ZOOM IN FOR BETTER DETAILS~ BECAUSE DEVIANT ART RESIZING SUCKS BALLS

Final big push I tried here for seeing how I could render and colour my models. Pretty happy with how this turned out but I need to mess with the materials some more. :s Sadly deviant art hates this image size. xD Ah well. I swear I got one more image to post and just how I did this guy and i'll be onto raffles! :) Yay!

Character belongs to :icondelusionalpuffball: and is Urbolious. 

Created in 3Dsmax, zbrush, marmoset tb3.

This is a very beautiful, well-detailed sculpture of an ornate dragon. The position and the colors you gave Urbolious gives the image a very menacing and ominous atmosphere, which I think captures the beast very well. I also very much enjoy your attention to detail, with all of the armored scales on its skin and what appear to be scars on its underside.
I think the background is very fitting, too, especially where the dark red is contrasting the blue of its body, making the beast pop out.

Wonderful work on this piece!

Thank you kindly Shadow! :) I give props to the person who created urbolious for the amount of damn crazy scales and details the hide had! I would say he was also a pain to work for as the extra hours had to be put in to just get that look down properly. But well worth the wait! I'm happy you caught on to the colder atmosphere. I was attempting to go for the cold blooded nature and feel of the dragon being ice and what not. Definitely added battle scares like what you see there. I mean what's a dragon that doesn't have a few fights here and there. 

Thank you so much though! I love others that have a sense of critical analysis on images so I really appreciate your feed back you give. It's always welcome. :)

You are very much welcome! :D
I noticed that the artist who designed Urbolious also creates other very well-detailed beasts. All of the time and dedication you put into making the dragon even more realistic made it worth the effort, it seems, and your attention to adding this realistic detail and your process inspires me to work my own ZBrush sculptures with more detail. I think you certainly pinpointed its freezing nature, not just with the color but with the steam from his nose, where ice becomes water vapor as soon as it hits warmer air.

You are very welcome! I am always glad to know that you appreciate these elaborate analyses, just as I am always glad to give them, and the plus is that I believe it helps artists much more than the simple one-word comments because it shows that the commenter put effort into analyzing the artwork.

Oof, I remember having some 3 hour gaps and those were hella painful. :( Also it sucks you can't share those with anyone! I would share them with you ;_; It's always hard being in another country with no connections.

Dancing Pumkin head 4 IT'S THE ENDLESS NIGHTS OF LIVING WITH MY CENTIPEDE BROTHERS AND SISTERS THAT KEEP ME THRIVING.. :D ... 

XD I'm sorry the tut isn't totally beginner friendly. I find they do take a long time to produce so i'm more than glad if people keep these for later on in the future. :) Anything to help you guys out since I know you're curious of making 3d models in the future! It does get mega busy doing 3D art so I sorta get why not many respond to those that ask.. :S

YO! If you ever want some big high res images of them I won't mind resizing them for you girl! :) I get it though.. Prints are hella expensive ;_;

Happy it makes your day though! <3
