Every once in a while I can’t resist a photo op, even if there isn’t much to say about it!
One of my Christmas gifts from Mooglegem was this Heart of the Aspects pet. I may have overfed him a little in my raid to get him to grow. Thanks, Mooglegem!
A few months ago, Devee surprised me with my very own Heart of the Aspects! I named her Sunshine, after my first dog. Sunshine the Dog was a beautiful and rambunctious rottweiler! We were BFFs until he ran away and never came home [true story]. Sunshine the Dragon is also kind of unruly, so I like to take her on long trips in the open air.
We were questing in Uldum when she told me her deepest desire. She loved being gold and shiny, but at the same time, she wished she could identify with one of the dragonflights – the brilliant Reds, the intelligent blues, the thoughtful greens…
Anyway, I came up with the greatest idea! I had some extra dye in my bags, so we painted her scales. The red dye I had on hand was acrylic, so she found it kind uncomfortable to move when it dried. I couldn’t get a good photo because she kept holding her wings awkwardly. The green was our favorite. It was an oil-based paint so it took a while to dry, but she said it was quite comfortable. The color was just gorgeous! The final skin we tried out was this blue Sharpie I found in the bottom of my purse. The problem with color Sharpie is when you try to do one even coat, you inevitably go over one part a second time, and that part gets darker! Then, you do another coat just to even it out again and again. In the photo, you can tell that some spots are darker, but I just gave up.
Now you guys know how to paint your dragon! What color will you try?
