Pipecleaner Quetzalcoatl by teblad Pipecleaner Quetzalcoatl by teblad
:iconflowerdanceplz:Here it is - the Pipecleaner Quetzalcoatl!

Just so you know, the dark green is a little more vivid in real life :( My photography always destroys my art.

Some time ago, ~Death-Pony7 suggested that I should make a Quetzalcoatl, and I, like... made one. :o I make so little art these days so I surprised myself~

This became a particularly large pipecleaner dragon snake. It is 38 cm (nearly 15 inches) tall, and the total length of the body is something like 120cm, almost 4 feet. However, the Quetzalcoatl is built in such a way that the body isn't poseable =P

Pipecleaner count: As usual I didn't keep track of how many pipecleaners I used, but it should be over a hundred.

Time taken: Um... All I know is that I worked on this on and off for a couple of weeks. :slow: But my dragons usually take 8 - 10 hours.
