Ember 'Thumb' Dragon by KingMelissa Ember 'Thumb' Dragon by KingMelissa
A fire inspired dragon for an old friend's xmas present.

I'm rather fond of this one. She's a proud dragon.
I love how the colors turned out. At first, I thought it was going to look weird. The colors... red and the kinda golden brown I used... it reminded me of some xmas themed wrapping paper or decorations I never was too strongly fond of. Then it all came together nicely after I added the golden black and the light orange. <3
She kinda looks like lava too, doesn't she?
This is one I kinda wish I kept. But it's gifting season, and it was being made for my friend. -pout- ;P

Either way, I hope you all like her!
These were the shots I was most fond of, and while I would like to just have one good shot to show off the work, this little lady is detailed enough to call for multiple angles.
Besides, I couldn't focus and take time on getting the perfect shot at just the right angle. It was freezing cold outside, with maybe being a grand total of 5 degrees Fahrenheit. Roughly -15 Celsius? Now it's -2 degrees Fahrenheit. Mmm, toasty.
If anyone is wondering, the white background is snow.

this is amazing! Was this clay based? and how do you piece such little pieces? (I'm in a ceramics class.)

This was made with Sculpey Clay. :)
It's a pain to put little pieces together. Sometimes it takes a few times to place them. Gotta be really careful. 
Ceramics are so cool. :D

The lava effect on her back is very nice! She looks very serene, ready to take off and fly high in the heat of the sun!

Your dragons are irresistible to me! I seriously wish I could own each one!! (how greedy of me, I know) and at the same time, I wish everyone would buy one from you! Keep up the good work!

Thanks. :) I really love how this one turned out! I'm still sad that I gave it away. :(

Hehe. I'm glad you like them that much. <3
I wish more people would buy them too. hehe
