Absolutely breathtaking. I don’t know how you do it with watercolor!
All that effort really pays off. Amazing, phenomenal work.

:-) Chris Mills replies: "I’d really like to try acrylics but up to now I’ve not had the time to learn. I do use ink a lot which helps bring the colour out a fair bit."

I have to say, I found this page by accident, and yet, it is already one of my favourites. Dragons are one of my favourite mythological creatures and this page is a feast for the eyes. Excellent.

Hi Chris, I checked up your gallery on Devart... and found your wonderful - amazing - breathtaking
dragon sculpture...!!! You know, I too have just finished a dragon with clay! I really would like to know how did you make the scales!!!!!Did you put clay piece by piece or did you carve scales directly on the head??? Thank you a lot for your answer!

:-) Chris Mills replies: "lexie - he’s made of Super Sculpey and he was done the hard way by carving the scales once he was baked - DO NOT try this if you value you sanity! Broken scalpel blades, sliced fingers and hours and hours later he’s still not finished. Still, I’m very proud of him and will post shots once he is which won’t be too long now - got an exhibition in November so he’s got to be. Many thanks for the comment."

What a wonderful gallery you have here! Your art is beautiful- so realistic and yet so full of fantasy!

My ancestors were orginally from Scotland (and just about everywhere else in Great Britain). It’d be funny if we were distantly related.

You are so lucky to work in a castle, but I would assume that’s why all your art so unique. Not many people have such constant stimulus to the fantasy aspect of their brain. I figure there’s not a lot of help I can offer through constructive critisism and such, so I’ll just parrot everyone else by saying how wonderfully detail and realistic your artwork is.

Take care.

I have been here before, it was so long ago... You have uploaded a lot since then I think. All of the new work is amazing! you skill has only improved and that more than anything marks a true artist in my opinion. The ability to grow, to become better to acquire more skills. Excellent.

How do I say this without gushing? I really enjoy your art, it has a lot of finesse. The fact that you use watercolors is quite impressive.
