I typically do pieces for friends and family and many, many moons ago I promised a buddy a dragon. Like 36 moons ago to be precise. Driven by guilt and with time on my hands over the holidays I was able to complete this piece. Originally, I had no story in mind for this fellow, he was just meant to be a generic dragon. But when the time came to colour him I found myself with a conundrum. Green, Red, Blue, etc. were too cliched and not teriblly unique. Orange, Purple, and colours like that were just to weird. So, in the end I went a mixture of Blue and Silver, making Mattias here the bastard half-breed offspring of a good and evil dragon. The piece is about 6" high and is basswood painted with dollar store craft acrylics. For those with particularily sharp eyes, those are indeed plain old round toothpicks making up the crest.
