My dragon pony had a safe flight to her new home with Teasle. ^^



Teasle said in her form that she liked Gothic and regal dragons, so I wanted make her a custom with a kind of gothic spirit to it. Without using too much black. Happy I designed the Celtic knot myself, and tried to make it resemble the style of Gothic church architecture and such. Smile I also wanted to sculpt the dragon so that its wings are positioned like they could be a part of the pony herself.

This is my first sculpted dragon (well, except for one Fimo dragon that I haven't finished yet and possibly never will, lol) and I'm very happy with him. I had to do the first wing twice, though, before I got it thin enough. The dragon was made using nothing but Apoxie and some iron wire to support the wings. I call him Caurus, Latin for 'north-west wind'. He's painted in a mixture of dark brown, black and golden acrylic paint so he looks like very, very dark bronze.

Finally, Amaranthia was rehaired with thermal hair from DH (Mystic Brown to Auburn), with stripes of Black Magick & Sunlight nylon. The thermal hair has a funny texture and it was difficult to use because it's much more brittle than nylon, but once I learned to be careful it turned out fine. I had countless problems with painting this pony, too, so the result is far from perfect, but I managed to finish her and I'm happy that Teasle likes her. ^-^ Hope you guys do, too!

I love, love, love Caurus. I wanna kiss his face, he's so awesome. You did a great job creating a Gothic inspired knot.
