Big Cat Dragons by DragonsAndBeasties Big Cat Dragons by DragonsAndBeasties
These guys are all based on concepts I drew a little while back. I've just now finished all four main colors, so I can show them in a group shot! Here is the rough concept art:
Big Cat Inspired Dragon Designs by DragonsAndBeasties
I really love how they all turned out. It's really hard to pick a favorite! But I've always loved leopard spots so I think that one is my favorite. Which one is yours?

These guys will all go up for auction on ebay soon. I'll post links once I have them :)

I'll try to get a snow leopard made eventually, and some of the other fun color versions, but I'm probably gonna take a little break and work on some other stuff for a bit.

Hand-sculpted from colored polymer clay, with details painted in acrylics. The tiger is biggest and stands 3.25 inches tall.

I JUST FRICKIN' DIIIIIIIIED!
Question 1) How did you do the patterns?
Question 2) How do you do the wings?
Question 3) Why didn't the dragons fall apart while you were making them?
Question 4) How long did it take you to do the hair?

Absolutely fabulous, I love how you made the lion dragon's mane slowly go from tan to orange to black, and the pattern on the leopard dragon is beautifully spaced and colored. I also notice how you made the horns on the tiger dragon striped like it's pelt (whether it would be fur or scales in real life, I'm not sure) and I think it is a nice touch to the design, as well as the spots that walk along the mane/spines of the cheetah. All around, amazing attention to detail! :D (Big Grin)  I love it!
