I'm fairly happy with this necklace. I was very careful when sketching the rough, since I have seen many many clay renditions of toothless, and I don't see many that really capture his wild Night Fury nature - this was my goal.

Another challenge with this one was structural integrity. I've had a lot of crazy commissions lately that would be weak and brittle with no extra help. I've been using a lot of wire late- this guy is full of it! The downside is that this necklace ended up being fairly heavy for a clay sculpture. It's still not as heavy as a stone druzy necklace or something but it's got a real presence to it lol.

[ sculpted from super sculpy, painted with acrylic paint ]

Sorry, commissions are CLOSED for the time being to give me time to make Halloween themed jewellery for my store :D

Er…did you know that some guys from Hong Kong have copied your necklace, mass produced it and sell it on ebay now? :worry: This is really awful! I hope so much you’ll find a way to stop them!

I sure will! I just got back from vacation and have all my parts that I need ordered in ^_^ They'll be appearing in my shop most likely in less than two weeks! 

I try to keep a steady amount of them in my shop, but they get bought so quickly I've never kept any in there more than two days >_<

Ahh this is wonderful! The style is very true to the movie and you captured its personality pretty well :) I really like the way you painted your sculpture's eyes, they always look kind of glowy lol. Also presence to a necklace is sometimes a good thing cos if anything they can give this feeling of the item being more sturdier :nod:

This is by far the best movies/games related piece of jewelry you've made yet in my opinion. The pose and shape is just perfect, and you definitely managed to capture Toothless' wild side well.
Damn I love this movie too. I had no expectations to a movie with such a strange title, not to mention the fact that I already felt that dragons were a bit cliche to begin with.
I think my jaw was kind of hanging open at the end of it. It's now on my top 10 list of best movies I've seen.

Geez, thanks man ^_^ I'm really glad to hear about the movie accurateness. I'm a big fan of the film too so I wanted to do it justice.
