This was my final project for 3D Design in College....I'm always looking for a challenge, and this sure was one! It took about three weeks and a hundred smaller pipe cleaner models, but finally a relatively good result came out!
 


it is made out of old nasty greasy wire, and nice new shinny very thin copper wire. The copper wire is mainly used to join together the different parts of the dragon itself, and because its so thin it wraps and binds perfectly!



the castle top base is made out of styrofoam blocks dipped into plaster that is dyed with cement dye!  




hope you enjoy it as much as my boyfriend does, we are still trying to figure out a name for it!



comments and criticism greatly appreciated!

wow that's actually really cool. I love the stand it's on, much better then just putting it out there on a regular piece of plastic.

No criticism here. I love wire sculptures. I sure hope you got an A. This is something I would just look at all day, turn it around, examine all the angles and detail. I love it.

Wow, that is beautiful.  I especially love the wings, they look so delicate (and at the same time, so pointy. hehe)

Is it weird that I kind of really want to see the pipe cleaner mock-ups?

No, I was thinking the same thing.
