Myn the Dragon Sculpture

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] )!

Alternate views can be seen here:

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.
