Dragon Attempt

I have decided that my inability to model anything organic is a real downfall, so I am going to try my hand at a dragon model. I know that dragons are a little overdone, but it is a learning opertunity and so far it is pretty fun.
Here is a rough (boring) render and I think from here I am going to work on either a custom bump map or maybe a little sculpting first.

Any C&C that can help me improve on this is more than welcom.

Great start, note that as a Dragon, I’m attracted to Dragon topics.

If you download the latest SVN builds you can copy the Dragon mesh, make the copied mesh have sculpted scales, then bake the details onto the low-res mesh as a normal map:D

pretty cool, keep it up

by the look of it, you are not incapable…i however cannot do somthing like this to save my life.

Wow those were some quick replies.

Here is another rough render with a little sculpting (same wire). Thanks Blenderizer and iliketosayblah. Cybor Dragon at the risk of sounding like a complete idiot, what is an “SNV build”.

Thanks again.

woa! i took a closer look at this and i realised it has more detail that i first thought, so great job!

an SVN build is a development build of blender, you can get them at different sites like
http://www.graphicall.org
and
http://64.233.179.104/translate_c?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.zoo-logique.org%2F3D.Blender%2Findex.php3%3Fzoo%3Dcom&langpair=fr|en&hl=en&ie=UTF8

SVN builds unstable however, and the files you save with them may not open in the stable version of blender.

P.S. The dragon looks great so far!

Dragons rule. No mater how many times I have modeled dragons, they all rule. Great job so far.

I can’t imagine why anyone likes dragons…especially renders as their avatar. I mean, they are just so overdone.

Oh, and YOUR dragon, very good Buster.

Look its dragon poo see it steaming?

NICE!! My dragon sux XD
view earlier post in basic interface subject in support topic to see the picture XD

I bet you’ll find hundreds of otherkin Dragons who wouldn’t think Dragons are overdone. The Dragon pummels every other creature to the ground and I’m glad to have found I am one of them.

You notice Dragon topics attract Dragon lovers, but may attract real Dragons too;)

Awesome!

The only critique I can offer is: maybe change the curve and angle of the two back-facing horns. That’s the only part that stood out to me as questionable.

Keep it up!

That was very productive. Awesome dragon by the way, do you have any plans to animate it?

XD Dragons PWN all domestic animals XD

great model and sculpting…just the horns…mmmhhh…i don’t like them…

Thanks for all the responses. I see a few are questioning the horns, any ideas on an improvement. I didn’t get much of a chance to work on this during the weekend, but here is a render with some rough materials and background. I am still thinking of adding some drool.

thanks again

The inside needs a wet fleshy material, like you stick your hand in his mouth and you pull it out covered in Dragon saliva. Also, you need defined belly scales and better scales for the rest of the head, perhaps even some folds on the top of his muzzle.

Drool would be nice, I’d love that Dragon drooling and biting all over me.

no one liked my poo…

eeewwww, that sounds completely wrong!:eek:

I’d love that Dragon drooling and biting all over me.
