Commission Dragon Head work in progress by The-GoblinQueen
Commission Dragon Head work in progress
In between sculpting all the Happy Dragons & Birthstone Dragons I'm working on a total of 5 custom sculptures (I've lost my mind lol) So at this point I'm going to be busy for awhile ^_^ 

This is one of the commission/custom orders Scale work is going to be fun on this one, oh & the horns will be huge ^_^ More pictures coming soon


The-GoblinQueen has started a donation pool!
2,614 / 3,000
Well DA no longer has the 3-month membership for points or at least I don't see it. I'll I see is the year for 2,396 points. Guess they changed it :( I only have 109 points so a long way to go LOL

I'm still collect points & can do the point commissions listed below,or the points commissions above along with features & llamas.

Anyone that donates even 1 point will get a feature or I'll feature an artist you suggest. Plus I'll give you a llama ^_^ :llama:

Please check out my points commissions below.
I can do a few super cheap points commissions for sketches like these~ Dragon Sketch no. 3 by The-GoblinQueen Dragon Sketch no. 2 by The-GoblinQueen Dragon Sketch no. 1 by The-GoblinQueen
Only 75 points & you'll be mailed the original sketch not just an e-mailed copy. Sketch will be about 9"X12" or smaller, no background.

Point Commission Info: See Commissions widget above
For 800 points I can do a custom ACEO (stands for Art Cards Editions & Originals) 2.5" X 3.5" any media
3 Dragon ACEOs by The-GoblinQueen Dragon ACEOs week 9 set 1 by The-GoblinQueen
That would include shipping worldwide
1,000 points get a custom 4" X 6" painting
Earth Dragon Watercolor by The-GoblinQueen
2,000 Points get a custom 9" X 12" Painting
Geisha and Her Dragon by The-GoblinQueen

Oh yeah & it says I have over 2,000 points but I really have 109 points now.

If everyone just donated 1 point I could keep my membership.

Each month I'll be sure to feature artist!

If you donate a point I'll do something nice like a feature or something :) oh and I'll give you a llama too!

You must be logged in to donate.

Nina Bolen
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
My name is Nina Bolen, & I live in East TX with my husband & our many animals. When I'm not working with animals I create art.

I've become best know for my whimsical fantasy artwork of dragons & other mythical creatures.

I grew up watching the Dark Crystal & Labyrinth, and Jim Henson's The Story Teller & Fraggle Rock where my favorite shows. So it's natural that my artwork would be inspired by Brian Froud, Wendy Froud & Jim Henson. I have loved fantasy artwork my whole life, and it revolves around everything I do.

I have also won awards for my one-of-a-kind artwork. My artwork can be seen in publications such as, Teddy Bears & Friends Magazine, Teddy Bear Review, Bird Talk, Dollums Magazine, just to name a few.

I studied fine art/sculpting/illustration at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but I still considers myself largely a self-taught artist.

Today I sell mostly online. Items like, needle felted plush, artist bears, custom plush, OOAK (one-of-a-kind) sculptures, ATC/ACEOs and fantasy art.
I am also available for free-lance illustrations, book covers, licensing & custom orders.

Thank you for the watch! I'm so glad I found you on DA, facebook is really annoying and only shows me like 2 pages even though I've liked heaps of them. Bleh. This way I can be sure to see your new work :D

You're very welcome! Yeah FaceBook is becoming a pain :( it was great for artist at one time but now you have to pay for people to see stuff 
Frogata Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I know, I've pretty much only got people seeing stuff on my page because of the Dragon Obsessed giveaway. If I wasn't a part of that I'd be back to like 5 people seeing a post :/
