Shadow Dragon by Ascynd Shadow Dragon by Ascynd
My attempt at a 3D shadow dragon. It is based on the D&D dragon of the same name... although I couldn't quite get the 'translucent scales on a dark body' look, I think I did well with the smoky, translucent look on the fins and wings.

Please excuse the lack of background, this is a character test and after some experimenting I quickly found that putting it in an environment such as the creature would naturally be found in makes it virtually impossible to see... as it should be, I suppose. For this test I wanted the whole creature to be visible. I may do a more natural image of it later, but expect to see only parts of the creature while most of it is hidden in darkness.

I used Yelloweyes' morphs and some of his props (cheek horns, frills, horns) as a basis and then morphed his head a bit further, the snaggle teeth make it look a bit more sinister. It's all one Poser 7 render, the only postwork is a bit of added shading and highlighting.

You may use him as stock if you wish as long as you credit me in some way.

Resources used:

Most things are slightly to heavily modified.

I'm actually writing a story for NaNoWriMo (gag me) that has to do with creatures made out of shadows that in their corporeal forms resembled a type of dragon just like this. How cool!
