I like the idea. Im little skeptical that you can make a dragon not look "fantasy", but I shall look forward to the results. Nice drawing of a wing, it looks fleshy, where as the head concept looks robotic..

Pretty neat, so far.

I'd probably make sure it's at its lowest resolution and do an auto-map. Then take those and adjust/sew/cut as needed. That's just how I do it though. When you increase the resolution, the UV map should still stick.
