ashiataka - Thank you, good luck to you too :slight_smile:

Ramitxon - Thx, glad you like the overall image :slight_smile: After all those years I still love Rodney images :love:

Argh I just read that they extended the deadline :eek: well… but I think I will not change anything… maybe I will add few small details which I wanted to add like little creatures, small stones and more smaller clocks in the nest. What do you think?


Nice final! Gratz! I see that they moved the deadline hehe. Which makes me thinking of doing some slight changes to my entry, or maybe not :slight_smile:



coolkonrad - thx, glad you like my final image :slight_smile: Yeah they moved the deadline, I spent 5 days & nights to close the final image and what… an extended deadline grrr. Im not sure I will have the time to change anything… maybe I`ll model and add few clocks… maybe…


I saw the image change a bit background and nest Good work Maciej that Dragon really got a Good face.


scala - thank you, glad you like the image :slight_smile: I`m thinking about changing the background to a typical fantasy one with a castle on a mount… because the image laks of depth… I will see if I have the time for this :curious:


Hi Maciej,

This is hilarious haha! Such a cute little dragon!:slight_smile: Congratulations! It’s really fun to watch, great work! The mood on it fit so well the behaviour!:thumbsup:


hehehehe :stuck_out_tongue: congratulations! :applause: love the dragon’s expression a lot! :love: great details too! :stuck_out_tongue: good luck with the judging my friend! :thumbsup:


Hey Maciej, really great work mate!! i love the expression of Spike, cool! The whole atmosphere of the image puts a really great “dragon´s land” touch. The texture for the Spike´s wings is amazing!! A wonderful and funny concept, great!! I like a lot. For sure Spike is a odd dragon, but really charming.:slight_smile:

Congratulations Maciej for this great art work!! and good luck mate!! … and now is time for a really well deserved cold beers with some tequila shots! :smiley: Cheers my friend!! :beer:


I have decided to work on the backgro8und in those last contest days. Need comments if this is better or not than the previous one. Thx.


AxelAlonso - thanks alot for the warm words :slight_smile:

nwiz25 - thank you :bounce:

Ferx - thank you for your kind words. Tequila? Well here we dring vodka caus` the weather is cold :deal:


A quick update, maybe it`s good to keep the old mountain on the background no?


Yes please :slight_smile: keep the old mountain, MUCH BETTER!!


There is something about the midground mountains that disturbs me. It is so far removed from the foreground object, and yet it is so close to us. In my opinion the middle ground is too close, it doesn’t seem to fit the scene at all. Try pushing it back some more and try to get back some of that feel before you added the mid mountains. I certainly see how much difference it makes adding a mid mountain, but right now it’s too much in our face and seems more like an after thought cut and paste. Just make it integrate a lot more. You have something great here, just a little more! :thumbsup:


Hiun - well I thought it looks empty but now it`s too much… difficult to create something which will work with this scene. Maybe keepeing the old mountain will be the best choice :shrug:


I like the old better adds better space and shape to the composition! Maybe :rolleyes: I miss some crystals in the back, to wrap it from a different approach! Only a suggestion! Looks great already!:slight_smile:


Yes the “old” mountains have more of that Rodney Matthews look, which is great that you captured that look in 3D. A lot of Matthews’ dragons tend to have long thin faces, not that I know all if his work, but you appear to be going for a more humorous expression via a fuller face. Best of luck


Hello my friend, I have to agree with the rest in that the old mountains where much better. :smiley: Dont get the pre-judging jitters and start changing to many things. What you had before was good and worked well! :thumbsup:


haha your image is great! I don´t know why but it reminded me to that game of Super Nintendo, donkey kong country, lol

Good luck to you!!


AxelAlonso - thx, this helps, maybe I`ll put a secondrock with crystals in pre-background and leave the old mountains :curious:

Korendo - thx, yes I don`t want copying Rodney, just inspiring from his style.

Artisan-Hawks - thanks my friend, youre right, Ill keep the old mountains.

gG - thx, no idea why it reminds you donkey kong :smiley:
