Black Ice male dragon by Reptangle Black Ice male dragon by Reptangle
I test paint dragons often, to hunt around for any really good color combos that we might want to do as a production color.

I liked the sound of the name "black Ice" so I invented this dragon color to fit it. He was sold on ebay.

My lord. This has to be one of your best color schemes. (Maybe I'm just a sucker for those turquoise eyes). He looks so intense.

Do you mean special ones like this one, that we sell on ebay?
I don't remember what this particular dragon sold for, but we just auctioned a light blue male dragon [link]
This same dragon sculpture in a normal production color, "Peacock", was just sold ( by somebody else, not us) on ebay for $49.
So there is quite a range.

Wow! See, I'm a student, so I don't have that type of money, but I was curious. I will say, though, that I'm completely dragon obsessed and will do whatever I can to get to get my greedy paws on a gorgeous dragon like that. A dragon like that for $50 would be what I'd consider very reasonable. If you were willing to sell a dragon like that for a price such as that, I'd be very interested in purchasing it. :) If not, I understand.

Also, I don't have a credit card to use on eBay. Is there any chance that you guys use Amazon.com?

The dragon on ebay that sold for 49.99 didn't belong to me, it was a piece sold by the previous owner.You'd have to wrangle with ebay about payment options!
No we don't use Amazon yet.. but we are planning to.
If you are into painting , we do have "Paint Your Own Dragons" that we sell for less than that. Here is a link if you'd like to see: [link]
But you should be spending your time and money on textbooks!

Oh, ok, I see. :) That makes sense.

Ok cool! That's about the only way I'm able to buy things online. ^^ I'll keep on the lookout for that. And those paint-your-own dragons are quite a brilliant idea. May I ask what material they're made out of? Doubt it, but can they be fired in a kiln like ceramic pottery(Is into ceramics and sculpture)? I will definitely keep that in mind. :)

Textbooks...bah...and I gotta buy mine for next semester...joy...

These are not ceramic, so you can't fire them. They are cast in gypsum( very dense plaster).
It's the same the stuff our regular pieces are cast in. Takes acrylic paint real well.

This is one of the special one-of-a-kinds that we sold on Ebay.
They are test paints. We try out a crazy new colors and see if anyone likes any of them enough to possibly consider as anew production color.

The other time I hit black ice was in the car. Spun the thing around more than 360 degrees. That's really scarey on a four-lane highway!

There was one black ice incident I was only an observer for. There were two women in a car that didn't make a curve on a semi-country road. They sailed right off the road and into a plowed field, going for about 200 or more feet before coming to rest. Then they got out of their car and looked around, wondering how they ended up so far from the road. At least they were safe.

I spun out on that same curve one winter night, but on that occasion, it was about midnight, and I was thankful that I was alone on the road. It was only a two lane bi-directional. Still is in fact. I visit that very road once a week....

Another one that sold before I knew it existed. Darn it. I really like the gunmetal look on this one, and the green/aqua color is very striking. Oh, and the gold claws really set it off.....:woohoo:

Good work! You clearly made an exceptional piece that, like several others who beat me to it in posting, I really like!

My son's black male kitten often sits just like your dragon. The major difference is that Suki doesn't have wings, but he sure has claws and teeth.
