dragon mech (that's right, i'm baaaaack!)


(stukkm) #1

thought you could escape me? bwahahaa… well anyway, remember that i realized i’m a stinking moron for spending all this time trying to make the dragon like smaug and having all that extra scene junk (not to mention lighting that i felt was junk). so here’s my redone dragon mech, i hope i’ll have enough time to finish…

i still think there needs to be at least some kinda scene but i don’t want to get carried away like last time. any suggestions on that?

also, what do you guys think of the wings? i had to make due with multiple textured lamps for a glow like look to them since the plugin won’t work. i tried a bunch of halos but they looked absolutely terrible

I think it looks alot better this way. The other was too dark. Awsome wings too i like it alot. 8)

thanks alot for the input idgas, i agree the lighting sucked incredibly on the other one. in fact, the blend file for this is called “dragonmech_lightingthathopefullydoesntsuck.blend”
:stuck_out_tongue:
anyways, what can i make in terms of a scene? i don’t really want to make much but i know i can’t just have the dragon against a blue sky.

it would be cool if you can put it in front of a castle or only in front of a Donjon tower…

castle… hmm… that might be pushing it abit but i’ll think about it. and Donjon tower? forgive my ignorance (oh… i just remembered i have to write 1.5 pages on ignorance for english due on friday…), but what is this?

sorry it might be a wrong translation from french to english…it is the biggest tower in a castle…in medieval epoch the royal family were living there…but after some time those tower were use to put prisonner in and torture them…I hope you understand!

Looks way better than your old one
Maybe thats just because the lighting is better. :wink:
The wings are cool but where are the controls for them? :o :o


(stukkm) #8

controls? uh… i’ll be right back…

edit:

oh! x-warrior, do you mean to say dungeon?


(locash) #9

No, x-warrior really meant donjon. This link will take you to a history of english castles. On the second page is a mention of “donjon”. It is the french word for what the english would call the “great tower” of a keep. Ironically, it is also the origin of the english word dungeon.

I never got to see the first but I like it…great work!!

Maybe add some more mechanics to the spine, make em look like they all can be retracted.

This is turning out to be one mighty fine dragon! Just a quick thing…

The arms look a little too small with the general proportions, maybe u could just scale them up a bit?

Overall, absolutely kewl dragon.
