Commission: Aquamarine Dragon by Magweno Commission: Aquamarine Dragon by Magweno
The aquamarine dragon was commissioned by ~PandoraDragonWolf8, she asked for something similar to Uisge except bigger. This was the original sketch I did for her.
[link]

He has a 3ft wingspan, his wings are made from latex, rubber and wire so the fingers and arms can be bent. He has a wire "skeleton" so his limbs can be bent, his head and feet are sculpted in Fimo Soft. The spines on his back are premo. His tail fin is fabric, wire and latex. He was airbrushed with acrylics, the "scales" under his wings are resin. He also has suede belly scales, which have been glued on. Ahh don't know what else to say...

Here's a size reference

you can also see a goodly proportion of all the materials used to make his wings!

I used this tutorial for the "water" effect: [link]
I used this excellent font: [link]

I can't remember off the top of my head but it was probably at the higher end, 250-300 + P&P

aw bless, I'm pretty sure style isn't one of the things I have but then it might be like cooking, when you can't smell it and everyone else down the street is holding their noses like "what the hell is that stench"
