The Teensy Weensy Dragon...

So I got bored with the Flamin' Flyin' Motortrike (but Piet knows how hard I tried) so I found this really tiny pewter dragon hot-glued to a hunk of petrified wood. No one actually knows where it came from except it was Erin's, a gift from somebody sometime somewhere in a galax... IMG_20200504_14213...

And get some oily smoke in there too!!! Thanks, Piet. I did do a translucent overlay of the fire but it's not enough. Oil...

Well done and well illustrated! Much more polished that my little race car, but we could race them and see which is fastest!!

Flamin' Flyin' Motortrike
