Dragon glass by MatesLaurentiu Dragon glass by MatesLaurentiu
I was inspired by Eveqi's glass engravings enough to allow the thought of trying it myself. And since I love dragons so much, a dragon was my first try. Enjoy!

Here you can visit and take a look at Eveqi's work if you're curious: [link]

I wonder,where you haven't talent at all ;) ?

I wouldn't call this a talent but rather a skill. If you know how to draw and paint, experimenting at glass engraving with modern tool doesn't require talent. But maybe if I would do this the way people did it before diamond tipped drills and dremels....

Its not a pen really, its a dremel tool like this [link] with a flexicord, like this [link] and the engraving were done with diamond tip bits, just like these: [link]

Absolutely perfect work :clap: I admire your shading and the round shape of scales (circles are hell in engraving) :aww:
Have you tried to put it into sun rays? It must throw a wonderful shadow :P

Its all in the wrist. The slower you try to make them the more wiggly they get. But if instead you just do them with a sharp movement - works just fine. :)

Has this dragon a name? :P Something like Glassiorus :D

Dragons have long and proud names. This one is Zaxilophiryoxinorionalix but its more easily known as Zax the Wise. He is old, very, very old and doesn't like to be disturbed but when it is intruded upon he tends to lose himself in telling stories of ancient times. It is fabled that he sat with an elf wizard in a conversation that took ten years.

:D Oh, what a beautiful name, ear-catching story.. I can imagine you can hear him quietly talking, when you drink something stronger overly ;)
So here it is, where you take your inspiration from, elf wizard? :XD:

Oh, they are performing enough to convert the mixture of beauty, fantasy and sex-appeal into real creation.. there must be milliards of them, I'm pretty sure :D
And thank you for the reference to me.. I'm very flattered, but too bashful to accept such compliment :)

I was browsing youtube one day and you know how that tends to shift you from subject to subject, much like a conversation. I found a video of a woman engraving a lion head on a crystal glass. And since I had a dremmel and some diamond tips around the house, I thought of giving it a try. Thats pretty much how you start it. :D
