Blood and Fire! by RicoCilliers Blood and Fire! by RicoCilliers
Here's a dragon I made.. because its fun and I love dragons I guess. Also, I had to do some R&D work for a client, (the crystals) soo there's that too.. 

Sculpted in Zbrush, texturing in Substance Painter and Photoshop, modeling, lighting, shading, rendering in Blender/Cycles
hope you like it :)

great pose and sculpting - can you change the posing as well ? I think if you use hexagon, you could animate it :nod:

thanks! sorry for the late reply :p I can indeed change the posing a bit... This is done in blender, so technically I could even animate it (but I'm too lazy)

I'll check out hexagon, thanks ^_^

It's so cute! (was that the right reaction? XD).  Love the dof'd bits in the corners (are they part of it?), gives a nice sense of dynamic/action/motion/something.  Nice work :D

haha your reaction is fine :D Yeah the parts in the corners are meant to be part of the body, I basically ripped parts from the neck and rotated/scaled them to frame the head, just to get that sense of movement. I do want to make the actual body at some point.

Looks super-realistic! I thought this was a super-close up of an actual model at first.

I love the amount of energy in this from the sparks, but the textures and materials (specifically the crystals) look really impressive.  I can't tell if the crystals are glowing, or if it's transparency/refraction causing the depth to work, but I love how that material looks!

:iconricocilliers:
RicoCilliers Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Thanks! The crystals have a very subtle amount of glow coming from them, but it's mostly refraction/translucency that's generating the lighter areas. I did boost the glow a bit in Photoshop though :)

I've always been a huge fan of anything with dragons. I used to play Skyrim a lot, and I'm looking at this other game called Dauntless, which apparently is coming out later this year.. but yeah, MH seems like a good one to check out. I tend to get so much inspiration from a well executed dragon game xD
