Jolly by DragonsAndBeasties Jolly by DragonsAndBeasties
I absolutely adore little Jolly. He is just so. Frikkin. Happy. He reminds me of a playful puppy with a bone :XD:

It is very rare for me to make a full standing dragon because they are soooo much more work, but I had this idea in my head and had to make him. And I know some of you will ask why no wings??? Well, I started making him wings actually, but they threw him off. I love his lines so much with that curved tail, and the wings ruined the effect. He is already so puppy-like, that I personally do not miss the wings at all :D

He'll be up in the shop soon. See my journal for details: [link]

Commissions are currently closed, but pricing can be found here: [link] for future reference

Hand-sculpted from Premo Sculpey clay, about 3 inches tall

QUESTIONS???
Please visit my FAQ page [link] before asking questions about techniques and materials. Just about every question I get is covered there. Iím not trying to be rude, I just get tired of answering the same questions over and over ^^;

I don't miss the wings either, it just gives him a certain look! And the candy cane is so great! Man, your dragons sell so fast... I can't wait for you to start making Christmas dragons again! And I also love the color scheme! Kao Emoji-04 (Cute) [V1]

I love the detail in the head where the candy cane is, the way it's cheeks really squish up and it's teeth are showing.

do you have any tips on getting such a smooth finish? also do you paint your gloss on? how do you get it to not have brush lines if you do.

Awww, he's so cute. I love the darker red scale accents. He's very reminiscent of a tiger to me, for some reason. Love him! :heart:

I had the same feeling as you about the puppy look--it's like, "Look, Mom, what I found!" *wags his dragon-tail* :XD:

Is there a trick to keeping the white clay from becoming pink? That happens almost every time I work with white and red clay.

Haha no worries. And believe me I struggle with keeping white clay from turning pink. I avoid using red and white together when I can but Christmas, you really can't avoid it. Washed my hands about every 5 minutes making this guy :XD:

Thanks! Yeah Christmas is my downfall, but then again, I have a red panda that I called Pabu the Pink, so it's a problem year round. I definitely will wash my hads more. I rarley do.
