Ridayah by DragonsAndBeasties Ridayah by DragonsAndBeasties
So this one I have had to wait to post for about a month, because it was a birthday surprise to someone who follows me here on DA. Their friend :icontinuleaf: commissioned this of their character as a gift! Here is the reference used: [link] [link]

I had a lot of fun with those wings! Some frustration as well, but mostly fun. I've never made feathery wings, but I think they came out sufficiently fluffy! I really like the half webbed half feathered look. :D

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 still love this! FYI!! I have made a sprite after this, and I would like to make sure it is ok before I post it. Just in case you see this first, I'm PMing it to you. I will mention you and tinuleaf in the description, don't worry. I'll also contact tinuleaf to see if she'll let me post it. I don't think there will be a problem, but it's always nice to check, right?

This is such an beautiful piece of work. I just love your wings. I might have to try something like it. Mine are pretty simplistic compared to this. Beautiful, can't say it enough.

I can't tell you how amazing your work is, and how hard my jaw hit the floor when I opened up the package and was shown this wonderful gift. (I think China's still mailing my jaw back since they found it!) The details and accuracy are simply stunning, and it has a permanent place on my desk right next to my computers, where I see it every day, and it makes me smile.

Thank you so much for your fabulous work on this, and thank you :icontinuleaf: for the wonderful surprise!

Amazing, beautiful work here, on the feathered wings and tail! I love the sweetly solemn look on the dragon's face, and am in love with the idea of the book: did you make the book from scratch?

This is so cute! :D add some spikes make it blue and it will look like saphira form eragon(the movie..... cause they changed up her style from book to movie... >_> they made her fluffy instead of like gem for scales :( ) ETHER WAY, I like her in both the book and movie. XD and ether way this is so cute :D
