Sand Male dragon by Reptangle Sand Male dragon by Reptangle
This dragon is airbrushed in a color I call "sand". If he looks familiar, this color scheme resembles the original "brown" color that we produced these dragons in, many years ago.
He is about nine inches tall.
This is a gypsum reproduction of my original sculpture produced by Windstone Editions.

I really love the splash of blue in the scales and especially the wings. It really makes this fella pop.

Yeah, there is some dragon character that has coloring just like this. I didn't know that when I painted this.

If this were a color option on your site, I'd probably be looking a little less at the Silver or the Emerald Peacock, and be considering this one reallll hard, especially if it were on a Mother Dragon :heart: It is truly an amazing coloration! :)

Yes, I like it a lot too, but it is a little harder to paint than I thought it would be.

Really? Hmm.. I would have thought it wouldn't be too hard, either.. but then I've had paintings that have done that to me too ;) so I know the feeling! You did a wonderful job working around whatever difficulties it handed you! :)

I never did see too many of the brown colored dragons in person but they have always fascinated me when I saw them in the catalogues~

This color scheme is really pretty~ :D

Really? I thought id let you know just in case it was. It looks like only the eyes are painted, the rest is just the original white cast. I think, anyways.

windstone stuff gets knocked off constantly.It is usually that dragon that gets copied. It is a big pain.

Ah ha, I had wondered what the old color scheme was...I picked up a "brown" male dragon from a second hand shop aaages ago! Something had happened to the upper surface of his wings, so much of the paint was missing. Still a gorgeous piece. :)

This doesn't look like a Charizard, don't worry. People that like pokemon will find anything remotely close!
People call Vantid a pokemon all the time.

Sorry about replying to a reallyyyyyy old post but...

Dang it! I like pokemon but I didn't make a connection. Until I saw this post of yours. Now I can't unsee the slight resemblance. Not a whole lot, but a little. Cannot unsee!

I just love this color scheme. I have a fledgling in sand and working on getting a curlie. If more become available as LP pieces I might have to get a whole family :)
