Golden Chinese Dragon 2 by Richi89 Golden Chinese Dragon 2 by Richi89
these photos were taken w/o flash. I rekon it looks alot cooler=D but its harder to see the details..

Original here [link]

~Golden Chinese Dragon~

This is a Chinese dragon based off my initial sketch[link]

It's made of gold card cut and hot glued together=) Down the inside of the body is an aluminium wire helping to keep its shape. THeres also electrical wiring inside so that the LED eyes and ball can light up:D

This took me quite a while to finish. About 20 hours spread over now since mid year haha. I just kept getting stuck on the limbs which were probably the most difficult to make and attach.

The base is carved from a fat branch to look like the peak of a mountain=P

comments and critique appreciated:)

At first, I couldn't believe that there are real LEDs for the eyes and I thought it would be a digital effect but after I read your comment... I was so amazed (and relieved that it was not only an effect :D ) !!! How much work it must be to create and finish such a sculpture.
