Title: Kaiser Dragon
Name: Jonathan Murphy
Country: USA
Software: Maya, Photoshop

The goal was to make a dragon that didn't fit any conventional standards. I was inspired when I played Breath of Fire 3, and saw this weird looking dragon. Once the dragon was complete the wings annoyed me. So one year later I decided to improve the image. The top wings act like jet engines. I even put in an air intake section up top.

the idea of creating a dragon that doest stand with tradional standarts is cool,

however, making something original or non-standart requieres that you still follow a few lines so that you can call your work ex: dragon... which I think you well when it comes to shapes, but when it comes to texturing, colors n stuff... I is not felt... it is hard to read the body because it looks like theres a camouflage. The dragon doesnt looks like he got an history... hes 'clean" ... but Im guessin that is because of the style you wanted to give to it, - Ive played that Breath of fire game and it is refleting that cartoon style- in that case.

keep working its looking good anyway

Thanks. Here's the wireframe and untextured version. I had to darken the scene, because he was blending in with his habitat. After a few renders I decided to keep him the focal point of the image. I even put bugs in the scene, of coarse in the final version they can't be seen.

Sagema, do you have any images of Kaiser dragon from the game ?

I really like Breath of Fire III.

The last time I spent trying to look for a Kaiser dragon image on Google (I still haven't found one) made we looked for weeks.

Good model.

It was hard to tell where the head was :)

Wasn't the dragon's wing kinda have a rainbow coloured wings or something?

The left arm just blends with the rest of the body, even without textures. Bad camera angle, i say.

Here's the image. I altered it a lot from the Capcom version.

So that's the one I saw.

Do you have the one in the sanctuary where Gar tried to kill Ryu and Ryu turned into a Kaiser dragon ?

...that the design is wonderful, and extravagant, but the render itself just needs some work. A different angle / pose, and perhaps a nice background to go with it? I enjoy seeing different types of dragons, thank you for sharing!

And the Breath of Fire games were excellent, although number 2 is my personal favorite!
