    Start with Dragons

    Starting with older work, (6 or 7 years ago). The large dragon is about 20" long and is a resin cast. The head was just for fun.

    Feedback is motivation. I look forward to it.

    Awesome work. How did you go about making a resin cast on the first model?

    I really like the placement of the eyes on these. Really makes them dragons and not dinosaurs. Though, the second one does remind me of a Harryhausen style dinosaur.

    The original sculpture was made with SuperSculpy. I designed the armature so that I could remove the head, arms, legs, and tail so that I could bake them in my home oven, (otherwise it would never fit). The next step was creating RTV silicon molds from which I cast urethane resin parts that I was able to assemble and paint. I had a lot of trouble with the wings. I discarded my first attempts and built up the version in the picture with Magi Sculpt, foil, paper towels and acrylic medium. I modified the face too, so I don't have a mold for this head. Thanks for your interest.

    Thanks Larriva, You're very perceptive. Harryhausen has been one of my biggest influences and I find difficult sometimes to break away from that.

    Fantastic stuff yancy! I didn't pick up on the Harryhausen influence
    when I first looked, but after Larriva mentioned it, I went back and
    thought, "Oh Yeah! How could I have missed that?" My only complaint
    is that you haven't posted more. Looking forward to seeing more of
    your pieces!

    The bust is excellent. The scales, wrinkles, skull structure etc. etc. all look very natural and plausible. I have no complaints about it.

    The older dragon... Good, but I'm not fond of the way the shoulders are very far up on the back. But as an older sculpt I feel I can't complain too much about it, either.

    ...which is only my opinion.

    There is nothing wrong with Harryhausen...sometimes old school can be really cool. I can't wait to see rest of it...the head looks very detailed and realistic.
