Talking With Dragons( round two]

Talking With Dragons( round two]

Posted by Merc on 8/15/2009
 Featured by Phatt Ass Glass
This is the second installment of big collabs between Dan, Oden and myself. Very similar to the one that we made previously, although we ran out of time causing me to have to do the blasting. Poor Dan got a taste of Texas heat in the summer on this giant!!! Simply huge, 25 inches tall and around 9 inches wide. Lots of hours. Images done by Oden and with all the stands which hold my pieces, big ups to Mateo from Teo's Custom Stands. Thankx for checking us out!
