Modelling a Mouth

Hey. So I’ve been working on a Dragon and I wanted to make the interior of the mouth plus tongue so I can animate it later on. But I’m not exactly sure how to do it. Because the outside shape is done and there is already an opening of the mouth.

Could I perhaps, add in a cube and model the entire mouth out of it, and then place it and attach it where the Dragon’s mouth will be?

Generally, mouths are made by selecting the innermost loop on the mouth opening and extruding inward. Without seeing what your dragon head looks like, this may be simple or more difficult. The interior furnishings of the mouth (teeth, gums, tongue) are generally modeled separately and positioned in the mouth opening.
