I LOVE Dragons. And I know you do, too! We'll work together through the design and sculpting process so that you can create your own.
We'll talk all about how to approach mythical creature anatomy, explore designs, and create fine sculpt details!
I'll also go over keeping yourself organized and working clean as much as possible.
This goes from a Beginner approach, then Intermediate, and then some Advanced work to finish him off.
