Default Dragon:What do you think?

Hi guys, I just came across some free time and decided to use it to model something organic, which I rarely do. This humble little dragon is what I have so far. Let me know what you guys think and how to improve it.

Thanks!

Very good start indeed!

I like it, I would watch the front legs though ... Looks like it has somehow one bone only, instead of three and an elbow. Maybe look into a crocs reference, or perhaps if youre aiming for a higher standing creature, then go for a normal dog bone structure.

Gotta love those wings!

Looks good, Ive never been any good at modelling organic things (well Ive never been very good at modelling anything particularly organic things). However I agree with adldesigner it needs an extra joint in the front legs.

Thanks guys, I'll take note of your suggestions. Croc references you say? Alright then! Off to Google I go! I'll probably just rebuild the whole thing. Maybe a slimmer dragon. I'll post it as soon as I get something done. Thanks again!
