Dragon by Lucky101212 Dragon by Lucky101212
Sorry for the bad photo.
This is my first attempt at dragon made from Fimo clay, and only my fourth attempt overall. I don't have any tools, so all moulding is done with my fingers, very fiddly! I'm quite happy with him ^_^

Edit: If you have any advice on how to improve, I'd greatly appreciate it! Pretty much making it up as I go along ^^;

That's really impressive for a 4th attempt!! You have some natural talent going on!

Here's my advice:
- Try Sculpey. It's a bit more forgiving when you make mistakes, it's way easier to texture, and it's generally easier to use.
- I can't tell what the scale of this is. It looks like the wings would have collapsed if this were any bigger. Try messing around with wire armatures and see what kind of really cool stuff you can come up with.
- Vary your colors a little more.

Hi, thanks for the advice! This dragon was the first one I made a few months ago and I think I've improved a lot since then :) (I've made a few more with sculpey already)

practice, practice, practice :D (or it that with an s?)

My recomendation is to use sculpey rather than fimo, I found fimo to be a bit elastic and bouncy for my tastes.

Thanks :) I'll have a look into it. I got Fimo because it was quite a cheap beginner kit, with ten different colours in 50g blocks. I don't find it too bad, but I'm up for trying new things if people think they're better!
