SCULPTURE: "Ostrich Dragon"

Here is my submission for the "Sculptober Challenge" (for the Shiflett Brothers Sculpting Forum on Facebook). We were asked to find a single photo of an animal that inspired us, and turn that animal into a dragon. My "Inspiration Photo" was one that I took of an ostrich on my way to Santa Barbara, CA, back in 2015 at a place called "Ostrich Land". I decided to make the palette of the dragon a lot more colorful than the ostrich. Below are images of the various stages of development. I used "Magic Sculpt" epoxy putty for this sculpture instead of my usual choice of "Sculpey" clay.
  And here is the final paint job on this creature. Enjoy!
