This is sort of a 'collaboration'. This male dragon sculpture was sculpted by artist Melody Pena
, and is a cast of her original sculpture. I only painted it!

The color pattern is one I made up myself.
This is an official
Windstone Editions piece. You can visit their site here: [link]FAQ STUFF:So wait, you work for Windstone Editions?
Yes, I work for Windstone! I paint special one-of-a-kind and very limited pieces for them and also help them in random other ways. I do not sculpt for them or anything, I just paint stuff sometimes and do odd jobs. Melody Pena is the creator of the sculptures themselves! She is brilliant!Where can I get one of these? How was it done?
So far this piece is one of a kind, though there is always the possibility that I will do more or one similar. Because of the incredibly labor intensive manner of hand painting this dragon, it is impractical to make a 'line' of these to sell in stores. He took a while to paint, and I used Golden brand acrylics and special dry mica powdered pigments for the metallic and iridescent effects. He is painted with normal acrylic paint brushes and has glass eyes, and real gemstones in his forehead.I want to paint one too!
Male dragons are a Windstone production line dragon, and as such they do not sell them blank. I only painted one because I work for Windstone. But they do sell blank "Paint Your Own" critters: [link]Can you paint one for me?
No, I am sorry! All of the special pieces that I paint for Windstone go right back to them for them to sell. I cannot paint one on commission for you. You can get a blank "Paint Your Own" and paint it yourself though, or have someone paint it for you! There are a ton of really talented artists out there that can do this. "Paint Your Own" Windstones are a separate line from their normal dragons but they are still very cool!
