This is the finished hand-painted, hand-cast edition of my“Maleficent as Dragon” relief for Disneyland’s Wonderground Gallery! As with most of my pieces I learned a ton from this one as well :) I’ve become a better sculpture for quick molding this piece was only 2 separate molds (as opposed to Mickey’s 15!). The teeth were added later to the head after casting. First creating them in apoxie sculpt then covering them with epoxy glue. I wanted them to be super strong to survive getting shipped across the country. All my pieces need to be rugged enough to withstand this so it’s a big part of my process. Painting and color was a hug part of this piece as well – creating digital color comps first helped me to get the variations of purple and reflected light just right. I can’t wait to apply what I learned to my next piece!
