Steinir Dragon Sculpture (with Base) by Dreamspirit Steinir Dragon Sculpture (with Base) by Dreamspirit
Completed on January 26th, 2014

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 the first of a few photos I intend to upload of Steinir, but 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. :)

I took a series of photographs for the entire process creating him, which I intend to share at some point as well.

Good god, GOOD GOD GIRL! This is STUNNING. This is RIGHT out of a VFX house for monsters... the attention to detail, the shoulder spike- WOWZA. The eye is also very eerie. This is a grad A piece, with so much professional essence!!!

He turned out great!  Wish we could have been there to watch the unpackaging, though the sudden barrage of pictures and all caps text was also quite amusing. ;)
