Tiger Secret Keeper Dragon by Reptangle Tiger Secret Keeper Dragon by Reptangle
This dragon is called the "Secret Keeper". She is a large dragon, about 18 inches tall and weighs 32 pounds. I airbrushed her like a tiger with acrylic paint. She has glass eyes.
This is a gypsum reprodution of my original sculpture, produced by Windstone Editions.
She WAS on ebay! Auction closed May 22. [link]

I love your creations! You've inspired me to make sculptures myself, but I have a lack of materials and my budget is short...

You don't need expensive things to make sculpture! Use whatever you've got. I started with wet toilet paper and aluminum foil.
People make gorgeous things out of paper mache',bent wires, drift wood, anything.

that's true... Bur I think of making BJD dolls or sculptures kinda like yours, and then I need at least super sculpey to make them last longer... And I'm intending to paint them as well, so I can't use aluminium foil for that :/

I saw this one on ebay! I so wish i could had afforded to buy her! This would be awesome to see some dragons like this as limited editions. Any plans to do a white tiger or clouded leopard patterns?

This was produced by Windstone editions, but I did the original sculpture and airbrushed this one...so I sort-of made it.
This dragon was auctioned on ebay, so she has been sold ( she went for over $2,000!! US).
However, we do have a website, if you'd like to see some more of these dragons at more normal prices! [link]
There are pictures in the "shop" area and the "product gallery" under the "community" button. Tons of stuff on that website.

Lung Fu Mo Shi!

Jackie Chan, as a young man had a nickname (the above), and he was known as "Tiger-Dragon" among his Chinese acrobat compatriots.

What a perfect fit!

I love the pattern on the wing membranes! Awesome!

You know what? I have a friend who speaks Chinese! I don't know why I never asked her about it! Dang, I was at her house a week ago too!

I will write to her for clarification. I got the phrase from Jackie Chan's autobiography. That was the definition given in the book, but it's been ages since I read it. Melanie can give me the real low down on it. I'll let you know what I find out.

In other news, still getting loads of June beetles on the front steps. We're beginning to see the tawny smaller ones now. We also scampered out this evening for the solar eclipse. If my pics came out any good, I'll post some.

More later~!

I posted a few pics of my june beetles in my " collections " folder. We didn't get an eclipse!
I'm guessing that the tiger part is "shi" since "shishi" is the proper name for "foo-dogs" which are supposed to be lions, but close enough.
