Drubert - The Sad Dragon by LitefootsLilBestiary Drubert - The Sad Dragon by LitefootsLilBestiary
I drew this guy back in 2005 and while blue is my favourite colour I thought he'd look good in green, the undercoat was airbrushed on and subsequent layers were painted, he looks a little flat in the photograph, but I absolutely love how his back turned out. He has taken me 5 days from concept to completion.

Made of a blend of Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm polymer clay. Painted with liquid acrylic paint and varnished to a matt finish and glossy eyes.
He is approximately 10cm in height (3 or 4 times larger than my usual work).

You can find the unpainted version here:

(I had purchased :iconemilysculpts:'s new ebook "Creature Sculpt" 2 months ago as I really love how detailed she gets her work. While I found a large portion of the book is aimed at first time sculptors there are tons of tips and tricks I have learned, plus it just inspired me to at least try something and I have been wanting to make a larger sculpt for quite a while.)

EDIT: Thank you for all the wonderful comments, favourites, llamas and new watchers. Although Drubert appears sad, I'm sure he's very happy today with all the virtual hugs being passed on. Still can't believe he made it to DD. So Happy :D I'll definitely be doing more sculpts like him in the near future.
