My Little Pony-dragons: Queen Chrysalis by HowManyDragons My Little Pony-dragons: Queen Chrysalis by HowManyDragons
Whee, I've been wanting to show this one off for a long time! I loooove Chrysalis's character design, and I'd been wanting to make a dragon version of her for quite some time. She was super time-consuming - putting the holes in her arms/legs took forever, as did mixing the clay for her gradient-toned saddle (which, I just realized you can't even see in these pictures... :< ). Her wings were a pain in the butt to figure out too - I had a lot of trouble getting their shape right, plus the translucent clay kept tearing on me. Le sigh.

Still, hooray, I did it! My favorite part? Those wickedly spiked horns. I'm so happy with how they turned out! :la:

Queen Chrysalis has been sold.

Those details must've been hell really, really time consuming. But that time spent was worth it! :)

Haha, I wouldn't call it hell, since I had fun making her, but it definitely took a long time! I'm kind of sad I didn't get to keep her.

wow SWEEEET! :D
you did so good! again!

so what kind of clay did you use for the wings? is it Sculpey?
Reply
:iconhowmanydragons:
HowManyDragons Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
Premo again - it's made by the same makers of Sculpey, but it's higher quality and much less brittle. The wings are translucent clay, tinted green.

wow I need to look into this! do you still have to bake the clay?
Reply
:iconhowmanydragons:
HowManyDragons Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
Yup, it behaves just like colored clay - just happens to be translucent! :3

awesome!!!! thanks for the info! i'll have to find some way to use some! like for Luna's mane and tail. :)

HowManyDragons Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
No problem. I ended up using blue-tinted translucent for my Luna's mane and tail - I think it was the right idea, but my execution could have been better.

How do you do the gradient?

Also, this is AWESOME!!! I wish I could of bought her :,<
Reply
:iconhowmanydragons:
HowManyDragons Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
I use a pasta machine and a lot of patience. If you're curious, you can look up 'Skinner blends' - it's a technique that gives you fantastically smooth gradients in clay. :]

Well, I do have a second set of wings and some leftover gradiated clay, so I am planning to do a v2 sometime soon. I was planning to take her to Otakon, though.... unless you'd like to buy her outright?

Thank you, I'll take a look at that (I wanted to know cause it could help me quite a bit so again thank you :hug:)

Nah take her to Otakon first and then we'll talk about me getting her ;)
I've got to talk to my boyfriend about using his paypal to do the transaction and how that would all work (I need time cause I'm a procrastinator XD)
