I been drawing quite a bit of dragons that are more like wild animals,I wanted to take a shot at drawing one that was mire of a ‘person’ and have a personality yet still resembled the fire breathing monster we all know and love. Maybe this dragon was once a man and is now struggling with is new body, or perhaps is a domestic dragon that is kind to humans and is like a loyal pet to them. I wanted to try this with out resorting to anthropomorphism. Here is the fished drawing. I struggled with this one, changing various features, over and over. Im not quite sure if i like this drawing or not. Painted in Procreate
Couldn’t Sleep. Decided to work on the 3d model of Dragon Alec. The actual modeling portion of Alec is almost done. the model consist of 10 various morphs, making it my most complex model yet. Reworked the face of Alec. It just wasn’t draconian enough. I wanted his face to resemble a more western style dragon. His snout needed to be long and pointed. since I had limited geometry to move around, I pushed it out as far as possible. My only worry is it will make it difficult to make the dragon talk when I animate him. I decided against wings for his design, as it would make him t0o draconic. Like most funny animals, not only does he have to resemble a person but a animal as well, adding wings would lean the scales too much toward the animal side. feet are now dragon like with nails and digitigrade design. Added some fins to the head. I just need give the hands dragon like nails and fix a minor glitch in the ear. Then I can texture and paint the scales. Will probably jump to Cruz and work on him for a while beforehand.
