    Doing this will avoid normal problems with subsurf and not mess up the normals when you need to recalculate them.
    did a test by making a very thin cube and subdived and suburfed it than added armatures to it.

    Change that default blue! Otherwise it seems as though you're making good progress. He does seem a little too flat though - I know that it's meant to be a "flat" position when you rig it, but for example i hardly see a ridge between the body and wing join. A similar section is the tail, which sticks out like a cone (as compared to smoothly tapering down), is it meant to be like that?

    And you said you never created any 3d objects before now? I don't believe you!

    After watching DreamWorks HTTYD I felt like trying learn to make 3d models I found blender and started working on making a Night Fury.

    New Tail & wings looking SO much better XD, that should give you better deformation when rigging ...
    (Btw, have you worked on the paws yet? )

    The new tail fin clearly shows why it's always good practice for all thin surfaces to have a front and back side.

    It's a major improvement indeed.
    Sweet Dragon dreams, lovely Dragon kisses, gorgeous Dragon hugs. How sweet would life be to romp with Dragons, teasing you with their fire and you being in their games, perhaps they can even turn you into one as well.

    The new topology for the tail & wings looks good , though I'd add some more loops between the start of the membrane to the "loose" part in the tail, to make the polys more square-like (also it would allow for better softbody simulation if you plan to use it that is)...
    & the eye is looking nice, though a view of the full head would give a better idea of how they work with the rest of model

    Wow, that's stupendous for a start! Either you're a superfast learner or you've been eating, sleeping and drinking Blender from the start. It took months for me to start doing something productive in Blender.
