Hey guys, been a while since I posted anything here... I've really fallen away from DA. It's not really mobile friendly so it's a bit of a hassle to use very often I'm afraid... I'm mainly on Facebook and Instagram these days. 

BUT since this is where I first debuted my original Gem Dragons, (discontinued in 2013) and got so many loyal  fans from them being a customizable made to order item in my shop when I first started, I wanted to show this. I went and remade all the originals 2010 Gem Dragons with my current style and skillset, and absolutely love seeing all the differences and improvements. Just goes to show what you can accomplish over 7+ years of study and practice. So to anyone out there doubting their current abilities, just know that everyone started somewhere, and nothing great is gained without hard work. You put in the time and it pays off, so don't give up! :D (Big Grin) 

It's been an amazing journey getting to this point, and without all of you guys supporting my efforts, I would be nothing. Thank you for all the kind words over the years, the encouragement, and the inspiration. I really am sorry to have fallen away from this place, but I know a ton of you follow along on my other sites now at least. I'll try to pop by here from time to time though. 

ALSO these guys are all going up for sale tomorrow! Sunday July 2nd @ 3pm MST. So if you missed out on a Gem Dragon back in the day, you have another shot! Details will be posted on my Facebook page, which is where I am most active now: www.facebook.com/dragonsandbea…
also Instagram: www.instagram.com/dragonsandbe…

Which one is your favorite? I am in love with the pink one. She is so happy! Love

I think I noticed before You used to say that non-glazed pieces are a super rare for You - now they are like very common - did that lovely solf, matte surface love at last came? :D I'm always unsure about glazing - I love how matte clay looks like, but the curiosity how the finished piece would look like all glossy and juicy colored is also tempting :squee:

I actually had to stop glazing out of necessity. It was absolute murder on my tendonitis to the point that I could barely sculpt from the pain. Took a while to figure out that was what was causing me trouble. So no more glazing for me, except for some accents. I actually really love the natural look though, so it worked out!

Ouch! Then I hope it's better now! And true - natural look of clay is amazing too! But well... everything is amazing if it comes from You!

Cool too see how they've gotten better in quality and skills. I would like to se a more slender dragon such as the 2010 dragons with your new skills though.

These are all really amazing! I absolutely love the light green one. How did you get that shade of green if you don't mind my asking?
