Glad to have you on board! We’re excited too! Hoping to get some fantastic renders!

do we just post 'em in this thread? if so, watch this space lol :slight_smile:

sorry it isn’t quite relevant to the theme, but I guess the “courage” thing is in the dragon taking on the mighty thunder-god lol.

Good luck to everyone else! may the best artist win. :stuck_out_tongue:

Hello folks!
So this is a retake on a project that I let half-way through about 1 - 2 months ago, I added some details, some shaders and changed completely the composition:
