DragonCon Trophies

The last few weeks I’ve been working on some commission pieces for Guild Launch to present at DragonCon this year.

 

They’re resin with a little bronze and silver powder and paint. Its been pretty full on getting them finished for the convention this weekend, but I did take a brake for the Dragons show (unrelated) n Cardiff last weekend, pics at the end.

For more info on these ‘Dragonslayer’ awards check out the Guild Launch blog.

Here are a few work in progress pics from the sculpting, moulding and casting process.

 

The head, horns and sword were sculpted using Super Sculpey and broke into separate pieces to make casting easier.

 

Dragon parts before assembly.

And finished dragon with and without their removable swords.

 

And last but very not least, some of the original 2D concept work by Sophie Powell!

 

 

So, as I mentioned the Dragons vinyl toy show is on in Cardiff for another week at the Sho Gallery and here are a few pics from the opening night. My dragon and loads of others are now also available at their online shop, so pop over and have a look!

 

Dragons Show

So nearly a month after finishing and sending off my dragon the show is here!! Well, its tomorrow at 6pm at the Sho gallery in Cardiff to be precise. And I still haven’t put up any pictures of the completed Dragon! I blame the Olympics, or something. Anyway…

Its called Kindling. I say it, because people keep arguing over if its a boy or a girl. I say decide for yourself. And ‘because its purple’ isn’t a good enough reason in either direction.

All of the Dragons in the exhibition will be for sale at the Sho gallery but also online Here from 6pm on the 18th of August.

And I seriously recommend checking out the work in progress blog for the show. The whole event is in aid of Diabetes UK and organised by the fantastic Andy Kelly (@zombiekel)

Its gonna be an amazing evening, and I hear there are Welsh cakes and beer to be had, as well as goody bags for 25 lucky people.

See you there!
