    Blood and Fire

    Hi all!

    I made this here dragon... because why not?! As usual I used a lot of software, including Zbrush and SubstancePainter, but Blender was used for most of it, and putting the final render together for a Cycles render. Hope you like it!

    Crazy material work there, parts of it look like it's made out of candy (what with the strong translucent and glossy effects) O.o

    That's okay though if the point was to give the creature as much as a visual punch as possible (and it does do well in that area).
    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.

    Great stuff. Great render.
    I can only give suggestions, personal opinions and constructive critique, but it is your decision what you do with it.

    Is it just me or the image will kinda perfectly fit the next 'Welcome' image when the new patch comes out.

    Stunning render.

    My question would be did you create a whole dragon or your aim was to focus on the head?
