Sculptober : Party by DragonsAndBeasties
Sculptober : Party
I know a dragon in a party hat is an obvious choice, but I thought it would be cute to make a little ratty giving him a tiny present. I really love putting rats with my dragons lately. 

I would have liked to do a dragon tea party, but there is now way I could get that done in the one day timeframe. But I'll get to it after Sculptober sometime. :)

Handsculpted from Premo sculpey,  eyes painted in acrylics, 2.5 inches tall

Commissions are CLOSED indefinitely, but a rough pricing guide can be found here: dragonsandbeasties.deviantart.…

Please visit my FAQ page dragonsandbeasties.deviantart.… before asking questions about techniques and materials. Just about every question I get is covered there. I’m not trying to be rude, I just get tired of answering the same questions over and over ^^; 

Sculptober: Best Friends by DragonsAndBeasties
Sculptober: Best Friends
I had a reeeally hard time with this theme. I did the ying yang rats but they didn't seem like quite I revisited my weekend sketch of the mouse friends eating cookies. I thought it would be pretty cute to have them sharing just one cookie that could come apart! Kind of a play on the classic friendship necklace idea but with cookie mice! 

Also, I learned to make clay cookies! Neato! They made me hungry the whole time I was practicing them. Hubby ended up going out and getting some cookies cuz they were taunting us too much :XD:

I experimented with a few different techniques for the cookie, but this tutorial was by far the most helpful:

So I initially sculpted this for the Best Friends theme of sculptober, but it just didn't seem enough to me, so this is not the official sculptober submission. But they're still super sweet and I love them! :D
I can do it! I think I can do it...*dies* :dead: revamp 

Sculptober has been brutal! BUT I did a tiny bit better this week and the latest night was only til 3am...wait no the sea dragon was til 5... but still! Better-ish? I kind of love and hate this challenge. It's really pushed me creatively, in both sculpting and drawing, but jeez I can't keep this kind of schedule up much longer. And the really crazy part is that there is absolutely nothing MAKING me do it. There are no prizes, no glory, just a grueling soul-crushing sculpting schedule. I told my partners in crime :iconcrystalcookart: and :iconlittlefatdragons: that I would do every challenge or die trying, and they totally rallied. They have been pushing hard to get these done every single day too! I think some people that initially took up the challenge have kind of burnt out, as we've seen fewer submissions on the FB page. I don't blame you guys though! It's hard! :slump: 

Needless to say I am very much looking forward to a little break over the weekend. We'd definitely die if we didn't at least take the weekends off from sculptober! Gotta recharge! 

So, I spent my evening finally updating the freakin pricing guide. It was really outdated with old work examples that aren't really relevant anymore. So now there is a shiny new one! Hurray! Pricing Guide 2014

Also, the little cocoa dragon is now up on ebay for those interested. I will probably be putting the sea dragon up there soon as well. I may put one or two other Sculptober dudes up there this week, but the vast majority will be going in the next etsy sale, which I was gonna maybe have this weekend but I dunno. My brain is fried...will keep you guys posted :XD:

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?

I don't know if it was you or someone else, but I *think* I remember a tutorial for clay gradients on your etsy account. I could be wrong.

Do you paint the eyes, or do you have stickers?
DragonsAndBeasties Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
