I made this bust during Spring Break my freshman year of college, while at home. I liked it enough to take it back to college with me: I still remember how miserable I was on the flight from Denver to Houston with thik thing wedged in a box next to my feet. I recall that this was inspired by the cover art for _The Black Gryphon_ -- I liked Skan's ears on the cover (still do today). This was while I was going through my dragon phase, though, so the ears manifested themselves attached to a dragon instead. He's made from paper mache pulp and airbrushed with blue and silver metalic acrylics. I actually still like this piece. Sure, I could do technically better work now, but I like the shape of the dragon's head and the effect of the blue and silver metalic paint on the rough surface.
