Dragon Model for Friend
Hey, all. I'm working on a dragon model that my friend wants me to make him. It will give me an insight into some organic modeling, and I need the practice. He wants me to make it after the World of Warcraft boss called Onyxia. I personally hate the game, but I have nothing better to do so, I will be posting the WIPs here. Cheers, m8tes!

I like the way it's beginning to look. I'm not sure about his horns though. Don't know why... I think because it has sort of an elbow near the head.
Great job though.

A wireframe of the base mesh as well as an update. I realized that by what size I want for the body, I would have to enlarge the wings, becauze there is no way those puny wings could pick up that entire dragon.
Cheers,
,Matt

He is split uo because I didnt take the time to stich him together . When I do get the final model he will NOT be split up.

Cheers,

SAAAAAAAAWEEEET! I've always had a soft spot for dragons (comes from years of D&D I guess)

Cheers,
