Background story: Char is one of the legendary creatures of Wunderkammer, he mostly resides in the Valley of Fire and Central Highland region, but is seen wondering throughout the land. Char has an immense force, describe somewhat like a hot gravity when one is in his glowing orange field. His body is cloaked in black flames which protect and help him blend into the dark.
I painted a fire lion a while ago but I never made it into a doll, so it's now time to make him come to life. I've made a few fire related dolls in the past, but this time I wanted to do something a little different and turn the flames black. I wanted to use a fur that resembles flames and has a wild texture.
Char is made from thick pile Mongolian faux fur making him incredibly soft, his body is mostly black with and red underbelly, red, orange and yellow colouring on his face. I gave him golden coloured eyes to keep within the colour scheme. I used my trademark black eye tufts and white under eye highlighting.
