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!!!
