    Red face Personal Dragon Sculpt Project

    I've been working on this sculpt for many months in my spare time, so if you asked me how many hours I put into it I wouldn't be able to tell you! But, over the past ten years I've made only 3 other huge dragons all of which I've destroyed mainly due to sheer crapness. Or the simple fact that I am a typical perfectionist. The last sculpt I took apart after spending 3 weeks trying to make it look good. But, the armature was too weak and it just went floppy. But then I tried again using copper and brass tubes, stronger wire and milliput. I made a very strong armature and I then started adding the sculpey, then ever since I've been very careful in what I do so I won't have to mess it up again. As for the design I always wanted to make a distinctive looking dragon, something different.. something that would show my style. I'm an illustrator you see, but I've always done sculpture now and again since 1995. So I wanted to do a dragon that matched my vision as well as my style so I wanted it to look like a bird and dinosaur, built like a pit bull terrier dog, and prowls like a cat. Below you'll see where I loosely based my sculpture from a painting that I did last summer called, 'NekoRyu' (Cat Dragon). I have a billion sketches of dragons coz folks.. I'm the biggest dragon freak in the world. I've always been a dinosaur freak as well, and a big animal lover so it's inspired me into doing something like this. It's no where near finsihed yet, and there are plenty of things bI could do to fix it but I'm almost there I think.

    I've poured my heart and soul into this piece and really it's for me.

    Cheers guys!

    Many thanks mate, I truly appreciate your kind words! I've got a close up of the face but I don't think the flash on the camera gives it much justice. I'll keep updating when I can anyway, coz at the moment it's certainly looking a bit messy and patchy I think. Well, at least when the paint job's finished the textures will be a lot more visable. And the anatomy was very difficult! I took the anatomy of a dog and changed it, so it was no easy feat!

    Wink Woah man!

    Goog, idonotknow and messiah omega I just wanted to say a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge thank you for such warm words! I'm very grateful yer see because I haven't really showed anyone else apart from a few friends and family so I was a bit unsure about showing it on here.. I wasn't sure what kind of reaction I'd get. But a very positive one I've got so far and I don't know where to begin in showing my gratitude. I just hope i get the same reception when I complete the sculpt!

    Wah hey!

    Hey Dorian,

    Yeah you're right.. it's real hard work but satisfying thankfully! It wasn't much fun in my first attempt though, the armature wasn't strong enough and the body was way to long and it was generally badly done, so hopefully I'm doing it right this time. But I think I'll go bonkers if it falls apart! But it caaaaan't! It won't!!

    Many thanks for your kind words, each comment is really positive giving me more confidence to do more and better! In fact I think I'll start painting it properly on Monday!

    Lightbulb Dorian I forgot to mention..

    (About being attracted to Dragons) I've always loved Dragons. Ever since I can remember actually. When I was much younger I was always into dinosaurs watching movies like King Kong, A Million Years BC, A Land that Time Forgot etc, made me think, 'Wow.. big monsters.. woah man'.. Then my mom told me very briefly about St George and the Dragon and started to descibe them to me; 'Dragons are like dinosaurs, with horns, big bat wings and they even breathe fire!' I was like.. 'Woooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!' Since then I've been a dragon freak.

    Very cool man. It has a nice flow to it. It looks pretty big is the black stuff from using a torch to harden the sculpey? Can you post pictures from a couple of views? Very cool work.

    Peace, Dave

    Lightbulb Thanks Dave

    Actually, I accidently scorched one part of the dragon, which was the horn and at first I freaked out a little then I had another look at it when I thought.. hmm.. looks kinda cool! So I continued in certain places to scorch it with a heat gun. Normally I wouldn't do this but I gotta little carried away! Many thanks for your kind words and I'm glad you pointed out the scorching part. I did explain it originally but I thought it was to boring coz it went on and on in depth how I did it all so I deleted it all! Heh.

    I will upload some more piccies actually good idea.
