Mother coiled dragon in Sand color by Reptangle Mother coiled dragon in Sand color by Reptangle
I love this color combination. Soft tan and cream with pale blue accents. Reminds me of the beach. Unfortunately, this color is tough to paint. Whenever you airbrush a light shade color over a light color base , every tiny paint defect shows. You can't hide paint splats if you screw up!
So I only painted one of these in this color so far.
She has metallic blue glass eyes and guards a gold plated pewter egg. She is about 4 inches wide.
Thisis a gypsum reproduction of my original sculpture , produced by Windstone Editions. [link]

She is so beautiful and so soft. I personally like the more prominent blue as we saw on the father and the youngblood, but this gal is still gorgeous.

This is beautiful. And every angle holds a different expression. First looks a little worried, the second protective, and the third innocent. Very cute!

so cool!
the dragon looks like it's looking at the egg in the first angle, and then at you at the other angles. if I didn't have to share a bedroom, i'd buy it and put it where i'd see it all the time c:

The pupils of the glass eyes are set on the back of the eye, so they seem to move a little.

That's really interesting. I've never airbrushed, so I just assumed a light color over a similar base would be kinder to you! (It is a great color combination though.)

It is because the top color is dusted on lightly to get that shaded tan color. It isn't an opaque color, so if a tiny airbrush splat occurs, you can't just cover it up with more paint, like you can with metallic colors.

Wow! I really love this one O.O I love all of your sculptures but I have a thing for mommy dragons X3 The colors on her are gorgeous too and resemble the colors of my own dragon character! :dummy: Maybe that's why I love it so much XD
