Tyler sent me pics of the dragons put together and in action! After I painted the grey in Tyler took over doing finishing touches and putting them together on location for the party. They look so neat! Also, I have no idea why there’s Kenny in there. Tyler was mum about it. What happens at leather camp party stays at leather camp party, I guess?
'Audre summoned two blue eyes white dragons!'. Internet high-fives if you get that… Anyways, I've mostly been working like crazy to get these two giant dragons done in time for their party this weekend. I have severe sunburns. I didn't get any pics of them put together when all painted, unfortunately, but Chris (the guy who hired me to make these) promised he'd send me pics and videos of them all set up and shooting smoke and lasers later this week. Yes, lasers. I have made rave dragons.

Little bit of a giant dragon sculptures update. The disco ball eyes have finally arrived as well as the ‘pearls’, so I am finally sculpting out the base layer on the face in foil. Stupid paper mache is not cooperating with me in this heat :/
I’ve added prints of these two to my etsy shop. Big and small for Toothless, and an 8x8 for ‘Giger Eternal’.

Q:Hello! Question about your art technique- how do you get such nice clean white areas (eg the teeth on toothless)? Do you use masking fluid?
Actually no, I don’t use any masking fluid. I mainly am just really careful painting around said areas. I’ll use a small round brush that holds a decent amount of paint to edge everything while making sure to blend the outer edges into the larger areas. Mostly the trick is to make sure that the areas you want to stay white are totally dry when you paint the colors in around them, and to only work small areas at a time. Also, if you mess up and accidentally paint into the white, gouache is great to paint over things. I tend to stay away from pure white, though. I knock back pure white with a thin layer of the pumpkin tea ink I make.
Thank you for asking!
I thought I’d post my process work and the materials I used on the Stitch/Toothless painting. The characters were mostly painted with watercolors and the background and detail work was mostly done with gouache. I pulled out the three colors I used of the gouache. As for the watercolors, I used everything but white, black and the browns.
