I've been interested in miniature sculting for a while, it is always interesting to follow a sculpt from start to finish, especially when there is such a masterful sculptor.
Tsk tsk, those wing progress shots are just too awesome. Really solid methodology going on there. Thanks for posting those. It almost makes me want to put wings on my goblin just for the hell of it.
Artastic - the mesh can be found in varying levels of...flexibility? Over here in the US, we can find it online at blick.com, hobby lobby and similar craft stores, and it comes in aluminum and copper, and sometimes small sqaure sheets, sometimes rolls, usually rolls in art stores, small sheets in craft shops. I was seeing it anywhere from 5-12 bucks a roll, depending on size of the roll and size of the mesh. smaller holes, bigger price.
Twinky's, I used to love those things as a kid, I can't bring myself to eat one these days...although I did have a deep fried one at the state fair. Probably the only good thing at a state fair...it was so "rich" and sweet, I'll probably not eat one again.
Mad Cross, your workspace is near a cat's litter box too?! SOLIDARITY!
Our cat's crap shack is in the little closet in our 2nd bedroom in the townhouse. We've had our cat a few months, and I'm convinced that thing craps more like a dog than a cat. An animal after my own heart...
....anyways. Thanks for updating the thread Dream! Can't wait to see this sucker all done and ready for paints.
keep it up

wooo.. I love the wings!! I see you will soon end with this work. I look to see how the scales pints! I've been very busy with a job in these days but as soon as I got into the forum I have gone to see the progress of your work. Congratulations!! The dragon is fantastic!
Hey. I absolutely love your work. I'm currently trying to get into sculting and i figured your the guy to ask: What do i need to get started and can you suggest and good tutorials?
Awesome, love the detail. Very Inspiring! Great Tips/ideas too
Yeah you defineately helped!! Thanks alot hopefully i can get my hands on these items so i cen get started.
And thank you as always Mariah, for all your support and friendliness I too always check out how you're getting on with your masterpieces! I just hope mine turns out as I want it too.
Hello my friend,
A thousand apologies for not replying to your question earlier (but as I can see, our mutual friend Madmaestro has got there before me! ) I've been offline for a while because I've been moving house and finding the time to sculpt and go online is a bit little at the moment! What i can suggest to you though is to work small at first, and experiment with differnt types of clay. Don't go out spending a fortune on it yet though because you may not feel comfortable with it at all. You can buy rtial packs of Sculpey, and Oil based clay is cheaper to buy and lasts more or less forever. And may I also suggest you upload your work here so we can help you, or guide you in your process somehow. We're all learning in here!
Look forward to seeing your work!
Awesome works I love the detail you put into your work, and it all seems so neat you make it look very easy!
I saw another dragon you did, and it, like this is beautiful, I really love your style. You are the Dragon King
very inspiring stuff,Great Wip shots really useful to see whats involved
Man, you make me want to sculpt. Had a character in the back of my head for awhile and seeing this just brings that urge closer.

Aw thanks mate Me a dragon king eh? Now that would be cool lol dragons are definately my favourite subject. I'm gonna make em and draw em for the rest of my life! I love it that much. I'm really glad that you're enjoying the progress, I just hope that it's easy to follow. Thanks again! I really don't deserve such kind words!
And also I see that you're in Kent. Yeah there was an excellent 'Model Making' course there at the time although I dunno if it's still there or not now, I was actually thinking about studying there about 13-14 years ago but I went to Stockport College in the end to do illustration instead.
Thanks, its ok that you didn't reply(moving is not an easy thing!!), also it turns out that I already had a little bit of sculpey. Is it ok if I post pics in this thread?
Thanks for the comments dude!
Although, if you elect for darker values, a brilliant gloss finish would grab the light quite deliciously.
Choices, choices - and all of them exciting at this point. Glad you're back and ready to work.
... a cry went up into the shuddering air, and faded to a shrill wailing, passing with the wind, a voice bodiless and thin that died, and was swallowed up, and was never heard again in that age of this world.
Thanks again Buddy, I'll keep your suggestions in mind!
sir, your work is absolutely breathtaking.
so much effort put into detail, the sculptors are almost life like.
awesome , i'm glad i stumble upon your link.
take care and have a good weekend : )
The only real failure is the failure to try
Thank you for putting your work out for us to see. I'm just getting into sculpting, so it is very helpful to see others work and to get tips on how you did things. Many thanks to you for sharing your work and technique...
