What a sweetie! This little dragon is so cute; I just wanna take him home!

The sculpture seems to be standing on its own quite nicely, so that tells me he's bearing his weight quite well; we wouldn't want our little friend to topple over at the slightest nudge. It looks like you use polymer clay with some kind of pearlescent look to it, and it really shimmers nicely; the little dots all over his body really unify the doll and make his design super solid. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> He looks like a little cloud racing dragon!
I also love the variation of textures; his body is smooth, but the feathers and fur are very-fluffy looking.

I haven't done a full sculpture in a long time myself, so I'm not really sure that I should berate anything here too much.

The only thing I can really think to critique is presentation, and it's really not a big thing, but some advice for the future.
Photography is an entirely separate media, and I don't wanna be too harsh on that either since this is about sculpture; not photography. However, I do wanna suggest that you make sure the camera is white-balanced and that the contrast looks good when you go to take the picture. The absolute brightest thing in this picture should be his fur, and nothing should overpower that, not even the light source. You wanna make sure that the camera captures all of the beautiful details you sculpted in. The photography is not bad at all, and I can see the sculpting really well on most of the piece, but it took me a moment to realize that he had two different colored eyes because the light source hitting his face made me think that his left eye was just washed out.
You can check the contrast by opening the picture in almost any editing program and playing with brightness and contrast.

Excellent work; I really like this little guy, and I hope he has a good home!
