Congrats!

Pretty cool stuff, although it took a long time to download.

Think the first model would be more convincing if there was SSS on the eye. Feels like a solid eye, rather then somthing soft/squishy.

I see you've removed the texturing on the 2nd model, although it still looks good I think it could use sharper detailing/another detail pass.

Are you planning to texture the Draconian?

What's up with the black line down the dragon's head (right?) Does that meant to be there?

Good stuff!

Thank you guys for your coments.

Trevor- sorry for the download time I'l put up a smaller version tonigh and youtube ofcourse.

I decided to render the second model as a sculpt rather than a game model and my textures wouldnt have caried over to the high rez as it had completely different UVs.

And yes I do plan to texture the Draco someday. But thats a long ways off.

Bobo- thank you very much sir you found me prety quickly

ftaswin- the black line is a comping error. I noticed it only after I took the still out of my footage and by then it was to late to rerender.

Thanks again guys.

yo, hows it going man,

Great to see it up here, awesome stuff, i really like the feel of these models.

i do think it may need some detailing in general. Like the armor on the dragon, u should put in the armor design u were gonna do. and just a little more of definitian on the face of the 2nd model.

hows the russian dude going

Andrew! Grats on the reel completion, nice to see it (again).

I can't really make additional feedback that differs from what others have already posted, so I'll just say well done and it was a pleasure working with you the last year :)

Awesome reel! Love the texturing job on the oracle -- it's really gross! :)

Now I wait to see your bust of Aleksei Serebryakov. Almost done?

Good luck to you, Andrew!
