Smaug the Dragon Custom Vinyl Toy

By Barnlord
Smaug the Dragon! Only seeing his eye in the last Hobbit film has put me on the war-path for anything dragon. So, when I had the opportunity to make a dragon custom toy, I decided that I should do my take on Tolkien's iconic monster. For this custom, I used a Creatology dino vinyl body. I turned the head around and used the fat snout as the back of the head. I then built the wings and rocky terrain out of wire, aluminum foil and original scultpty. I used a combination of fine gold glitter and coarse gold glitter to make the flow of treasure at his feet. I did add some glow effects to the rock and his eyes. There is really no reason for it, except that it looks rather cool in the dark.

I couldn’t figure out what vinyl you used as the base til I read the description. And it still took a minute to see it. This is an amazing custom. Do you bake everything in once piece?

Thank you very much! I usually bake the pieces as a whole. There are a few toys that I will have to separate the head from the body. I guess it depends on the toy. :D

Thank you, good sir! I wasn't sure if this custom would work out at first. I was quite surprised.
