Default Dragon head.

Hello all,

This is my 3rd model ever made in maya^^

I made a simple drawing and from that drawing I made the model of a dinosaur/dragon.

I put the 2 pictures next to eachother so you can see the difference.

PS: I added the horn on its nose

& The model doesn't looks so nice from the side so i'll add one more picture
EDIT: added

For your third model ever, it looks pretty good, though I'd like to see a wireframe too, because I think it could be better.
I must say that I wonder how much you look at the image you drew, since there's not a lot to see on it :p

Overall verdict; not bad for a third model, keep it up

I will post a wireframe in a moment. I only used the picture for the base shape On that picture it's smoothed though so i will post both the "rough model" and the smoothed model. :attn:

you need more detail generally. The horn and other accent features seem to be stuck under the skin where generally on dragons they are projected through the skin. A wire would really be handy as it looks like there are a few geometry problems.

And you know this how???

Seriously though, model needs allot of work, and I'm going to wait until you post a wire before i begin to try and help.
It makes it easier to see any problem areas.

Looks good though, for a 3rd

I modeled a Dragon as my 2nd model.
