This red dragon wall trophy sculpture by Alessandro Ragone of TheDragonHunterNYC enraptures with it's golden and deep crimson red colors and fierce expression captures mid-cry. You can watch Alessandro's entire creation process from start to finish in the time-lapse video below:

To add a layer or realistic life to this dragon Alessandro included these creamy orange cat style glass eyes. The delicate colors blend perfectly with the palate he selected for the entire sculpture.

Then below is another intense dragon paper mache sculpture, this one in black paired with these golden dragon glass eyes. The contrast is striking!

Another impressive artist who works with cloth and paper mache to create fantastic dragon trophy sculptures is Raymond Bennett of RaysDragonLair.

You can watch Ray sculpt one of his dragon from start to finish in the video below:

This incredible red, black and green dragon is made with a paper and cloth mache process that also includes air dry clay and teeth crafted from sculpty polymer clay.

As you can see, the finished result is nothing short of extraordinary...

Perfectly suited for this sculpture, Ray included these green and orange fantasy glass eyes for a brilliant touch of life.

Ray also chose to use these golden dragon glass eyes for some of his sculptures as well. This custom commissioned one shown below is crafted with polymer clay, a pair of the golden dragon glass eyes, and painted with acrylics.
