Rising Spectral dragon by Reptangle Rising Spectral dragon by Reptangle
We call this kind of dragons "Spectrals " because they have dichroic Crystal globes for eyes. These are both spooky and colorful, so it's both meanings of the word "spectral".
I airbrushed him in a compost pile of colors: copper, gold, red, green, brown .. and bits of blue and violet.
This guy was a special ebay piece in a color I call "Autumn Leaf".
He is a gypsum reproduction of my original sculpture , produced by Windstone Editions.

Fantastic!! :faint: :heart: May I ask, does the gypsum part make it very fragile ? I imagine resin casts would be more sturdy (in case of tragic drop-on-the-floor accident *__*) but also less economical, given the scale of the sculpt, right? Do you reckon ceramic or white(synthetic/dentist's?) gypsum is better for sculpt copies?:) I have two types at home, the brown/ceramic one is cheaper and the white one is supposed to be sturdier, but I discovered that a 1:1 mix of the two is best to work with :D It was actually hard to break it into pieces with a hammer when I tried it XD. I'm not sure if ceramic itself would chip or crack if dropped, but it probably would, unless maybe fired in a klin? *_* Are those dragons fired before paint is applied?

That's really amazing and impressive with all the details. So many individual scales and even details on those as well, particularly on the large chest scales. Also, the hind claws interacting with the tail like that bring to mind the weight and power of an actual serpent. There are so many dragons featured in so much art that I think it takes something special to make one stand out from the crowd, and this one does. I like the autumn colors and the way the just blend together so well. Is it as shiny in real life as it looks in the picture? It's really a very nice piece of art.
