Ysera, the Dreamer by HowManyDragons Ysera, the Dreamer by HowManyDragons
The person who commissioned me to make Alexstrasza also requested an Ysera figurine, so I'm actually 2 for 5 on the dragon aspect front. Ysera is the leader of the green dragonflight and is also known as the Dreamer, so I made her lying down and sleeping, similar to how she appears in WoW's Emerald Dragonshrine. She's is an oversized dragon and features closed eyes, gem-studded bracers, leg armor, a spiked tail, and a swirled green and gold d20 die. This is the first time I have ever tried giving one of my dragons closed eyes, and I really like the result! Like, enough to try making some more sleeping dragons in the future. :) I also really like the colors in this one - I've been kind of hoarding my remaining green pearl clay because it's a discontinued color, but it was nice to bust it out for this project. One of my favorite clay colors.

Ysera was crafted on commission and has been sold.
Ysera Blizzard Entertainment.

She was $90+shipping, due to being rather large and complex. If you're interested, I could make one for you.

I can't wait to see if you do a Nozdormu. If I had enough money I'd make sure of it lol

Ahhh yeah, he's not likely to be made unless someone pays me to make him. ;)
Bet he'd look cool though! Gold and blue is a lovely combination.

Thanks very much! I wanted to stay true to Ysera while still making her in my style. :)
I have to say Alexstrasza's my favorite, but I do like Ysera's armor.

Is there a dungeon with this character where you heal it back to health while your allies protect you?

Pinging you to check teni-volka's response to this comment thread - it's Valithria in Icecrown Citadel.

Hmm, nothing's coming to mind. I think there are various green dragons in some of the dungeons, but I don't think Ysera's in any... I just can't remember. >_<

I love it. The closed eye really looks nice, and I have the exact same die that you used here.

HowManyDragons Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014
Hehe, this is actually the same die I used in that other green d20 dragon I submitted recently. I ended up buying another die to go with that dragon because the commissioner wanted this one for herself.
