If you haven't seen these dragons yet, yes they are inspired by "the dress". After a long and pointless debate over that stupid thing with my husband (we each saw the opposite colors), we decided it didn't really matter and was in fact both colors. It really just depended on perception. And so he jokingly suggested I make a dragon couple in those colors. The colors actually go really nicely, and I ended up putting way more time into these than I ever really planned to. At least SOMEthing good came out of all that dress nonsense, right?

Anyway, the set is now up on ebay for anyone interested. They would make a fantastic cake topper, for all of you out there STILL trying to request one from me. Commissions are closed indefinitely guys, sorry ^^;

So if you have been dying for a dragon couple from me, now is your chance: www.ebay.com/itm/Opposites-Att…
Opposites Attract by DragonsAndBeasties

Man...I feel like I post so little anymore. Takes me forever to finish things... I've been trying to relax more and not push myself to work so much. I got reeeally burnt out during the holidays, and in general tend to be a bit of a workaholic. But I realized I was watching Ember all day, keeping house and running errands, and then jumping right into sculpting once she'd go to bed and stay up waaay too late on projects. I was basically working solid everyday, with pretty much no down time. So I've gotten back into gaming, and even reading. I've been playing Majora's Mask recently, never actually beat it way back when on the 64. I've enjoyed spending more time NOT worrying so much about being crazy productive, and I've been happier for it. It's just made me realize everyone needs some downtime in their day, or they just become a machine. I of course still sculpt when I can, but I don't try to do so every little chance I get. It's just not worth the stress and potential burnout. If I feel inspired to work, I work. If not, I don't push it.

It is funny though, sometimes I think back on those days before I had Ember and wonder what on earth did I do with all that free time?! Definitely took it for granted :XD:

I LOVE Zelda : Majora's Mask, the new 3ds version is so epic :3 I totally agree with you, before I had our little Kairen I used to game with my husband all the time, sew pokemon hats, cosplay, random things here and there, and even watch an ENTIRE (gasp) anime series. Now that we have her, it seems our Monster Hunter battles are spent with her on our lap or not all (lol) and my gameboy/drawing/anime watching time is when she's all worn out from rough housing and she's sleeping soundly on my side while I sneak in a video game. ^^;; I definitely took all that time for granted, but hey when they get older you can let them in on your game time! Then I bet it would be twice as fun :3

I love them, but they sure do cost a lot.

Amazing! Love this concept! You're right, the colours really do work well together.

I'm soooo pleased to hear you're not pushing yourself so hard anymore. It's incredibly easy to do when you enjoy your work, but I think we all need a little R & R to stay energised and inspired. It's not just physical burnout you're risking otherwise, but creative burnout as well!

I think, as artists, we spend a lot of time exchanging our time for money (working on commissions or slaving over a piece we later put up for sale). It's great that you've got your Zazzle shop to help!

Take it easy, and keep up the amazing work! :)

I originally saw the dress as white and gold, read an article dissecting the whole thing, and then scrolled back up, and the dress had changed to blue and black.  It's an optical illusion just like this:

I can now see the dress as both colors.  And the most important thing is this:

And I love these dragons.  The colors really do compliment each other!
