please do!
I tried one this morning but it did'nt work out. Shouldn't think about it, just do it...

Just in case; you see the head is just a swirl? Wolfe Brothers showed it to me and I was flabbergasted with it!

Oh, thanks Maaike! I appreciate the swirl head tip! Have not had a wolfe bros class...had a pashur class, he quickly did dragons but his detailing is way beyond me right now! I think the other dragon face mask style is interesting - especially the version made with the pouncer...gotta try it too. But I personally like the whole body dragon. See my pic posted above with the ones on the boys arms? I liked the head but not sure about veination in the wings, any suggestions are welcome. TA!

Pixieface! Wow, your dragon mask rocks!!! It really looks complicated!! I cant imagine how long that will take me to do on a child's face. Any estimate on the time required? I am afraid to try!
May I use it as a sample to work from?

I like all the dragons here.
Here is something that inspired me, also from the Wolfe workshop Maaike has been, just another day, so we didn't met. Pity

This one is painted by one of the Wolfe brothers in their workshop, first a picture of the examples on the 'head' and then what you can do with it.

I've really enjoyed looking through this thread for inspiration. As I have always felt lacking in the dragon department. When I saw what Nancy posted from the Wolfies course well I just had to give it a go. here tis.....

Wow, very nice designs involving the swirls! Now I want to paint more! Thanks Jendzs for the nice remark about my dragon, I'm still trying out designs made for speed! These swirl designs definitely look fabulous and speedy!

Mandi, I'm glad I could inspire you with this picture. I like your spin of it.

Eva, I didn't paint it. I wish I could paint that way. One of the Wolfe brothers painted this great dragon face. And you know, the picture doesn't do it justice. It was so vivid and sparkling in real. Could not 'catch' that in the picture. They are real artists. And they kept saying: 'Just swirls, nothing more than the swirls you practiced'

An investment in Pashur's Dragon Book is well worth it.

Wow these dragon's are fabulous! So many differnt ways to approach it! I've been having trouble deciding if I want legs or no legs for my dragon. . .

I'm thinking a much shorter body next time with or without legs! I thought I would need to make it longer since it would have legs but I over shot a bit Smile

I just noticed I have it's head facing the wrong way! LOL This was the first time I'd done it one the right side, and I painted it just like I had on the left. . .didn't even thing about it while I was doing it, but I did think the flames were going the wrong way somehow! (how sweet is my hubby to let me paint him)[img][/img]
