I meant to upload these last week, but due to multiple family events and activities I literally did not have a minute to set up a photo shoot. Fortunately today has been much more laid back and I was able to get out my camera again.
As promised, I bring you my second Breyer repaint for my daughter. I was going for a "Goth" sort of feel on this piece, and I am satisfied with the way it turned out. So is Lydia, LOL. Unfortunately, the subtlties of the colors in the finished piece don't show to advantage in this photo - I have no idea why the red around the eyes is so pronounced, and the shades of green that are dappled through the coat are all but invisible. I guess you're just going to have to trust me on this one - it turned out pretty cool.
I still need to embellish and insert the wings, but although I like this pair I'm not certain now that I want to use them. I think I want something a little more dragon-like.
And finally, here is my little baby dragon as is he so far. He's come a ways from that ball of tinfoil, hasn't he?
His little face turned out exactly the way I wanted it, so I went ahead and baked that part already. I have been doing some reading and experimenting with sculpting then baking in stages, and I think this might just be the technique I need to protect my works from inadvertant squishes and fingernail marks.
Next up will be to give him real hands and feet instead of the mittens that show here. I am really anxious to finish him, but one step at a time is better than never finishing him because I don't have time to settle down and concentrate on the whole thing in one sitting.
