Cutie Dragon Commish

The brief for this dragon commission specified that he had to be adorable; so I played down all of the dragon’s malevolent characteristics and ramped up the cute factor to 11. When I was sculpting him I was thinking about a book ‘The Flight of Dragons’ illustrated by fellow Midlands artist Wayne Anderson at the end of the 70’s. I didn’t take it off my bookshelf and revisit it until I finished sculpting, but I can detect a slight influence, especially in the huge, soulful eyes.
