This is Oriental The Chinese Dragon made for the US Disaster Relief Custom project at the MLPfair this year (2007)
This is Oriental The Chinese Dragon
He has been lovingly hand sculpted with Apoxie Sculpt Scales all over his body.
His impressive green colouring was achieved by using sparkly green/blue flip paint, which change colour in different lights. I have given him golden whiskers and fury bits.
He has hand painted eyes in shades of green and they have been painted to look more relistic and life like, they have been varnished for protection.
He took me around 70 hours to make, each part of Sculpt had to be made in sections as I had to wait for parts to dry before working on to the next part. His head alone has over 300 tiny scales. His tail has thick wire and mesh inside and has been securely fitted to the pony, the tail was originaly meant to be in front of the face but I could not see the detail on the face so I had to move it behind the head, that set me back a day.
My inspiration to make him came from a Windstone Editions Young Oriental Dragon by the famous Melody Peña. I hope you all love him as much as I have loved making him.
