@Arkadiusz.M: you haven't done anything wrong that I have seen, with the exception of where you posted it.  Show Off is for paintings; sculpts go here.

 

As for commerce links, yeah, you have to be fairly careful with marketing on here.  Obviously you cannot post any direct links, but we sculptors should also be extra careful not to directly reveal our clients in such in a manner that obviously points to marketing.  The recommendation I have always gone with is to leave such things discreetly in your signature line or in the wartermark of you photos (like you have).  Beyond that we don't talk about who we worked for.  If people really want more details, they can contact you via PM or by the email you list in your profile.

 

For everyone else, please don't pressure sculptors for such information in public here as we REALLY want to talk about our babies, but can't.  Send us a PM and save us MODs (mainly me) a bit of time.

Whew, now that I have the mod hat off, damn that is a fine dragon. You are an awesome sculptor.  I'm in awe of the details.  What medium did you use for your sculpting?

Thank you so much TaleSpinner i didn't notice you replied before sorry :-( 
I will definitely try do everything by the book :D 

As for sculpture i used 3d printing after sculpting in zbrush,  i have tried traditional sculpting but it takes so much to get a hand on it and get to lvl that i'm in zbrush that 3d printing seems like reasonable choice.

So I have to give you MAJOR kudos here.  I honestly couldn't tell that you sculpted that digitally.  So many of the digital sculptors take short cuts and the like and have sculpts that just don't "feel" right.  They look too perfect.  Real creatures are not perfect.  This sculpt feels real, it has depth and soul.  I would have never guessed it was a digital.  I think you are one of the rare few who really understand the digital medium and get how to use it.  

 

I take my hat off to you sir!

      In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon.  I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body.  I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with. 
      I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other.  It was not the most convenient method of painting.  He was also very prickly... very, very prickly! 
       
      because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game.  I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall.  I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone.
       
      Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns. 
      Hope everyone like him.  This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.

      Today's mini is a blast from the past, Reaper's casting of the Heritage Red Dragon.

      Because of his seemingly furry chest/stomach, he is called the hippie dragon.

      He is one of many miniature purchases from the old Lone Star Comics. I raided the store for weird miniatures. The had a lot of bagged Reaper minis for sale.

      I saw this ad in Fantasy Modeling #5 back around '80 or '81 and immediately sent off for the Dragontooth catalog, and promptly bought the dragon. I think it cost something like $20, if you factor in the shipping. I knew when the box containing him arrived, because I think the box must have weighed twenty pounds.
       
      He was about the size of my hand, five and a half inches from tabletop to wing tip, and weighed approximately fifty pounds. Solid lead. Eight parts; Two wings, torso, four legs, and the top of his head and upper jaw. Wings would NOT stay on with crazy glue, epoxy, solder, or Sovereign Glue.
       
      My players must have fought that dragon three or four times in the three years we existed as a gaming group before we all went off to college and scattered to the four winds. One of the boys named him Skippy. As in, "Dragon? Oh, man, Skippy's gonna hit the table!"
       
      There weren't a whole lot of dragons back then. Toy dragons may have existed, but we didn't have any clue where to find one. And metal dragons had begun to exist, but I lived in a little tiny Texas cow town in the middle of nowhere. For us, there was Skippy, and we loved him well.
       
      So naturally, he was among the things my parents tossed out when I left for college. I have never seen another Dragontooth dragon like him. He was seventy pounds of solid lead, and probably illegal to sell, these days, but I'd buy another one in a minute.
       
       This is my newest dragon. Arrived today. He's pretty, and I hear they have him at Wal Mart, now. He and his box of friends cost fifteen bucks.

      And back in 1980, I'd have flapped my arms and flown to the moon by sheer force of personality if I thought it would have got me a dragon like this.

      But then.... today... you can find dragons anywhere. I think Reaper makes one or two different dragons, don't they......?

      Who was YOUR first dragon?

      My Reaper habit started with a Friday night gaming session...
       
      "Tom felt a breeze wafting up from the chamber beyond. For some reason the air was hot and heavy, even though he was walking along a passage deep in an abandoned mine."
       
      "Ummmm. Sorry, but we have to stop here today." I did not have a dragon mini to use to harrass Tom. A salt shaker just does not have the same drama as slapping the correct monster mini down on the table. I also could not handle everyone laughing at my poor (ugly mishapen) solder dragon.
       
      Time to take a trip to the old Lone Star Comics and see if they had a Dragon that I could afford.
       
      As usual, walking into Lone Star was like entering Alladin's cave of treasures. Real Partha, Grenadier, Rafm, and more distinctively sparkled, beckoning, despite the cost. A Dragon was too far out of reach.
       
      Back along the wall, there was something new. There were affordable minis on the back wall!
       
      I was able to score a package of villagers, some weapons sprues, and a real Dragon mini.
       
      Tom was promptly roasted to a medium rare, and eaten by the freshly painted red Dragon the next friday.

      Don't laugh too hard, but this is the solder dragon in question. It is amazing what can be made with a soldering iron, a little flux, a bit of solder and a ton of patience. It did in a pinch, but was retired after the Reaper dragon made its appearance.

      Continuing to dig up my childhood minis... This crazy old dragon was done back in 1984, I basically dunked him in turquoise enamel.  While not sophisticated, the color was beautiful and it's one of my all time favorite sculpts so I left it intact and decided to try adding some details. Results below!
