Knight and Dragon Book Sculpture by wetcanvas Knight and Dragon Book Sculpture by wetcanvas
A brave knight takes on a ferocious winged dragon in this sculpture. Armed with his shield and sword the knight stands ready to attack. The dragon stands with claws raised, ready to swipe. The book used is "The War of Souls", part of the Dragonlance series. Both figures are wired through the book for stability. The sculpture is finished with a gloss UV shield to protect against sun and moisture.

Well, my son is three and obsessed with pop-up books. There aren't really any adult pop-up books out there. I didn't want to make pop-ups, more of a visual explanation of the book. I've always been a very visual person (obviously) and I love to read, so I figured the two should go together. There are other people out there who do them, a lot much better than I am. Su Blackwell's books are AMAZING. thank you for all the comments. I really appreciate it :)

Reading is awesome! :D I think it is a really neat idea, having the creatures/objects in the books being formed out of their pages.

If you hadn't already guessed, I randomly found one of your nautical works when surfing through DA last night. I thought OMIGOSHTHISISSOCOOL and immediately decided to look through your gallery. It looks like you have learned a lot during your time working with books! :D I think you should keep doing ships every so often. They look so graceful. (I love sailing and tall ships, could you tell? :XD:)

Oh, yes. I look back on some of the older ones (I don't know if I should say that because I've only been doing them since March) and think, "No, that's totally wrong. I should have done it like this..." and they take much less time now. I've definitely learned some tricks. I actually just remade the original Pirate Ship, though I didn't post it, it turned out well but it didn't have that "raw" feeling that the other did. We live close enough to the Inner Harbor in Baltimore to go down every now and then, especially for Privateer Day, but honestly I'm terrified of water lol. I'm not sure you could get me on a boat!
