Thank you all so much for the favorites, comments and questions you all posted the past week or so! The response was even better than when I've received a Daily Deviation :) I should have another dragon to show you all soon and will be posting a lot more work of different types too. The dragon will be turned into a kit within the next month or two and will be my least expensive piece yet so hopefully some of you will be able to adopt one into your home. He's going to be guarding my lovely wife :icontrollmaiden: at the Renaissance Festival we'll have a booth at in another week or so.
Thanks again for the encouragement you've shown me. It means a lot!

I really enjoy the darker side of faery lore and many of my creatures are a little on the "creepy" side. I strive to make these monsters look like they just crawled down the side of a tree or emerged from behind a clump of mushrooms. Very organic and natural.

I'm blessed to be working with Lara, :icontrollmaiden: on DA who comes up with some of the most amazing concept art and creatures and scenes for me to work on. Our work can be found here on DA as well as our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pages/Ravenda… or on our Etsy site: www.etsy.com/people/RavendarkC…

We are working very hard to become full time artists and would love to work with you on a custom piece or one of our existing resin kits. Please send me a message if you'd like more information :)

Thanks so much for looking!

Hi! Do you have a Tumblr? I saw one of your sculptures as I was browsing there and reposted it. :)
This was where I found it: underappreciateddragonart.tumb…

My wife Lara runs our tumblr account and I'm not sure she posted it or not yet. That's pretty cool it's getting some recognition though! Thanks for doing that :)

Thanks so much :) I rely heavily on :icontrollmaiden: for planning most of them out and mixing a lot of the colors up for me actually. I'm partially colorblind and would be lost without her! The Minotaur was actually painted to match a painting from Paul Bonner by an awesome sculptor and kit painter named Rick Cantu so I can't take credit for that one :)
