    Using the eBay test paint series “Twilight Gemstone” as an example, would you rather collect all sculpts of one color, or all colors of one sculpt?

    For myself, if I really loved a color, I would try to buy as many sculpts of it as I could.

    For Mystic Jade I loved the color and picked my fav sculpts to go after with the money I had. Of course it’d be nice to get all sculpts so you have the whole family.

    Now grab bags I have limited myself to color schemes, but multiple of the same sculpt. I like to have 2 or 4, it’s weird lol.

    I think we all know I’m a one-sculpt person. 😀

    Ironically, I’m too much of a completionist to try for color families; if there were only three pieces in a given color, I’d fret about the ones that were missing. I like my families big! 🙂 My White family includes almost every Western Dragon in production, but with test paints that would be impossible and I’d be bothered.

    Better to conga-line these things because then they always look like a complete grouping! 🙂 I do try to limit my congas (operative word here may be “try”…) to my absolute favorite species/sculpts, lest I basically end up with a bunch of small families by default. So I do fantasy Fennecs, natural SRFs, fantasy Cougars, eye-catching OWs, and all the Lap Dragons I like/can afford. 🙂 I’m trying not to end up with two congas of Pebble Dragons, but we’ll just have to see.

    I’ve been a color collector- it makes it feel like a bunch of individuals of a single (or a few related) species. Congas like Nightcrow’s lap one look cool to me, but I don’t think they’d work for me. They’d feel too much like Warhol prints of a single individual.
    I think your ‘Twilight Gemstone’ example would make the Warhol effect worse, since the patterns and values feel much the same in each, just different shades. If I wanted to complete a Twilight Gemstone series, it would have to be of color not sculpt. (the pattern sameness might make a mixed family cool, age related color changes and different color morphs within a species)

    I’m a rainbow colour collector type person meaning I either like rainbow sculpts or like a bunch of sculpts in a rainbow of colours. I do have some small families and pairs but the for the dragons I have now, I have a bunch of fledglings and baby dragons in a rainbow of 10 different production colours. I don’t care too much about getting different sculpts in the same colours. I am happy with getting the same sculpt in a bunch of different colours.

    Looking for rainbow or pink & teal grab bags!

    that’s me with fledglings, they’re a conga line of all the colors I like….

    I tend to like certain Sculpts, but I don’t like all the colors a sculpt may come in. And not all color/pattern schemes look good on my favorite Sculpts either, in my opinion. There are also some colors that really don’t appeal to me for any sculpt – such as Pastel colors.
    For those GBs I buy/trade on the 2nd hand market I look for what strikes me with that ‘WOW’ factor… A pleasing combination of color mix, details, and patterns on a sculpt I like, which will make me turn my head and pay attention – LOL! If I can’t stop thinking about the piece, than that’s a Grail! I’ve had a few that have done that to me, such as my favorite KS Special Adult Poad I claimed from the first Live Stream and ‘Bacon N’ Eggs’ Curlie I purchased from Etruscan (thx again!). 🙂

    It depends on the color. I only have one ruby, one emerald and one gold – I love these colors on specific sculpts only. Not all sculpts wear the colors the same way to me, so I just go with that!

    Read my books! Volume 1 and 2 of A Dragon Medley are available now.

    That’s very true! Some sculpts just look better in a certain color than others.

    I prefer mostly-solid colors on Laps, but have a couple of more wildly-colored OWs because the sculpt can carry them off so well. (Which reminds me, I need to get new pics of the OW Conga; I added one a while ago!) Part of it’s in the display, too, I think – the Laps I often display with each other, and a gaudy one would overpower the others. OWs I tend to display singly, so a crazy color on an OW doesn’t have competition. 🙂

    I do love the Browns and Greens for their history! That’s a good point. I have an Old Brown mother and male (one of them’s one of the Very First Windstones, without felt!) and an Old Green male whom I’d really like to find a mate for someday. If anyone spots an Old Green mother without felt on Ebay for a reasonable price, PM me! 😀 The historical meaning of them makes them special in my collection even though brown and green aren’t colors I would want more of.

    This is such a tough question! There are sculpts that I definitely prefer (hello, baby uni!), but there are also colors that I don’t like. So I get whatever I want, basically. If I like a sculpt and the color, then I want to add it to my collection.
    The only exception is my hatchers. I have every V1 hatcher in every color, including the two mistakes. The only one I’m missing is a Melody test paint. I’d still love to find one of those someday! There was a blue one that I tried so hard to win, but alas…it didn’t happen.

    I will keep an eye out! I have an old green male/mother pairing without the felt. They need some TLC though. Someday I’ll be able to ship them off for repairs.
