Hatching dragons by Reptangle Hatching dragons by Reptangle
The dragon on the left is our OLD hatching dragon design. This one was very difficult to paint.
The one on the right is the first test paint I just did of new version. He is going to be cast in two pieces so we can paint dragon and the egg separately.
No more paint drips on the eggshells!

I literally just lost my dragon(same style as the dragon on the left but orange and gold and a few odds and ends in color) to our move. 
He'd been around since I'd been a child and when I inherited him from my dad, I never thought I'd open our box of breakables and find him shattered.
I just about lost my mind and try as I might, I couldn't sort him back together again. So that was a piece of history lost. UGH. Damn movers.

Needless to say, as much as I adore the detail in the newer dragon, I have an affinity for the older baby. :heart: But then again, I'm definitely biased. :love:

Aw! Some of those can be patched up good as new, but sounds like yours is toast.
 Even though those are discontinued, you can probably find a replacement on Ebay pretty cheap.

I have considered it multiple times but in the end opted that it wouldn't be quite the same. 
Heh. No worries. He was a treasure while we had him and I deeply appreciate(d) your work. :)

 The hatching dragon on the left was the first dragon I sculpted when we started Windstone Editions.  We've been producing these guys for over 25 years now!

Oh my god it was my childhood favorite thing I've ever owned. I cherished that little withe dragon so much! I bought it from Midevil times in Florida! Do you still sell that look?

That is wonderful!
I am not sure what you mean by "that look" exactly, but here is a link to the dragon section in our online store, if you'd like to more of my dragons: windstoneeditions.com/catalog/…

The red colors ( Ruby and Red Fire) are discontinued because we were having trouble with the red paint. It is a shame, I loved the reds.

aww, me too, especially that little guy with the blue eyes! My hubby and I have personal dragon characters, mine is green with golden eyes and his, red with blue eyes! My little green hatchling has red eyes, but I figured it was close enough! :D

Ah gosh! I still own one of your old ones, in Peacock. The new one is quite beautiful... Maybe I can snag one in the future, as company for my little fellow.

Oh goodness, no! He's gorgeous. ^__^ I think we're always our own worst critics. I can't imagine looking at this and thinking anything other than "Yeah, I'm awesome." Heheheh.

I know that design! My grandmother had the hatching dragon and it's family. After she died we took home all her dragon figures and have them on our mantel ever since.

Oh my gosh, Ms. Melody, how cute! I have two of the old hatchers (an emerald one was my very first Windstone dragon when I was like, eleven years old!) but I will definitely be adding a new style hatcher to my collection :)

This is sure to help production =) Will you be revisiting old paint jobs for those who collect one of each for each color?
The best thing I find on it is the gentle smile it has compared the the old hatchling.

I like the breaks in the eggshell of the old version better, though. Very delicate and realistic. The dragon itself is very adorable :)

Cute! I do think the quality on the new one is a bit better, as well as it being easier to fabricate for you. All in all an excellent addition to the family!

I love the new hatching dragon! He looks like he really belongs with the family, like I could imagine this guy growing up to look like the father dragon.
