Dojo by Vertaki Dojo by Vertaki
Shipwreck in a sea of faces
There's a dreamy world up there
Dear friends in higher places
Carry me away from here

Travel light, let the sun eclipse you
'Cause your flight is about to leave
And there's more to this brave adventure
Than you'd ever believe

Birdseye view, awake the stars 'cause they're all around you
Wide eyes will always brighten the blue
Chase your dreams, and remember me, sweet bravery
'Cause after all those wings will take you up so high

So bid the forest floor goodbye
As you race the wind and take to the sky
You take to the sky

On the heels of war and wonder
There's a stormy world up there
You can't whisper above the thunder
But you can fly anywhere

Purple burst of paper birds this
Picture paints a thousand words
So take a breath of myth and mystery
And don't look back

Birdseye view, awake the stars 'cause they're all around you
Wide eyes will always brighten the blue
Chase your dreams, and remember me, sweet bravery
'Cause after all those wings will take you up so high

So bid the forest floor goodbye
As you race the wind and take to the sky
(Take to the sky)

There's a realm above the trees
Where the lost are finally found
Touch your feathers to the breeze
And leave the ground

Birdseye view, awake the stars 'cause they're all around you
Wide eyes will always brighten the blue
Chase your dreams, and remember me, sweet bravery
'Cause after all those wings will take you up so high

So bid the forest floor goodbye
As you race the wind and take to the sky
You take to the sky
(You take to the sky)

You take to the sky
~Owl City


Dojo was never spectacular... in fact... he was quite the opposite, a failure to thrive and a disgrace to his family.
Couldn't fly, couldn't fight... he fell behind...
So on a cold night, he was abandoned.. for only the strong should prosper.. that was the law, and as such, was beyond contestation.
Dojo found himself all alone.. cold, wet, hungry.... and miserable... but some how.. by fate or luck, he found his way. seems all he needed was time. time they would not give him.

this is my first attempt at a pose able doll! I had alot of fun with him!!! AND HES SOFLUFFFFEH

I owe it all to :iconcarn-dearg: :heart: her dolls inspired me to break free from the confines of simple clay.. to soar to new possibilities on black feathers from Ebay :wink: If you don't already know her, Please go check her out! she is phenomenal

Oh man, this baby is so incredibly cute! I don't suppose you'd be doing commissions for something like this at a later date, would you? I'd love to try for him, but even the opening bid is out of my price-range at the moment. If you'd be willing though, I might end up comissioning you later when I have the money.
