Spring 'Thumb' Dragon by KingMelissa Spring 'Thumb' Dragon by KingMelissa
A spring inspired Dragon.
Because Spring is my favorite season and I cannot wait for this godforsaken winter to go away!
-wills the snow to melt-
Often, spring is just dirt with new leaves starting to sprout. As well as flower petals littering the ground. :)
Gods, I love spring.
For this one's base, I have a clear base, with a white streak going through it. To me, that's perfect because that can symbolize winter melting away. :)

Other dragons like her:


Do note that these dragons are put on a small 'pebble' base after they are finished.
I take pictures of them as "thumb" dragons because it's cute and I enjoy holding them that way before I secure them to their base.


Handmade by me.
Design belongs to me. :)

I'm always ashamed to make a comment because I don't what to say besides it's awesome, very cool or things like that, you work is always well done, the only thing is the eye's line, it need to be more precise but I'm not a expert so screw myself, don't pay me attention XP.
I find that combination of color very attractive.

There's nothing wrong with that. :)
If it helps, critiques can often be what you like or dislike about a piece and why.
May I ask how the eye's line isn't very precise? I stare at my own work a lot, so I might not be seeing what you're seeing.

You should have more confidence too. :) Just because you're not an expert, doesn't mean you can't give your opinion to make something better. :nod:

I'll trying ta explain myself a better (looking in my short english vocabulary), I tried to mean the lines aren't quiet smooth, a little rough, maybe that explain it better. I have that problem when I do paint, it look a little shaky, no very firm, :nuu: need more practice with my english.

Oooh. Yeah. They're not perfect, and I admit that.
Though, I think part of the problem is the paint beneath the black paint. Makes it hard to get a smooth line. Plus, the eyes are tiny. So I do my best. ^^;
That's alright. I understood what you meant.
Feel free to practice all you want. :D

The sping time is always great, the snow melts and you can start playing outside without 5 layers on XD

Spring and Fall are my two favorite seasons really. I can't wait to see all the green coming back, I'm sick of all the white stuff on the ground. ><

I'm sick of all the snow too. And the ice. Yesterday, I kept slipping. My shoes have terrible traction, and the ice in the parking lots are just terrible! :(
It hurts to try to catch yourself from falling when you're on a slippery surface.
Spring is the best though~

Blegh....not fun. I need to take it easy when there is lots of snow out. Was driving the other day and started to slide while driving down a back road.

Yeah. I hate slippery roads. :( Which is why winter sucks so much.
For the first time in the years of driving, I recently was unable to make it up a hill, because my car couldn't get traction on the ice.
The hill was covered, and I was just not moving. So I had to back up and go the other way. :(

Slippery roads SUCK! Yeah, it is bad here at times, lots of hills. Just makes me glad that our driveway is flat and not uphill or downhill. We get pretty bad ice at times here during the winter.

Wow, that is so beautiful! I love the gold shimmer on her horns, did you use gold Pearl Ex for that or is it gold clay mixed with the green?
And only, how do you get all those little spots so perfect? Are they just dotted on with paint and a brush?

KingMelissa Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Student General Artist
Thank you. :) I'm glad you like it.
I use paint. I know a lot of people think paint is lesser than colored clay, but that's what I prefer. ^^;
But yeah. The little spots are all paint. :) Takes a few coats to get the spots to pop out a bit too. It's fun, but time consuming at times.

Reminds me of Celebi from Pokemon. Maybe it's the eyes...
