Myn Sculpture-Alternate Views

Alternate views of my Myn sculpture. See the original piece here:

A commission for :iconjrlallo: of Myn the dragon from his book series The Book of Deacon([link] ).

This was a very cool piece to work on! I don't sculpt dragons very often, and this is the first time I've sculpted one of this size before. I was really excited to try out some new techniques and get practice sculpting things like wings, horns and scales. This commission was well timed also, as I recently received :iconemilysculpts:'s amazing new sculpting book Creature Sculpt, which has plenty of great tips for sculpting dragons. :D Seriously, if you don't have her book, go order it right now([link] )!

Myn measures about 4.5" tall and 6" from wing to wing. She is sculpted from Super Sculpey Firm and Apoxie over a wire and foil armature, painted with acrylic paint and sealed with a satin finish. She is mounted on a wooden base that has been sanded, stained and glazed.

Aw, gosh, thank you!  I think I still have a lot to learn about sculpting dragons, but I'm really flattered you like it! :D

I love it! So much detail for a figure that size! I have the little cat figure you made me a few years ago for christmas hanging next to my comp. Every time I see it I still can't believe how much talent you've honed just over the last few years, it's amazing!

Aww, gosh, Thank you! :hug:

Oh man, you mean those terrifying flat sculptures I made forever ago? Augh, those were so awful! I'm glad you still like yours, though! XD I do enjoy going back and looking at those sometimes on days I feel like I'm not improving any. ;)

Love how the scales and everything turned out!
LeiliaClay's avatar
Thank you! I was really nervous the scales weren't going to turn out right, but I think they ended up working pretty well. :)
ChalkTwins's avatar
They did indeed! You should make more dragons. :D

This guy is amazing! Your details are incredible, those thin wings had to have been a challenge. Beautiful work!
LeiliaClay's avatar
Thanks so much! ^_^ I was really nervous about the wings, since I haven't done any this large before, but they actually weren't nearly as bad as I thought they would be! They were actually kind of fun. :)

So very good. A friend of mine was over the house recently and was very impressed with your work. He immediately started brainstorming what figurine he would want to commission.
