Atlas - The Red Dragon Sculpture by TheBlack-Arrow Atlas - The Red Dragon Sculpture by TheBlack-Arrow
What the hell is this?
I started sculpting? Eh, kinda....
My first try ever since, I don't know.... kindergarten, which was 10 years ago.

There will be more to come, but I'm rather slow at these. One I'm currently working on has lots of scales and I've just finished it's legs so expect it in about 2-3 months.
About this guy: You know the saying "Learn from your mistakes"? Well I learned so much I could write a book about it xD
Tools I used --> Super Sculpey Polymer Clay, scalpel, wire and a toothpick.
I started over 3 times and changed the pose 4 times til I was comfortable with it.
This was a gift for ~Atlas231. We were supposed to have a Christmas gift exchange but, well, Christmas was 3 months ago.

I hope you like it for the first try,
I'll do better next time I promise!

WOW, this is pretty awesome.
I have a question for you, I've tried sculpting dragons with Sculpey polymer clay before, but I could never get the wings to hold their shape. How'd you manage to keep this little guy in such good shape?

I made a basic wire armature for them and taped the "fingers" together, basically made a membrane with tape (just try to find tape that the clay will have no trouble sticking to) and then I put veeery thin layer of clay on each side. You can also use aluminum foil as it is thinner (:
