Copper Mech Dragon by NycterisA Copper Mech Dragon by NycterisA
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.

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-10-23
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.'" ( Suggested by CatharsisJB and Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

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!! ^.=.^
*tacklehugs*

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?

That's...just, wow. o.o I love, how you painted this. It looks like it really is metal, I'd've believed it without a doubt if someone had said it was. His demeanor's really cute, too. :)

Jeez, now I really really wish I could commission people. D:
