hello!

I was wondering if anyone knows how to make a dragon scale pine cone?
I know how to make dragon scale, but the problem I come up with is that when I roll the piece of dragon scale, I have no idea how to close it up by joining both the sides so it is a completely uniform 3-D pine cone!

Any help, pictures, etc. would be extremely helpful.

If you are joining the 'sides' rather than the 'ends' it should be fairly easy just join as you would extend!

Legba,

Thanks for the tutorial link! But actually , I will be joining it side to side, not top to bottom. The scales running vertically( like in the tutorial), but joining it side to side. does that make sense?

Thanks.

basically, what I am trying to do is fold a piece of dragonscale in on itself, and stitch it up.

Yeah that's what I thought. I haven't actually tried it but I would have thought that side to side should be reasonably simple (that of course does not mean easy). Do a practice piece and see.

What you're trying to make is the weave called "Roundscale", which technically isn't a varient of Dragonscale, but rather snakeskin with orbitals around the small rings.

I've found the best format to be a strip 4 large rings wide, then connect the sides to each other with the small rings, then attach the orbitals going from bottom to top.



This photo is (I believe) the first piece of Roundscale

Hope this helps,

Thanks, David!

I will certainly give it a try that way. Thanks for the picture, and the insight.

This topic is 11 years old, so it's not surprising it has dead links.
