Cute Little Teal Dragon by LitefootsLilBestiary Cute Little Teal Dragon by LitefootsLilBestiary
Another colour combination I tried, I really like this one's pose with him holding his tail. He was made for a market I am going to at the end of the month, I swear I'd keep them all if I could, this one came out very neat - I think I have the wing construction at a point where I am consistently happy with the result and it's 100% structurally sound.

After baking he was selectively glazed with glossy varnish on his horns, eyes and teeth.
Made of polymer clay. He is approximately 4cm in length.

4Cm in length? So these dragons are really tiny? You photograph them so well and close up its hard to really tell how big or small they are. I like how you shaped and painted his underbelly. Teal and Orange look good together. :nod:

thanks :) yip, I think they're on the smaller side of the ones you find here on dA. I really need to find a way to show scale other than putting my hand in there.

Get a small ruler or measuring tape. The kind that taiilors use to measure fabric so you can lay it nice and flat on the picture, or simply see if you can find an accurate PDF file or something, print one out, and just have a little quick paper ruller with CM and inches on it. Us silly Murikans gotta b awl speshul an uz inches cuz we wanna b diffrunt frum erry1 elz :B  That, and Jimmy Carter failed to get us to switch to metric. :XD:

Hehehe, I can try do something like that - just don't want it to spoil the photo. Contemplating putting them in a staged background, similarly to how Leslie, creator of Beastlies does it. But yup a ruler is about the most global object I can use, even my hands don't really help as they're tiny themselves >.<

Oh don't feel bad about that, tiny hands for tiny dragons. Small hands are great for crafts. My hands are big and my fingers are long and thick, so things like sewing or detailed painting and hell I can't even play chords on a guitar well because of that. This I think is why I build lego MOCs and play bass. I'm crafty, but in a bigger way. :lol:

Can you link me to this other person you mentioned? I'm curious to see her work to. :)

Oh I see. :lol: Those are indeed cute little buggers. I can see why you two might be friends. She does cute little monster bug eyed thingies, you do adorable dragons.

Yeah I think borrowing her style of having somehting in the photo to relate the piece to in size will help. :)
