Prince of Fire

This was actually the first over-sized dragon that I made in preparation for the wedding cake toppers that I showed last week. He's about 2.5 inches tall, including the horns, so a good deal bigger than my usual 2-inch dragons. I tried to give him some extra detailing, especially on the ears, horns, and legs - the dragons are, after all, usually sitting on their haunches, they're just to small to really make it worth showing. Technically, they're supposed to have hooks on the backs of their feet, that kind of match up with the hooks on their wings, but I usually drop both due to their small size. Not terribly happy with how the ears turned out, but I do like the large, twisted horns. And I really like how well the die matches up with this guy! A worthy treasure for such a princely fellow. :heart:

This dragon was sold at Fanime 2014.

Oooh, I love fiery color schemes, and this guy is totally rocking it. The horns are especially awesome. And that fiery die he's got suits him perfectly. :D

Thanks! I don't usually go for really big horns on my dragons, but this guy demanded it. :)

This is amazing! I love the colors on him. The horns are amazing - I love the spiraling of colors. :D

Thanks! I should do dual-colored horns more often. I like how these turned out. :]

I sculpt clay dragons, too! It's super addicting. =D

By the way, where do you find the D20s used in your sculptures? The only place I've seen them is in bulk online but I've been looking for stores that carry them.

Oh, that's cool! I don't see any in your gallery though?

I buy my dice online because I don't have a decent game store anywhere near me. Most sites sell them in sets, but I've found several that sell individual dice. You just have to look harder. :)
