    Dragon

    Hello all. This is a dragon sculpted out of polly. took a couple of weeks around working on other projects. could have had more detail on the scales etc but time unfortunately caught up with me.

    Feedback welcome

    And if anyone could tell me how to resise the pictures that would be great. They're all too big

    you've certainley been busy! with 4 threads up! i think this is my favourite one so far. what did you use to cover the polysterene? Bit hard to see in the pic.
    I love the texture and the paint job is amazing!

    Big head

    Awesome work, i kilke the texture and painting of horns and eyes, i don't really like the position of the tongue but that's personal, maybe with more texture on it

    Thanks again for your opinions. I used a material called styrocoat which is sprayed from a gun and sets almost imediately like plastic. one drawback is its really expensive. The gun is 500 pounds and the cartridges are 25 pounds each and this baby took about 5 or 6 of them. As for the tongue I admit the photographs look a bit funny the way its hanging out the side of the mouth but I used a number of different positions before finalising. Because the head is sweeping to the left I thought the tongue could kind of follow the momentum of the head like it was in motion. Something my photos don't suggest I'm afraid.

    Thank you all and keep em comin

    wow, that's huuge! I think he looks great and the toungue certainly ads a bit of character! great work!
    question: that styrocoat-gun - is it a special one, or could i just use a huge spray gun, with , like, a 1,5 or a 2,0mm nozzle?

    about resizing the pictures: ImageShack (for one) has this button that says 'resize pictures' and if you choose 'for message boards' they all come out fine...
    come to think of it, i don't even know if I.S. or such is required for posting pics in this forum...so far i've never posted any.

    on the other hand, i don't think your pics came out too big...

    cheers

    Thanks

    Thanks for your comments I enjoyed reading them all. The gun is a special gun with two rams on it which pushes components A and B through a small nozzel. Although its good I wouldn't buy one personally. I'd rather use something else. If you contact the suppliers of such materials and ask if they have any new products which are cheap and cheerful they could probably tell you. New products come out every day and u gotta keep up wit them.

    Thanks again and speak later
