Starting new Big Dragon Project
This time, a Red and Black asian-inspired dragon. Similar size to the Ginormous Bronze, but no wings. Trying to determine whether or not to make a movable jaw on this one. This will be the Display dragon for art shows. Also working on Smaller creatures for an art show in January" Unicorns, smaller dragons of various sized. I'll post pictures of progress on the big one, and the little ones when they are finished.
After a long dry spell, I'm finally back to making dragons! And other things! Yay! I'm feeling the urge to challenge myself - time to make that winged beardie I've been imagining, or another faerie after 20 years, or perhaps more unicorns!
And, I think, a big, black dragon, with a working jaw, for display at art shows (no, not as large as the bronze one - I'm not that crazy). I have this luscious black-on-black scale fabric.....
No, it will not be Toothless.
OK! So it's mostly done! Done enough for the client to display for a while, ad you can see from the photos), and I will take some time to create a crest of some type (the head looks a bit bare). That, and a few odds and ends to literally tie up. I love upholstering needles, BTW. The curve is perfect for working on hard-to-reach corners.
Then, some downtime to regroup, deal with the things I've been neglecting, and onward to a couple more commissions (little ones this time, thank goodness).
Head is almost finished. It's a little heavier than I'd like, but it will be fine. Still waiting on the eyes. Everything else is done. The eyes should arrive in 3 days, and then it will be completely done. It's hard to believe.
I'll be sure to take lots of pictures.
Really, REALLY tired today.
Teeth done. I really hate working with translucent sculpie. It is the most inflexible of all sculpie. Looks great when baked, though. Skull is undergoing a transformation, with a totally new lower jaw, and a cranium that is more like a real cranium. Looking at pictures of real skulls helps.
Figured out how I'm going to do the interior of mouth, just have not figured out how to do the external skin on a two-piece skull. All well, this too will come in time.
