This piece took longer than I care to admit, each scale had to be added individually, shaded and textured - but i'm super chuffed with how it turned out!
With real lava bead and red howlite stone

I love how it looks like black soot crust over molten lava, well done! Gorgeous, expressive face too.

Very realistic looking sculpt and paint job, especially the head!  You did a wonderful job on this Draco Draconum!

Oh my gosh that is absolutely stunning!  Fantastic work!  I love how the skin under the scales fades between colors, like the lava is cooling.

How did you get the colors to glow out like that? Is he painted or entirely clay?
