Pop Tab Dragon -shinkonryuu- by OniMushaKid Pop Tab Dragon -shinkonryuu- by OniMushaKid
Banzaaaai!! Another little crazy stuff! I finally finished this dragon sculpture. It took me forever:phew: I used pop tabs all the way from the tip of nose to the tip of tail except for whisker. I wanted to count it but again it'll take me forever to count lol. Also, I'd like to give many thanks to *WhittyKitty for great support. And thanks to all my friends who collected the all tabs for me. I glued them together with ordinary epoxy or cold-weld compound type of epoxy. this guy's about 14 inches long and 8 inches tall. By the way i want this to be called 神魂龍 (shinkonryuu) which inhabits the spirit of a person, where they obtain the necessary energy to live. When a person dies they move to a new spirit.

This is the second pop tab creation. If you are interested to see the first one--->:sprint:[link]

Yatta!!
It's kinda late to say this now but I'd like to thank *iProxy for featuring this earlier. And now I have a DD. sooooo many people came here and see this. I'd also like to say thank you verrrrrry much to ~Ahawii and =ExiledChaos for suggesting it:bow: And thank you very much to ^Thebuild for featuring it! Thank you all for who came to see it. I hope I can show you more work very soon!!

From suggester "I find Pop Tab Dragon -shinkonryuu- by ~OniMushaKid to be absolutely beautiful, and it hurts my brain to try to think about the insane amount of patience and dedication the deviant must have had to create this gorgeous dragon out of soda-can tops. (Look, the eyes are sequins!)" ( Suggested by Ahawii and Featured by Thebuild )

Ok, I'm not even gona ask how long this took...but that is flat-out AMAZING!! Creating that out of soda-can tops takes AMAZING percision and patience. The head and mane are stunning, and I have no words for the body.

I bow before your creativity.

Brilliant how you use the potential in an otherwise mundane article. I love his eyes and attitude, also how you articulated his "mane" with pointed pieces. And his spine. I could keep going. XD

I recently have aspired to create sculptures out of 100% post-consumer products. That being said, and given the fact that I adore dragons to the point that I collect figurines of them, this BLOWS MY MIND. This must have taken you so long to do! Not only that, but considering that some of the tabs are cut to a point, it must have been dangerous, too!

Looking at this reminds me how far I have to go as a sculptor. I haven't even completed my first sculpture yet! But instead of discouraging me, it inspires me. I hope that someday I am capable of such amazing work!

It would be kinda cool if you could add in some embellishments like an actual gem for the eye but I still think it looks fantastic with out it.

<Not to be a copy cat but I have been saving the pop tabs for a while for other project and I might try my hand at it ^_^ >
