It's been a while since I just took the time to sculpt a dragon without worrying about making it for anyone else to like and just enjoy what I make. He's not cute or nice, in fact he is kind of dark and creepy as he glowers as he lays in wait.

I make the skin textured and the wings wrinkled. It is make of gray clay with mica powers for color and shimmer. His body is a shimmery purple while he wings and spikes on his back are deep green. He is different from most things I do. Even when I play around, I still tend to think of what is going to sell. I need to take more time to do dragons like this. It is so satisfying to just build the parts and solve the problems of how to do each part without having to worry if someone else will like it.

He is guarding my living room now, even though he is only 6 inches long. He looks like he might attack at any minute. At least until someone else decides they need to have him guarding their house. I decided to list him in my Artfire store. Check out this dragon here.
