Crouching Dragon, Hidden Tiger. Finally uploaded, beaming with pride. Done as a free work for school (yes, it's overkill). The Dragon started out on the sketches in a really static pose but once you get sculpting, and see it in all three dimensions it's hard not to make it more dynamic, you kinda feel obliged... Materials include (but are not limited too): Fimoclay (hard& soft), Green stuff epoxy putty, Lychees (yes, the fruit), ultra-adhesive superglue, paper, laminating paper (don't ask), tesa paper tape, metal wire,... . Apart from being my first larger scale sculpture, it also is my first extensively planned work painted in oils. A thing i'm particularly proud of is that i managed to use clay with fruit, something i haven't seen done anywhere on the web in this way... take a good look at the scales, lychee :D. It actually is way more impressive in real life than on the pictures IMHO (pictures kill detail), becuase the paint job looks better, and the pose seems more natural in 3D. And to give you an idea of the dimensions of the sculpture: Its outstretched hind leg is 100 mm long, The hips are 94 mm high yet the shoulders are only 52 mm above the ground. If it were to stretch out completely it'd have a wingspan of 49 cm, and measure, nose to the tip of its tail, 41,5 cm. Collaged to show as much detail as possible.
