Sculptober: Bug by DragonsAndBeasties
Sculptober: Bug
 I had the idea for a bumblebee dragon ages ago and this theme was the perfect opportunity to make one! She's so fat and happy, I just love her! :love:

And because I know a bunch of you will ask, the wings are printed laminated transparency paper.

Handsculpted from Premo sculpey,  stripes painted in acrylics, 2 inches tall

Sculptober: Hat by DragonsAndBeasties
Sculptober: Hat
When I saw the theme "hat" this little guy popped into my head. Domestic pet rats are called "fancy rats" so, I made a dapper fancy rat. I had a lot of fun working on the vest. So many little details! 

Handsculpted from Premo sculpey,  about 3 inches tall

Sculptober : Aquatic by DragonsAndBeasties
Sculptober : Aquatic
I've always wanted to make a seas serpent, but other projects would happen instead. With the theme being "aquatic" it was the perfect time to make this guy. I actually thought he'd be pretty simple but his fins were surprisingly tricky. I stayed up waaay too late on this one...again...but I love how he came out! :D

Man...I did not really think this sculptober thing through. I have such a hard time simplifying sculpts to be completed in ONE day. On top of that I am also doing inktober... I get so excited about the theme and just want to go nuts with it, but I have to keep it simple enough to complete in a day. Problem is, most days I don't even get to start the sculpture until about 8-9 PM... after Ember goes to bed, so I end up staying up late... usually until 4AM or so :dead: revamp 

Needless to say I am exhausted by the weekend. Haven't had this kind of schedule since college! BUT I have also loved this challenge. I've really enjoyed drawing out the ideas first and then sculpting them. I try to sculpt what I draw, and in turn, I learn how I should have drawn it after making it in 3D. I learn something new about each method every time. I feel like it's making my sculpts and drawings better all at once. While a brutal schedule, it's kind of awesome how much I've learned from myself in just a couple weeks. I highly encourage all you sculptors out there to draw and sculpt in tandem. It's a very enlightening experience! :D

Sooo I may go on a little bit of a ratty kick for a few days. I just lost my ratty Badger, and whenever I lose a ratty I tend to make them in clay for awhile to cope. I'm working on some more candy corns rats at the moment, but I may do a couple normal rats as well over the weekend. I'm planning to have a sale either mid-week or next weekend. I like to have a good decent amount for my sales so many people can get something. :)

I miss my little Badger rat... he was such a sweety. He fought for about a week before what I think was  pituitary tumor took him. I watched him take his last breath and quietly pass... which is rare for rats. They almost always have horribly traumatic deaths that need veterinary assistance. He went here comfortably in his home with his family, which is some solace to me. I have two ratties left, but they are breaking down too. Their little bodies just start to degrade after the two year mark. Both are losing feeling in their back legs, and Whiskey has pretty bad respiratory troubles, so he may go soon too, and not very peacefully :(

Awww ratties, such bright little stars that burn out too soon. I love them but they break my heart every time. Why such a sweet creature should be cursed with such a short lifespan is beyond me...

Sorry to get all sad, I just miss my ratty :sad: 
I immortalized him in clay though! Made this little guy grey in his honor :)

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?

Do you plan to put your sketches together in a coloring book of sorts?  I'd love to buy one for my school so that we can give the kinder-kids something neat to color during the lunch period.  I figured I'd ask first before I just downloaded and printed those images out, 'cause otherwise that's just rude on so many levels.
