|Final sculpted parts and pieces|
My husband collects dragons, I make him at least one a year. Several weeks before Christmas I sat down and drew out a dragon pattern. My heart was not it it nor was I in the mood. There was no more time to waist. I must admit the pattern was not thought out very well. I usually spend several weeks thinking it through. After cutting, sewing, messing around with the results it was obvious the parts and pieces were better suited for a sea horse than a dragon. I chucked all the parts in my abandon body parts box. (I can tell you about that box at another time).
|Pined together and ready for assemblage|
I took some time and thought about the style and type of dragon I wanted to make, I then sat down with more resolve and purpose. Taking a breath thinking each body part through I went back to the drawing table. Not only did I draw out body parts, I drew out more parts than I needed just incase I wanted to change the design. When in the middle of sculpting I don't like to stop and make more pieces. The pieces I don't use always go into the "Abandon Body Part" box. =t.
I like to sculpt details giving texture, It comes to life and gives it depth. Each pieces is wired for strength, including the claws. As the individual parts were sculpted I started to feel my creative juices flowing. I just could not wait to get it done. I am always excited when I making a new sculpture and this feeling was a welcoming feeling.
I am no longer Dragan my attitude around the Dragon So if you are dragging around with you creative slump, keep on trying, I just about gave up but here I am, at the completion on this project I am renewed and ready to dive into my sketch book and see which sketches I can make come to life. By the way my husband loves his dragon. - Cyndy
