were leather or latex coz' they just have such a realistic skin-look. :wow:

lol I meant fake leather I got tons of it. I want to try and make a half aaok half BJD toy but the character has wings so I'm looking up various methods to pull off big scary bat-wings. X3

It's a shame you didn't make a stop-motion video of your flying fox, that would've been awesome to watch. ^_^

Sounds good!! :D
Make sure the materials of the wings are not too heavy, so that the wings can hold the poses. And the wire mustn't be too thin.

Aaah, I love stop-motion!! Maybe I find the time for a little movie some day :la:

Mind if I ask how you shaped the wire inside the wing-fingers? Is it all one wire inside the wing or are there three separate wires for each finger?

Yeah it's the main reason why I think aaok and BJDs are awesome; they're perfect for making little movies with. I tried with my first aaok but the wires snapped in his foot and shoulder after finishing the video. [link] ^^;
