Todays mini suggested by :iconnetikras01:; thanks! If you want to leave your own suggestion, just leave a comment in this journal.



A slightly different thing today guys, but still fit-able in the palm of your hand. I always enjoy working in padauk, and the dragon seemed fun to do today. This is actually a done-down version of a flying dragon piece I've wanted to do for months, simplified to fit my two hours (significantly the stand). The stand is done in stained maple and stands about four inches tall. Nothing really special to say about this one; it is what it looks like. The match standard seems to be inconsistent for different places so I'll be scaling on a ruler pro tem. Enjoi.

More and detailed pics in the usual spot.

This is probably one of the greatest things ever and I'm upset I missed my chance to snag it

Well like I said; it's the cutdown stramlined version of one I wanted to do anyway, so you might very well have another shot.

Thank you! And that was just the height of the stand...

Yeah, the dragon itself is about 5cm from nose to tailtip, and the wings are probably about that wide too.
