Sky Dragon is a step into the whimsical and surreal with it's pastel and luminous atmosphere. The artist shows an eye for dynamic and interest as this piece evokes the eye to stare. A great use of pastel and lighting.

The piece excels in color use and the visuals are nothing short of superb. An excellent selection of mutually homogenous hues and soft tones make this piece a stand out.

In reference to the dragon the front is the stronger in technique: lots of detail and well defined lighting. The backend is interesting but the color choices and line work lead to an unbalanced and heavy look which detracts from the overall flow of the centerpiece. The clouds in the background are interesting but may be a tad too close to color in some parts of the dragon.

In short, Sky Dragon is a beautiful piece of work that excels in stunning colors and interest but with added definition and some contrast the piece would be greatly elevated.

Excellent work overall.
Titan Dragon WIP 11
Started the bulking out process on the body. Liking where things are going thus far. Head and neck are 80% detailed in and then they go into the oven for final curing.

Made from; epoxy, wire and super Sculpey.

Titan Dragon WIP 10
So I haven't completely fallen off the face of the earth, guys!  I've been slowly making edits in-between work and life in general on this guy. I'm 90% done with all the hard details and 45ish% done with the secondary details. I added larger horns and removed all the small ones that lined his head. I also made slight changes to the jaw line and and restructured the teeth..Much happier!  The neck, which I really love and didn't picture is coming along nicely. Planning to have the head and neck done before the start of fall...and then we start on the upper torso and appendages. 

Again, I really appreciate all of the support and goodwill you guys offer on my work. You guys are always on my mind in reference to moving along with my projects...But considering past projects I'm moving along rather swiftly on this guy..experience and patience, I must be improving! Huzzah!

So its been a few weeks and then some since my last update. Between work and work there wasn't any time to do anything on this guy up until this weekend. Finalized all the rough details and made the change from wrinkled skin to large keloid and scaled skin. Now I just need to clean the sculpt and start the small details. 

Made from super sculpey, epoxy, aluminum and wire.

A simple and sublime capture of a most wondrous piece of instrument. The Photographer captures all the essentials: Size, presence and the dynamic structure of the pipe work.
Good use of technique as this type of object with the pipes and curves can make for a disjointed capture but the Photographer manages against these odds. The only suggestion I would have to offer would be to take the photo at a lower vantage point and with a greater upward facing angle to give the organ more gravitas and presence.
Overall a very lovely photo with a lot of draw and awe. Bravo.
So here I am again trying to get myself motivated to be back here on DA. So much has gone on since my last upload and its just been a crazy set of months, but heres hoping for some normal posting. I guess to come clean the end of January and the whole month of Feburary I barely touched the Titan Dragon: between work and stuff going on with my family it's been a bit problematic to take some time and work on my sculpture. In the next couple of months we're going to start a remodel on our home so the need to wrap up what I've started on the Titan Dragon is first priority as everything in the house will have to go into storage..something  I am oddly excited about. So, it will be my goal in the next two to three months to have the Titan Dragon's head and neck done so that they can go into storage. I'm going to go back to posting on a weekly basis and will try to make Thursdays my normal posting day.

In other personal news I've once again ordered chicks for this year's growing season and am very excited about the breeds as they're all new to me; Wyandottes, Dr. Whiting's True blue and Green, and a few bantam varieties. Hopefully this summer will be as beautiful as the last was for the weather allowed for much to be done garden and livestock-wise. Do any of you guys garden of raise livestock? I'd love to hear all about it!

So in summary things are seemingly cooling down again and I'm very excited to get things up and gear again in the Art Room.

You are always more than welcome to leave comments, ask questions, and to just stop on by and say hello. My knowledge is yours just as long as you ask.
