If you haven't seen these dragons yet, yes they are inspired by "the dress". After a long and pointless debate over that stupid thing with my husband (we each saw the opposite colors), we decided it didn't really matter and was in fact both colors. It really just depended on perception. And so he jokingly suggested I make a dragon couple in those colors. The colors actually go really nicely, and I ended up putting way more time into these than I ever really planned to. At least SOMEthing good came out of all that dress nonsense, right?

Anyway, the set is now up on ebay for anyone interested. They would make a fantastic cake topper, for all of you out there STILL trying to request one from me. Commissions are closed indefinitely guys, sorry ^^;

So if you have been dying for a dragon couple from me, now is your chance: www.ebay.com/itm/Opposites-Att…
Opposites Attract by DragonsAndBeasties

Man...I feel like I post so little anymore. Takes me forever to finish things... I've been trying to relax more and not push myself to work so much. I got reeeally burnt out during the holidays, and in general tend to be a bit of a workaholic. But I realized I was watching Ember all day, keeping house and running errands, and then jumping right into sculpting once she'd go to bed and stay up waaay too late on projects. I was basically working solid everyday, with pretty much no down time. So I've gotten back into gaming, and even reading. I've been playing Majora's Mask recently, never actually beat it way back when on the 64. I've enjoyed spending more time NOT worrying so much about being crazy productive, and I've been happier for it. It's just made me realize everyone needs some downtime in their day, or they just become a machine. I of course still sculpt when I can, but I don't try to do so every little chance I get. It's just not worth the stress and potential burnout. If I feel inspired to work, I work. If not, I don't push it.

It is funny though, sometimes I think back on those days before I had Ember and wonder what on earth did I do with all that free time?! Definitely took it for granted :XD:

Opposites Attract

I adore this couple. They started as a ‪#‎thedress‬ joke after my husband and I saw that bizarre thing and we each saw the opposite colors. I was sure he was trolling me and vice versa, and we had quite the debate over it. Ultimately we decided it was both, and it was a reeeeally stupid thing for everyone to get all crazy over. So I call this "Opposites Attract". I think their colors go together beautifully! At least SOMEthing good came from all that dress nonsense right?

For all of you out there looking for a dragon wedding cake topper (I STILL get several requests a week O_o) now is your chance! Here is a link to the ebay auction: www.ebay.com/itm/Opposites-Att…?

Sorry to go missing for a while. I spent so much time on those little angel dragons then promptly got sick... and not just me, Ember too! So we've had a lovely sick week together. Man I always hated getting sick before but sick with a kid? A billion times harder. BUT we're better now! :D

Anyway, I've listed the two little angel dragons on ebay for those interested.

I always wanted to revisit my angel dragon in a mini version. So I made these little guys! I felt like the original angel dragon's feathers weren't quite right, they looked a bit more like leaves than feathers, so I made sure these ones were better. I will ALWAYS hate working with white clay, but I always love how it looks. White dragons are beautiful, even if they are a huge pain in the butt. 

They have gold powder dusted onto gold clay to make them really shine. Everything was made with colored clay, though the eyes are painted. 

Now I'm off to make dark angel dragons! :D

I'm finally back guys! I took everyone's advice and took some time off from sculpting, and now I'm ready to dive back in! I think I just got so burnt out from the holiday months, I needed a good long break to recover. Now the ideas are buzzing and I'm loving my clay again. I have managed to get a bit of work done in time for a small Valentine Sale. There isn't nearly as much as I usually have for my sales, but I wanted to at least offer SOMEthing before Valentines Day for those hoping to give a dragon as a gift. 

As usual, most of these will be available in my etsy shop, and a few will go up on ebay. The couples and the fluffy red dragon are now up on Ebay, but everything else will go up on etsy tomorrow at 4pm Pacific. Sorry for the late notice...Friday kinda snuck up on me O_o

I still get asked constantly for dragon wedding cake toppers... if I were to make some, what wedding colors are most popular right now? Of course the bride is always white but what are the favorite accent colors these days?
