I don't know what it is about Sea Serpents. I just love them lately. See my two other posts about them here, and here. They are so sinuous and serpentine. And their heads are fascinating to me, too. This time I wanted to make a sea serpent that looked more like a dragon than a horse. He still has a bit of an equine look to him, the way he arches his neck, but he is actually a water dragon, not a hippocampus.
This guy gave me a little trouble here and there, as befits a dragon. It was difficult to position his head just right so it pleased me. He kept tossing it about. His tail has a dragon-style point to it, arrow shaped. And he's nicely coiled about himself.
I went with an interference gold color mica powder, highlighted with a duo green-gold color. That means that the color changes a bit as he moves. He was listed in my Etsy shop, but has since sold, and is now happy in his new home.
