Theatre update and some slightly better pictures

So last night I finised the dragon off, I was a bit dissappointed once i'd assembled him...Something was wrong...I realised there was too much green and blue going on.

So I quickly revised the colouring on his tail and other wingy bits this monring...that's not finished yet but I couldn't resist trying him out in position - nothing is permanently installed yet, it's all being held together with blu tac and bits of string until it is it's kinda wobbly looking. But it gives me an idea about what's needed.

The first thing is another layer of larger sea at the back behind him. The next thing is that...somehow I want to be able to change the scene of the girl and the dragon to a bear catching a fish....It's just something which has been bothering me .... I want 2 scenes...and i'm running out of time...I haven't even started the young lady - I feel like I haven't washed or eaten properly or cleaned my house in weeks...It's all gone skanky again.

Anyway, I plan to work till my fingers start shaking tonight and see what kind of progress I can make.

Thanks for the very kind words! Paolo, I am not sure what will happen with it. I made it because I was asked to do an example of work for a book and I didn't really have anything else theatre-wise. And it gave me something to aim for! Once it's been photographed etc for the book (assuming it goes ahead) then it's likely i'll make some cut outs of the various parts for people to make themselves and then possibly sell it...Although I have no idea if someone would pay the amount of hours I have put into it....if you know what I mean

I think you'll be surprised if you put it up for sale at a price that covers your time.

You can always drop prices but you can't easily raise them, especially if you list it for too little money and someone snaps it up.

People like owning originals and one-offs. And your work is so very very special - people know that they can't get anything like it anywhere else.

Please tell us about the book when it's out.

By the way, I'd love to see your work gathered in an exhibition!
