Summer colors.. and space!

Some of the most recent pieces I have painted were inspired by my newly found love of succulent plants, and in a color scheme I call “Summer”. While I waited for a commission piece to be delivered I painted my first “Sushi Cat” in a galaxy scheme that is at least partly inspired by some memes of the past.

“Reef” Oriental Dragon

He’s finally done! This is “Reef”, a PYO Oriental Dragon! I have spent more time on this piece than I think any other piece I’ve ever done, and I hope it shows! This took me approximately 53 hours to complete. I’ve learned a lot (like, 4 colors PER SCALE is way too much to blend efficiently!) but I am really happy with the way he turned out.

Two New Windstones

I’ve painted two new Paint Your Own Windstones since I last made a post! Here they are, “Deepwater Dun” the Hippocampus, and “Dusky Sunset” the Rock Dragon – the first of this type I’ve ever painted.

Candy Stripe PYO Keeper Dragon

This week I worked on this piece – a Paint-Your-Own Keeper dragon in a very sweet and gaudy color scheme I call “Candy Stripe”. This piece has a glossy topcoat, metallic periwinkle eyes, and her stripes have been topped with interference green paint so they have a lovely shift.

I’m considering taking more pictures of the process of painting these statues and including tips that I’ve learned along the way. I thought about doing it while painting this one but the time was never quite right! Next time.
