Dragon Book

As promised, here is my first dragon book. It was quite a difficult approach since I had to figure out myself how to paint a glass blank. After many failures I found my personal technique, which has yet to be refined. ;D The surrounding of the eye is sculpted and the cover of the book is made of leather. The sheets are made of lovely watercolour and acrylic painting paper. It's one of my favourites, hence I chose it for this book. It took me a while to figure out how to fix the eye underneath and around the the leather. It's sealed like a bombshell and would never come off.

This one will be for display and auction at the Eurofurence artshow. Thank you so much for looking <3

Love the colors used and the design in both Fox and Dragon books. Leather looks like the best medium to use for bookcovers

what did you use to sculpt it on? I'm interested in trying a similar thing to create gash marks in a book cover of mine.
