    Dragon dagger

    Thanks to all for these very encouraging compliments!! Natasha: You know I realy like much dragons too, they exist in all civilizations and are often very different!! There are many things to be made with them! Magnus : Yes, as I wanted him rather sensual, it was not needed scale but a smooth skin! And that changes a little ! Thanks for all again ......and happy new year !!

    Dragon dagger

    Thanks to you for your comments ! Nice that you like his express, cornel! I wanted him roguish and a little bit sensual, I am rather satisfied with it! Andrew: they are not marks of burning : it is the rest of the outside part of the teeth as you can see on the picture And it took me about 60, 70 hours
