I want to do a dragon, too! I've seen several one stroke techniques, but haven't gotten it yet. Sad They always end up looking like a lizard Razz

I'm going to try a lizard, then put wings on it.
Psalmbook, I am in awe of your talent. If that is your first dragon, you put many of us to shame. I'll just keep practicing, and maybe I'll be half as good someday.

This is halfway through mine, haha. I add teeth and an evil eye, go over the spikes with metallix blue, and sometimes do belly marks in white. I don't usually do legs anymore, just more spikes.

I'd love to figure out a split cake dragon though - this one is pretty fast and the boys really like it, but it FEELS hit and miss sometimes. Does that make sense? I have a dragon mask (inspired by Vi's!) that I do as often as this one.

Love them all!

I'm thinking about going with an all black dragon. Seems like it would be faster.

I am in love with that blue dragon Shannon! Smile

I paint lots of dragons. It is one of my favorite designs. If the line is really long then I paint a sunset with a black outline of a Chinese style dragon. The boys like that because it is named Ninja Warrior...I name all of the designs that I use. Then I also use a dragon mask design from silly farm. I use the blue shimmer arty cake instead of the green one they use. Girls and boys both like it and it only takes about three minutes to do. Sorry that I don't have the link but if you go to you tube or silly farm it is easy to find.

I use one from Heather on Sillyfarm also, and it's one of my most popular with boys and girls. Takes me about 30 seconds when I don't fill it in, maybe about a minute when I add the lines on the wings, and the eyes/horns on the head.

This pic was my first attempt, so it's changed some since =). Seems like it is always different every time!!

Here is the tutorial for it. I hope this link works...It is a really quick design. She shows it on a little girl. I always outline everything that I do and add glitter. I like to talk to the kids and spend some time with them but the actual painting itself is not hard and is very quick. And, any time that I use the arty cakes to do stuff like dinosaurs, or alligators, lizards...you know the usual stuff. I always get lots of wows even from the really simple things like this mask design. I think that they add a lot of punch to the simpler designs.
