Little Rock dragon Crested gecko color by Reptangle Little Rock dragon Crested gecko color by Reptangle
The first "Little Rock Dragons" we produced were cast in cement for outdoor use. We no longer cast with cement , so I have started painting gypsum versions of this sculpture.
This on is airbrushed in colors suggested by the markings of a Crested gecko.
He has glass eyes.
This guy was sold on Ebay.

Little Rock Dragon Crested Gecko Color, a stunning work from *Reptangle. Feels extremely realistic, with an amazing attention to details and a perfect colour palette. ( Featured by SRudy )

This is soo awesome! How did you get the bumpy scaly texture?

I hand sculpted most of the texture onto the clay original,  and then refined the details on a gypsum reproduction. The molds were made from the finished gypsum reproduction.
 I occasionally have used a stamp I made, to apply bumpy scale texture to the clay, but I don't remember if I did or not on this piece.
 this pic is of the larger rock dragon in clay, I did sculpt all those scales in by hand. This is a really hard clay called "castaline"

Unfortunately not very often lately; I'm tied up with a pretty demanding art project at the moment. But I keep plugging away when I can!

And I'm likewise glad to have found you again! I remember you from Elfwood (and, of course, because I own a gorgeous little family of your Windstone Dragons). You'll definitely get some more patronage from me in the future! ;]
