Commission: Ringbearer by HowManyDragons Commission: Ringbearer by HowManyDragons
This was a very interesting commission - the client wanted a dragon that could hold a ring. She also requested web-patterned wings and an aquamarine crystal in the center of his bow tie. I ended up pulling out the paints to do the webbing on the wings, and unsurprisingly, I am still bad at painting non-wobbly lines... *hangs head* But otherwise, I like this little guy. I thought it would be cute to have his tail turned up instead of just sitting on the ground - it's one of those things that I like but tend to forget that I can do. xD

That's my wedding band in the photo, by the way. :)

Feeling a little blue...

Hey there, you're welcome to share my work on your Tumblr - that's why I have the share buttons enabled on my deviations! Thanks for letting me know, and I really appreciate that you link back to the original posts on dA. :heart:

You have NO idea how insulting I sound to people who don't understand how the share button works. I- It's amusing and disappointing how people don't realize what their exposing themselves too. I have to ask because of most of the people who don't understand that and. Yea. Well. THANK YOU for actually realizing the actions I'm taking here <3 You're the best lol

Unfortunately, dA doesn't make it terribly clear what the sharing options are and what you're opting in to. But if people want to put their work out on the web, I don't think they should be surprised or insulted if it gets shared elsewhere. Once you post something online, it's no longer private. xD

This lil guy is cute. The webbing on the wings doesn't look to bad though, and all the colors go together quite nicely. Also, I love you wedding band, the design look intricate. Is the carving custom?
Reply
:iconhowmanydragons:
HowManyDragons Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2014
It's actually not a carving, but mokume-gane; a Japanese metalworking technique. The pattern comes about from folding different types of metal together, then using an acid wash to emphasize where the metals touch. The idea is to mimic the look of wood grain in metal. If you'd like to see some really gorgeous rings, check out Krikawa. That's where I got my ring from and I think their mokume rings are simply the best out there. :)

Oh wow! I've never heard of that technique before. I will definitely check out Krikawa's work.
