    Well, I finished my third little dragon. I’ve decided to name him “Red Velvet Latte.”

    I was hoping the different reds would come through better in the photos, but this seems to be the best I can do for the time being.

    Also, I took a few pics of Mr. Latte here with his friends.

    There are a few more pictures in the gallery, but these will do for here.

    I will be adding a fourth member to this little group soon, just have some final decisions to make about her design.

    And… the fourth dragon is complete. Thankfully the colors on this one are bit more easily distinguished, so camera quality hasn’t muddled too much this time.

    Her name is “Shattered Flame.”

    In this case, I based her design from a sketch idea of mine, rather than a particular object.

    I ended up swapping around some of the colors, and adding a few extra details, but the base concept is still the same. I was going to use the picture of the whole group, but this one looks particular cute next to Caustic, I think.

    I especially had a lot of fun with these two, so I guess it makes sense that I’d like them the most. Perhaps it’s also because they’re the two with the most gradients in their color schemes… I love doing color transitions 🙂

    Glad you think so, thanks! 🙂  That one took a bit more time than the others, but was definitely a lot of fun. I’m hoping to do some more detailed pieces in the future, perhaps a few with similarly “shattered” themes. For the next one, though, I already have a design in mind.

    I think it’s such a great idea to plan out/sketch your paint scheme ideas on paper first, I need to do that more rather than flying by the seat of my pants haha.

    Time for the next one! I did sketch out a concept for this guy, but figuring out how to go about it in paint was… problematic, at least for a while. After a lot of hours trying different methods, and sometimes just staring at the sculpture in stagnation, I think this is what I meant for it to be.
    I call this dragon “Lucid Dreamer.”



    And one of the whole dragon-family together:

    Aw, thank you so much, guys! 🙂
    I was worried all the eyes and stuff would be a bit much, so I’m glad y’all like it.

    I was sorting my paints and putting them away again, when I noticed something I’d missed.
    There were some tiny bow ties lying in the bottom of the box I’d been using… I’d forgotten to glue his on!

    Problem solved! Now the big fella can be dapper as he dreams.
    I still have to make his trinket from sculpy, but I’ll post a pic of that when it’s done too.
    Also.. here’s a better angle of his left side, since the last one kind of had a shadow hiding most of the wing.

    He doesn’t technically match with my collection, but I’m still so happy with how this one turned out.
    When designing him, I wanted his look to scream “whimsy,” with just a dash of creepy. I plan to do similarly odd designs in the future.
