I'll be listing the valentine critters in my etsy shop tomorrow night (Monday) about 6pm California time. I'll add a few more pics to the gallery tomorrow that will also be available.

I can only guarantee these by Valentine's day in the states at this point. Sorry I didn't get more made sooner. I just got so involved with plushie experimentation ^^;

It's nice to be back to sculpting. I know some people were concerned I'd just dropped it entirely and moved to plushies, so don't worry about that. Sculpting will always be my greatest artistic passion! It's just good to try something new now and then. I've even started messing with colored pencils and acrylic painting as well. I actually signed up for a couple art classes. They're not exactly expert level classes, just community ones, but I'm surprised at how much I'm actually learning, or rather re-learning what I have long forgotten from college. I'll be sitting there thinking, "Yeah I know that. And that. Aaaand that....whoa wait what? Go back and explain that again!" :XD:

In traditional drawing/ painting I have always been terrible with lighting and shadows, so that is what I'm trying to focus on improving in my colored pencil class. The teacher had the brilliant idea that I sculpt a grey dragon and then bring it to class to draw. Basically, it's dragon still-life! Genius! I very much enjoy that class :D

I'm also taking acrylic painting, because I am awful at landscapes. I think that is because I much prefer to just make the character and get incredibly bored having to give them a setting. I'm trying it out anyway and it's not too bad. Though, I just ITCH to paint a big freaking dragon in the middle of it all. It takes all my willpower to focus on just painting the landscape. I'm honestly a bit bored with the class, so it may just not be my thing O_o

I think I will definitely try to do the occasional dragon drawing/ painting. They're a fun break from sculpting when I need it. And I forgot just how much I freaking LOVE colored pencils :love:

I think it is good that you do many mediums. Concentrating on one thing must be boring sometimes. Like wanting to stretch, and not being able to.
I would love to see a dragon painting. You once made a small dragon laying on a pile of gold. It be be so cool to paint that with a inside castle kind of background. :D
