Larry is 13" long from nose tip to tail crook. And he has been a joy to bead. I still have to make his spinal spurs but this is best done after he is stitched to a jacket or bag or however I decide to complete him.
I first saw an embroidered lizard in a 2002 Bead&Button by Laura Holder. Hers was all green and she'd use a t-shirt transfer to bead over. I sketched Larry out with colored pencils and used the sketch as a color guide. Blues of course. Wonderful cobalt (and other) blues!
