A freakin' dragon?!?  Somehow the moniker "Sparky" just doesn't seem to cut it once dragons are involved. wink WOW, way to go!

Yeah, that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by...

Re: Some Random Whips!

ahahah thank you Scott! Dragon even rhymes with Brandon hmmmm tongue

But yeah, I'm hoping to potentially do other animals, and probably words too~

Re: Some Random Whips!

Hey everyone, I have two new whips to show! :3

First is a basic 16 plait red and purple whip, a short 5.5ft commission by a performer!~

Re: Some Random Whips!

Beautiful work, Sparky! And that handle on your 'personal' whip is absolutely amazing! Golly!

106

Re: Some Random Whips!

Really great, wow!  I love the dragon!

Inch by inch.

107

Re: Some Random Whips!

Yes, such a good handle. Loving your work, Brandon.

One, two, three... "WOOF!"

Re: Some Random Whips!

Very nice, Sparky, the dragon whip is so cool. Your usual meticulous work on both. You guys are inspiring and intimidating at the same time.

Re: Some Random Whips!

Very nice work Sparky.
The dragon whip is just wicked sick. smile
Great job.
How does it crack.

Beatiful work Sparky!
Those boxes really seem to work with thinner cord.
Well done!!

Re: Some Random Whips!

I love that dragon whip!

Re: Some Random Whips!

Wow! Amazing job man! You are one of the best at patternwork.

Re: Some Random Whips!

Great work, now I know why they call you the "fancy pattern king", impressive work of yours.

116

Re: Some Random Whips!

Thank you very much everyone! ^_^
It's quite humbling to be praised for my patternwork haha

Mark - the work shown in WB always is inspiring! Just gotta find your own style and perfect it smile
Ron - the whip was actually a bit stiff, and so was a little difficult to crack at first. At the moment, it's working very well, though it still needs some breaking in!
Jyri - I agree, I can't believe how nicely the boxes appeared!~

Again, thank you everyone! I wouldn't have improved this much if I didn't join WB and was inspired so!
Now that I've done that 32 plait handle, I can't wait to play with more patterns in the future~

Re: Some Random Whips!

That whip came out absolutely amazing, Sparky (speaking about the 32 plait handle). I really like the patterns you came up with.

Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.

Re: Some Random Whips!

Here's a new 5.5ft set of 16 plait bullwhips for a performing friend of mine! ^_^ Has a triple tapered lead core, which is great fun to make!

The falls are super waxy haha but they wanted it pretty rushed, so I had to take the picture right after waxing.
