Talking With Dragons

This is the first of a collab series between Dan P, Oden and myself. This is number one of two large collabs. The images were drawn by Oden and blasted by Dan. i did the sculpting and was assisted by Dan as well as my apprentice Cope. The piece measures just under 25 inches. What a good time! Enjoy!
