Dragon Hatchling Sculpture - Spiny Desert Drake

Dragon Hatchling Sculpture - Spiny Desert Drake by Sarrah Wilkinson - A sculpture of a baby spiny desert drake hatching from a scarlet and gold egg on a bed of sand and stone, beside a little cactus.

This sculpted drake hatchling was crafted to resemble the exclusive I did for Phoenix Comicon 2012. A true desert dragon, he has golden-bronze colored scales, sharp spines, and egg yolk resembling molten lava rock. His egg sits on a bed of sand beside a small sculpted cactus. The cactus is also made from polymer clay, and the "spikes" are tiny bits of faux fur carefully glued in place by hand.

This is the first dragon I crafted using a glass cabochon for the eye. His pupils follow you!
