The Glass Sculptor by sandara The Glass Sculptor by sandara
Inspired by my friend Kristina!
I wanted to draw an artisan of some sort with a fantasy twist, and thought of her. :)

She's a glass sculptor and you can see her pretty works here :  www.facebook.com/RubiusGlass/

SlingBlade87 wrote a lovely short story based on this! Read it here : Dragon Glasswork

This is really cool. Glass blowing and sculpting is a very interesting topic... it is a beautiful art form. Being able to see where exactly Elrond got his fancy goblets it nice!

A nice piece, but considering that the dragon is in a working environment, I think it might have been better to have it remain stationary, such on as a perch or somesuch, so that it could provide a more steady flame. Bobbing about as it is, certain... accidents... could occur (Swerve the maw too much, and fwoosh!) I'm on fire! 


...also, where are the snacks? I've worked at a few work benches, and unless you're in a laboratory, there are always snacks (Chewing helps the concentration!). :popcorn:

Thanks! Yeah, someone else mentioned the unsteadiness when flying too. I had the dragon on the table initially,but it made a rather boring composition, so I changed it. I forgot that the flame had to be steady for a certain amount of time!

well, there is a small plate of charcoal for the dragon to snack on. :)

I see your point, flight and motion are usually a more dynamic pose for dragons. To make them more animalistic, more lifelike, I've heard a few artists say that they usually base their more "grounded" poses a little on cats, dogs, or horses. Imagine a dragon in mid-"meow" while flexing a claw, or forelegs splayed and back arched in play; imagine how the muscles, tail, and wings might play into that.

Crap, a mewling dragon, that's now going to be a thing, if it isn't already. :meow:

No jerky? Humans gotta eat too y'know? Plus, most dragons are carnivorous. What better way for a dragon and its human to train and bond than over shared snacks and meals.

Mmmm... Jerky. :drool:

This is awesome! I have some experience making glass beads in a very similar manner to what she is doing. I really appreciate that you included the glass rods you would use to create something like this. Great job!

Hmmm...does glass actually sweat when you work on it? Or is it condensation?
