Thanks! I do all of my sculpting in polymer clay. There are a whole bunch of different brands, but I prefer Sculpey :)
I’m always working on new projects, I think I may get started on some other dragon species this week! I post all my Work in Progress stuff on Facebook, so be sure to check out my work there for the most up-to-date photos ;)
Sorry about the late reply! Just saw this message for some reason. I’ve really just done a LOT of trial and error. I “play” with different brushes and effects until I find one that works. When I do something super photo realistic like the “Warrior” painting, I always use a photo reference and attempt to copy what I see. I start with broad, basic colours, and refine one layer at a time. I make the first few layers very soft, with fuzzy brushes, and use harder brushes as I go. I almost draw water the way I draw fur, which sounds strange, but it’s all about long, randomly positioned strokes, like fur. Just be sure to practice, practice, practice. I hope something I’ve said is helpful!
