bronze colored Flion tm by Reptangle bronze colored Flion tm by Reptangle
This "Flion " sculpture has been retired in the realistic lion colors.That may not of been a great idea, because how else can you paint a lion if we wanted to ever re-issue this sculpture? Well, I found out you can paint Flions any color you want, just like cats and unicorns.
This one has been test painted in a bronze-like color with copper decorations on his wings.
We probably will never re-issue this exact sculpture again because it has too many defects, but I may fix it up and re-do it someday.

Stunning. This is one of my favorites.

and if you do ever rerelease it, this is a lovely color scheme. It'd be cool to see a pegasus painted like this, the wing spots, especially.

Melody. the Flion looks calm and powerful.
I do think its patina looks good. What do you mean by "too many defects". Is that bronze casting problems or what?
And what's the size of this Flion ?

Ooooh, the Flion. I have one of these in natural lion colors. How else can you paint a lion??? Well there are partially striped lions (tigons), or, you could paint it like the ligers, pale stripes, or, you could do a white lion (ala Kimba the White Lion or the white lions in Las Vegas), or you could do a paler, golden lion or even one of the black maned lions (I forget the species name)... Give him a gold crown and he would harken to the lion on the Island of Misfit Toys, or he would more likely look almost religious in theme...

I know, add a winged lamb with him to complete the lion and lamb theme....

Or do the winged lamb separate and let people pair them.... A winged lamb would be so cute and I can imagine the people with babies liking them.... Then do the occasional black lamb....

He originally came with a lamb! We haven't found the mold or "master" for that one though. Almost nobody ever bought the lamb, just the lion!
I wonder if I have a pic of it somewhere...THAT is a really rare piece!

Was it a winged lamb? I wonder why it wouldn't do well... That makes me think the audience that your dragons and other critters hit might not be that turned on by a lamb for some reason. Trying to dope out the fantasy market can be really tricky, since trends ebb and flow. I still remember the years way back when every convention artist was doing dragon cats. Dunno why, but it was a really hot fad for awhile. If you do find the lamb, I'd love to see a picture of it!:D

No, it was an ordinary unwinged lamb. A winged lamb probably would of sold better!
