Meet Brandt, dragon #50 in my year-long series of polymer clay dragons. I can hardly believe there are only two left to complete this challenge!
Brandt’s name means “proud,” which seems appropriate as he is inspired by the beauty of peacocks.

Earlier this week I shared this in progress photo. You can see that I made a clay cane based on the designs and colors in a real peacock feather.
The original plan was to cover his body with the cane, but that seemed too busy. I much prefer the blue to green gradient with just touches of the peacock eye shapes.
If you’d like to see my other dragon creations so far, I’ve made a Thursday’s Dragon Pinterest board just for them.
His tail really gives the impression of a peacock’s tail, without making him look like a peacock.
I love the little smirk on his face, a proud fellow indeed!
