WIP Remixing 2.5 project Durian Sintel Splashscreen

That was quite a project, i was quite nostalgic and stressed doing it since it will be my first ever challenge, i hope you will enjoy the breakdown as much as i enjoyed doing it.

The inspiration was as the title suggest project Duran, or Blender Open movie project Sintel, this movie make me fall in love with blender and since it has been my favorite tool to make both personal and professional work.

i try to imagine what will a stylized Sintel look like, after she make it out the dragon Cave and the little dragon following her, i modelise the face than groom hair particles before changing my mind and go full stylized and make curves hair with object bevel, i then stitch the body with a stylized base mesh i found on artstation, take the adult dragon on blender cloud or similar repository, cut the body and keep the head, try to find a good composition and lighting(i was inspired by Julien Kaspar sculpt January rim lights ) then try to upload it on Sketchfab to see if it run smoothly, unfortunatly, i get an error each time.

i will upload all image later, i also have the recording of the face modeling process.

Correct; Sketchfab does not support shader or geometry nodes.
