Green Dragon Scupture for Challenge

Green Dragon by FantasyClay
Each month the Artfire Polymer Clay Guild has a challenge; this month the theme is medieval. What could be a better theme. It does have to be a new item in the store, made just for the challenge. Sometimes I cheat and use an item I had never bothered to list before, but shhhh, that's my secret. This month however, I was inspired to try something push myself and try something more.

Ok so dragons aren't actually new for me but this one is quite a bit larger than usually and isn't just laying on the ground. He's up off the ground- yes I'm pushing myself using armature more and each scale was applied separately. Took a long time but relaxing in a way. 

I had fun making him, I admit to having some inspiration from Dinko Tilov's books but I think I added a enough of myself to make him special.

Don't worried, he doesn't bite, I've noticed the green dragons tend to be pretty easy going, unlike their very fierce red brethren.
