How to feed your Dragon by ancestorsrelic How to feed your Dragon by ancestorsrelic
Modern women of today do not believe in dragons anymore...
But fortunately dragons do still believe in modern women of today :evillaugh:


--------------------------------------------

Nothing special, only a fast job done in two nights to test some texture-techniques. And yes, the title is a spoof of... make an educated guess... My dragons are not cute and not toothless! ;-)

Suddenly... I am reminded of the movie, "Q The Winged Serpent".

Yeah... that's a damn good Creature Feature! It isn't aired very often here in germany and hard to get on DVD. Oddly enough the german title was "American Monster"... don't ask me, why.
But more than this work, this one [link] was inspired by Q.

Saucool, beconders der Halt in den Klauen (die Dame wird wirklich gut festgehalten, wir wollen ja nicht, dass sie abstürzt) und die Schwanzspitzen gefallen mir!

Thanks! Gerade an dem Klauengriff habe ich wohl 2-3 Stunden "rumgeposert" bis es wirklich passte... Schliesslich will unser schuppiger Freund ihr ja nicht wehtun... jedenfalls solange nicht, bis das Essen frisch auf dem Tisch angekommen ist :evillaugh:

I just thought about when he's already marriaged, coming home and Miss Dragon is awaiting him... She: "What's that? One skinny damsel? Nothing more?? I have to feed 4 hungry hatchlings and you bring only one damsel back? Thank you for nothing, you useless reptile!"
He: "They are not easy to catch anymore and simply to pick up from the sacrifying-poles like in the good old mediaeval times...!"

Already marriaged? D'Oh!
No problem, I can imagine that alternative timeline... =D
Now, that dialog is truly funny! XD

Nothing like giant dragons with massive talons in the classic action of stealing away a damsel. Ah, good times.

A quickie? It's pretty good for your status on it. I like it.

Yes, don't forget the good old classic dragon who eating his damsels raw, alive and without ketchup! Sacrifying maidens to dragons is unfortunately an almost forgotten tradition today ;-)

Holy crap, I didn't know you could make dragons this well.

How much/ what are you willing to charge for you to do another one of those?

It's the "MilDragon 2" from DAZ3D. It's an older model from 2005 and i am just started to pimp up it a little bit, especially the textures and bumpmaps. It's not finished yet, it need some more overwork, the morphs need some tuning too, maybe even the mesh need some overwork in Hexagon 2. During my work on it i said to myself "How to tune your Dragon" and found the title for it ;-)
Guess, i will do some further dragon-works from time to time too.

Who said anything about needing improvement? What's with you Perfectionists? Always wanting to make something thats already perfect into something even better! By the time you make something absolutely perfect, you will have no time in creating other amazing artworks!
And you better show more dragon artwork! In fact, once you get bored with the Sucuriju adventure (Which I doubt will be anytime soon...), start a series with some dragons. (Only a suggestion, mind you...)

I will never stop to try to made my works better and better. This work is finished now, but in the next work i will try to remove, avoid or correct the details, that i am not totally satisfied with in this work... And in the next work i will surely encounter new problems and new flaws...
I guess, every artist is trying to become better and better, otherwise he can stop creating artworks or would staying at the same level forever. I know, i would never reach perfection, but always trying to come closer and closer to it.
Looking back on my 2008-works i often say now: The lighting is mediocre, the posing is looking too stiff, the textures looking unnatural, the camera-angle is choosen wrong, etc. And in a few years i will look back on my 2010-works and i hope, that i will say the same about them again then, because that shows me, that i have enhanced my skills a little bit in the meantime.
But i withstand the urge to modify older works. They are finished... Always the next work will be the better one.
