Line Art or Model: Dragon`s strange behaviour



Now all is better :) I have only to find a way to put some "soul" in those crystals... maybe procedural noise in transparency? Any ideas?

It`s hard to simulate that "matter depth" without boosting too much rendertimes and geometry :( I need to devlopp a trick to have a nice mapping on the obect which will simulate this aspect. The most importent is to have it enough varing to not see it`s the same crystal duplicted.

From your friend on the battlefield

hey, bro! Crystal texture is great! I wouldnt change that. THe rocks though still seem unreal to me. Perhaps make it a combination of rocks and dirt. and then a greenish shadow from the crystals. Keep it up its looking good!

Artisan-Hawks - Hey buddy, I know, my fault, naming that rocks was wrong, it is a sort of melted lava

Ok let`s take that as a start of the nest rock... I wanted to see how this works with a back light.

Hey Maciej, that crystals looks great!! nice work man! , perhaps some variations on green ( one on darker green, others lighter...) only a comment Again great work!! and looking forward for more updates!

Ferx - thanks I agree that it must be some color variations, I will certainly put a color noise map on all the crystals this will help...

Ok because everybody says the rock doesn`t look like rock I made some changes. I think this look interesting now...
Also I added the nest which I have to improve by placing some branches here and there.
And I changed a little the point of view. I`m not sure if the crystals are not too big but let`s see when the dragon will be ready.

C&C welcomed.

Line Art or Model: Dragon`s strange behaviour / color study



A colour study which looks less digital and much more painting like.

I started some more detailed dragon. My knowledge of anatomy is same as my chinese (equal to zero) so any help is warmly welcome.
