There is no pattern for this sculpture.  I thought about what I wanted to make and then I made it.  It's about 14" tall.

    Dragon + ice cream = you're a genius.

    this is incredible!~ fabulous work! I should be so talented! = )

    I saw this and just.. wow. Wow wow wow!! Thank you for the inspiration! No, I can't make this guy (yet).. but you reminded me to let my mind and hook wander :D

    He is LOVELY!!! I crochet as well, and I do it the same way you do: I get a vision and see what comes up as I go along. But I make clothes and hats. I never thought about doing "sculptural" crochet, though I have wanted to make a dragon (or fairy) for quite some time. Did you use a special wire or just standard wire? And what gauge? Thanks so much for sharing!!!!

    You said you would make anything if asked...
    I WANT A FAIRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    :P :D :B

    By the Gods that is awesome!! My BFF loves dragons but I dont think I have the patients to do something like this. But it is cool non the less. What made you pair it with an ice cream though? I would have never thought dragon and ice cream. lol Great job!

    Would love some more close ups and different angles to attempt to figure out how you made this guy. It's hard to tell with just the two pictures. Thanks.

    Looks great but I thought you needed to have instructions to be an instructable? This would be a challenge for even an experienced craftsperson.

    I expected this might come up.  Per the guidelines, slideshow submissions were acceptable for the contest.  My thinking here is that people who want to one day make something like this just need to learn how to crochet.  The whole piece is made from simple crochet stitches and easy shaping techniques.  All things you can learn how to do via other instructables.  Also, this is my artwork.  I am an artist and crochet is my medium.  I present this here as inspiration, to show what can be done with just a little yarn and a few simple skills.  If a person wants to crochet this dragon, I don't mind.  I'm just not going to lead them there step by step.

    I don't blame you! Besides I'm sure the pattern would be so long and complicated not many people would be able to make it. No one would be able to make it so smooth and perfect. I've seen alot of the crochet animals (agumari I don't know how to spell it) but non that looks so smooth and even! Absolutely Gorgeous!
