Wood Dragon, Chris Lomaka (3D)



Title: Wood Dragon
Name: Chris Lomaka
Country: United States
Software: Photoshop

Not actually inspired by LOTR ents; i just can't help it if it took me forever to actually finish this one... Chinese mythology has a dragon for nearly everything, so this is my interpretation of a wood dragon.

- It looks great!
- The leaves in the foreground are a little flat looking.
- Sort of a cross between realistic and painterly image.
- The bark looks a little "soft" to me.

I like it a lot, especially the lighting. As Ed said, the bark is too soft...

overall the colour is good. But one thing that i don't like is that there doesn't seem to have any depth.

Hi Chris!

I'm curious if you've done any changes to your dragon from when you first posted it back in February?

I happen to love dragons and liked the direction you took with your "wood dragon" so I downloaded the JPG of your model back then.
