This is the bust "Pogona" from Nautilus Miniatures sculpted by Martin Lavat.
A project by heart as we take care for a bearded dragon named Elli and this bust is amazingly matching her look.

It was a challenge to paint something based on a reference and more realistic. It leaves less choices while painting but is rewarding once the reference starts to manifest in the mini.

    Excellent, and I love the bottle cap for size comparison:-)

      Thanks Christoph - the cap was the closest item that could work as reference. Has potential to become a trademark (-;
