Dive into my newest blog about this sculpture, which features an in-depth walkthrough, video, & Q&A! -> bit.ly/1oIEt8W

Total size (including base): 7 x 7 x 12.5 inches. 
Sculpture size: 5 x 3 x 7 inches, made with wood, a steel and aluminum core, and sculpted in 1/2 Super Sculpey Firm, 1/4 Super Sculpey, and 1/4 Sculpey III Black with amazonite eyes. Sealed with a satin coating and hand-painted glossy highlights.

I was sad to pack this fella up and ship him off across country, but I was downright thrilled to surprise a dear friend of mine with this handsome gent, and even MORE thrilled he arrived intact!

This is a collage of some of my favorite photos of Steinir. He is a dragon of my own creation, and isn't intended to be fan art or based off of any existing dragons out there. As such, sculpting him was actually quite a freeing experience! I really had a blast trying to infuse some personality into him, and it makes me want to sculpt more scaled beasties. :)

Beautiful. Just beautiful. Man, I wish I had money to commission you. The level of details is stunning! I like the eyes the most, though. Amongst the greyness, they are there, pools of blue. :D

Thanks so much for the compliment!

I don't sculpt very often, usually a piece every few years, but my first serious sculpture was in 2009. :)

Thank you so deeply for the compliments! :)  From beginning to end, he was such a pleasure to sculpt, and I had a lot of fun trying to channel various real critters into his scale patterns. I'm so glad you like them!
