Serpentine Old Warrior dragon by Reptangle Serpentine Old Warrior dragon by Reptangle
This is the prototype Old Warrior dragon painted in the test color, Serpentine. This test paint has little spots of metallic light blue. This was the first of the Serpentine pieces I painted, he has been sitting around awhile. The color was inspired by a photo of an unusually colorful iguana.
The prototype Warrior was the first version of this sculpture we produced. He has more battle scars than the version we produce now.
This is a reproduction of my original sculpture produced by Windstone Editions. I airbrushed this gypsum casting with acrylic paint. He has glass eyes and gold plated pewter horns.He is almost 12 inches long.

Absolutely my favorite dragon sculpt for the Windstone Editions.  What prompted the changes in number of scars between prototype and production, if I may ask? Was it a matter of logistics, molding, etc.?

When we sold these Old Warrior dragons to gift stores, the people who unpacked the order often assumed that the scars were casting defects or shipping damage!
 So,  I polished off all of the scars that didn't look intentional.

This is absolutely gorgeous dear! I love the way the coloring of the dragon really brings out it's gold eyes! I'd DEFINITELY invest in this one if I wasn't so broke. ROFL The warm earthtones and blue highlights is just a beautiful combination. You did a fantastic job, and I'm sure whoever has this little guy will give it a great home!

My Dad saw the one on ebay and his exact response was," That looks just like serpentine! That is perfect! Serpentine on a serpent!" It certainly is an interesting color.

Yes. The main colors are airbrushed with some hand panting on the details.

I gotta say, I really like the additional battle scars. It gives the dragon a much more realistic feel.
