Shiny Things by Orin Drake | Shiny Things Gallery | Dragons | Plush | Kaishun

Kaishun's got an incredibly optimistic view on life in general.  After all, he's one of the dragons who helps to usher in spring every year.  Admittedly the duty isn't always easy (Mother Nature just loves to readjust her snow schedule without telling anyone), but seeing the leaves and flowers begin to bud is rewarding.

The only clear ideas I had when I started were "white and pink".  Kaishun definitely took on a life of his own after that.  His antlers and, er, "artistic spines" are wire-wrapped and decorated with lovely, lightly frosted silver-lined pink glass beads, with a few tiny delica bead accents.  His belly and the bottoms of his feet are of course brilliantly sparkly pink, and his eyes are rose quartz.

He's also a big Barnaby Brooks Jr. fan.  Just putting that out there.

("Kaishun" means "return of spring" or "rejuvenation".  Suiting, I think.)
