This is my entry in the Fancraftic 2 Contest. - [link]
This is Buckbeak the Hippogriff from Harry Potter and the Prison of Azkaban (movie and book).
He would probably go in the Artisan Crafts > Custom Dolls Category.
He started life as a Breyer G2 galloping TB ([link]
) I cut off his head and legs, added an eagle head, claws and wings and painted him in pastel chalks with minimal acrylics on his legs and face.
He took about 9 hours total to complete.
And Buckbeack wins MOST CREATIVE! See FanCraftic 2 results here! [link]
