Galaxy Dragon Skull SOLD 1 by Sovriin Galaxy Dragon Skull SOLD 1 by Sovriin
You may have seen my lovely Sunset Dragon skull, Well, now I have a new treat for you! This is a skull from the mystical and rarely seen Galaxy Dragon. Galaxy Dragons are small, slender creatures, with jet black scales. Their skulls sparkle with all the beauty of the cosmos, and are an exquisite delight.

Here is my latest skull painting, using a replica Muntjac deer skull as the base. I am SO happy with this one. After doing my Galaxy Panda skull, there were a few things I didn't like about it, so I decided to try again on a Muntjac. A few artists suggested things like toothbrushes so get a proper star effect, and it worked a charm! Using the toothbrushes and my lovely pearlescent paints, I was able to get some beautiful transitional colouring, with several shades of pinks, blues and purples all swirling together, with little white stars gleaming through. Photos really don't do it justice.
So, I would like to thank artists :iconmadewithlove8:and :iconbeezee-art: for their advice on my last skull :)

The only thing I'm missing are bigger horns. But I like Dragons with huge horns.

's looking pretty awesome, lifelike :D

Thank you! You may find it interesting to know that these are actually casts of a real animal skull! (which is why I don't have much say on the horn size, unfortunately! =P ) They are casts from a deer called a Muntjac deer :D

Much as I'm late replying, I DO find this interesting indeed. I actually thought you used a real skull, but I didn't imagine it was a cast of one.

I had actually been hoping to use real skulls initially, but surprisingly I have a bit of a phobia of them, and cant touch them! Using cast skulls seemed a happy middle ground, and actually made the whole process a lot cheaper and ethical as well :D

lately i have been getting slightly tired of all the "galaxy" themed applications everywhere (clothes, shoes, all kinds of items) but i must say this looks really awesome :heart: love the colors you have used and how they come in gradient, a very nice effect.

(i would definitely not mind having one of these skulls, hehe!)

This is fantastic! I'm glad the stars worked out well for you. It does have that great random effect of different star sizes and patterns. Very nice!
