Update 25th Oct 2012:
Have decided to post all future WIPs within another thread as I keep improving; shall link to it when able.
Original Post 21st Sept 2012:
Currently I’m doing a character development project to model it to 3D form while learning about 3D techniques. This is my character, the Water Dragon Guardian.
She is my first 3D character I've ever done and constructive feedback is appreciated! Still I'm at the stage where I've finished sculpting and modeling most parts so I don't plan to model/sculpt further however feedback in these areas are still appreciated to help me with later projects! I shall demonstrate my process so far...

There are several more but they're more embarrassing to be seen by human eyes.

It's very spaced out so there's room for detailed pattern designs.
There’s more to come as it turns out I got too much for one post!
