Copper Mech Dragon by *NycterisA. A polymer clay sculpture and according to the suggester, the artist "really got the proper patina on the metallics down; with that aged look, he appears to belong in the 'steampunk' style. He manages to have a shy demeanor even though he's 'made of metal.'"

Copper Mech Dragon

The Magineer nodded at his work. It would do. He inserted the locus crystal and watched as the immense construct shuddered into life...

Composed of: Polymer clay, paint, armature, stuff like that.
( And now owned by :iconjahnoth: )

Interested in something like this? Note me! Prices start at a mere $175 and include shipping (but I can't guarantee how fast I'll get one done for you).

Brilliant :D

A while back I did a painting of a metal bird, and i've been toying with the idea of making a 3D version of it. This has really inspired me to do it.

So thanks on several levels :hug:

So do I ;) I've bought some magic sculp (is that what it's called? Two part epoxy stuff that comes in tubs) and I've got some wire to make an armature. I'm going to buy some DAS clay as well, I think, to build form...

But, currently, I'm working on two paintings to enter into an art competition. So they have my full attention right now.

Although, you may notice, I'm on the internet and clearly not painting... So maybe not quite my full attention ;)

Firstly, CONGRATS on the DD!! ^.=.^

Secondly, this is dangerously cute! He needs a warning label somewhere visible, of the potential hazardous cute levels certain operators may experience around such a sweet looking metaloid behemoth =P

So, I guess it wouldn't be too much of a bad pun to say you were going for the "steampunk" genre in this one?
