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]

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.
