Update -- Made his body, got that stuff made and fired.  I gave him spines running along his lower back to upper tail, which I will fill in like his ears.  I haven't yet decided what to do for his skin.  I was planning on making him have sculpted feathers, however I think that would contrast too much with his ear and spine webbing.  Maybe I should do scales?  Or...I don't know.  But whatever I do, I still have to add another layer of clay for his skin.

*note* I think the oven was set too high or something, look at how burnt he is!  Ahh, that will make him a little weaker structurally, but since he is mostly wire and foil underneath, it shouldn't be too big of a deal.  And of course, unnoticeable once I paint him.




Sorry about the low quality of the pictures.  I didn't figure I needed to waste time taking better pictures, if he wasn't done anyway...

Well, I haven't quite decided what to do for his body, as I'm out of foil to make an armature, but I figured I'd fire his head anyway.  It's not quite done, as I still have to fix up the ears and add scales/fur/feathers/i'mnotsureyet, as well as make a body and add a coat of paint.  But I figured I'd show off his head as of the moment. 



Or if that doesn't show up, here's the link: http://ic3.deviantart.com/fs11/i/2006/213/1/8/Dragon_head___not_painted_by_ArtisticFox.jpg

I'm up for personal swaps, as well as commissions, and everything I make is for sale.  Ask me about stuff: maincoon@comcast.net

I need BONES.  I will pay $$ for defleshed bones, skulls.  I will pay for shipping of other things (such as roadkill).  I will pay big bucks for cool dead stuff.  Smiley

Does this work better?

I don't know why they don't show up for some people.  They work fine on my computer.  :\
