Dragon Egg 'Focused Creativity' by KatherineReedKS Dragon Egg 'Focused Creativity' by KatherineReedKS
The little guy in this egg just can't decide what he wants to be when he grows up! With so many choices and decisions for a him to make this little whelp can't seem to stick to one idea! He knows he would like to study magic but that is still too broad of a subject to choose... looks like his egg is trying to portray his inner turmoil.

It looks like a harder design! Worth the effort though. :)

do you just take little slices and use something to merge them together? like a mini rolling pin?

How exactly do you do this? I understand how to make a single one of these colored shape designs, but how do you make son many of them , so smooth, and in the shape of an egg? This is so cool! You're skilled!

Thank you :) To make it egg shaped I put slices of canes on a cleaned out chicken egg and smooth them together. Then I sand it for what feels like forever :)

Actually this has become one of my favorite things to do! I used the same technique for the egg that has the dragon hatching out of it!

Its kinda hard to explain but if you watched me do it you'd see me cut up cylinders of different color clay, shove them in a tube, put a dye in the tube, apply pressure to the other side, watch the tube pretty much poop out a long square rope, cut up the rope, place my cut chunks in a 3x3 square, then put my new block in the refrigerator to cool and harden a bit, then take slices from my block and put them on my egg :)

Hee, well that does sound fun! Making the clay behave has to be some of the most annoying though, I had to use it once in a college art class and it was horrible for me. :lol:

I thought it seemed magical too :) I'm thinking I should start my own ideas on dragon races :) How cool would it be if every dragon got to choose what they would become? A fire dragon and ice dragon could have a little baby lightning dragon XD

I've made dragons before, I do like doing it but will probably stick to eggs for a bit :) I just love finding new designs for them! Plus I'd love to open up commissions but I'd like to have more kinds of patterns people can pick from :)

Thank you :D Quick question, a family member has pointed out that my sculptures (out of my head, not based on something) tend to come out very square'ish. They personally don't like it so I was wondering if you maybe thought they looked a bit square too, and if that is a good or bad thing in your opinion :)
Reply
:icondrakeo1903:
drakeo1903 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
unsure what they see. i do not see anything square about them. i am looking at the eggs, for this, if that is what you are talking about. i can check out other things you own/make too, but im not seeing square o-o

certainly depends on what you are wondering about for me to state whether its a good or bad thing though o:

lol, I should have probably pointed out that I meant the other stuff.... if I had square eggs it might defeat the point XD I was manly talking about these guys [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]

And what I mean by good or bad is do you personally like the style?

Some, not as much as I'd like :) but I'm still in the 'not well known' phase :) Selling art is very hard! People usually have to find me from DA then go to Etsy to see it because it is so hard to find me directly from Etsy :P

well, a lot of people like your stuff XD

but you are right on that, i try selling stuff and im not so good. especially when it comes to updating. my mother snatches my dragons XD

its hard to find people from etsy.. so i understand :(
luckily, I AM FOLLOWING YOU >: D

lol, make your mom pay for them :) Give a good family discount but at least that way they aren't free... and doing that for friends and family can be important, if they want your stuff for free but are not willing to pay money for it then it tells you something.
