This black dragon has amassed a mighty hoard and isn't about to share. In fact, he's become so obsessed with his stash that he sleeps on top of it, and the gold and jewels are starting to embed themselves between his scales. He definitely needs someone to watch over him and keep his greed in check!
Heh, putting together the gold coins probably look me longer than it took to craft the dragon. The gold clay doesn't like to stick to things, which is super annoying! I think the end result was worth it, though.
Hmm, several hours, at least. The dragon wasn't all that complicated, but it probably took me a couple of hours to create all the coins and then fit them all together. The problem is that the gold clay that I use isn't very sticky, so I had coins falling off constantly while I was working on this.
They don't usually fall over because they tend to be seated, but I've had raised arms sag. I either try to prop them up with wadded lumps of tin foil, or I add a wire support in the arm so that it stays in place.
