I'm trying to make and cast some dragon scales. I'm making and casting dragon bits for a variety of dragon species as a sorta sideline business - weekend in the shed kind of thing rather than everyday in an industrial estate. I've mostly been looking at teeth cast in resin and have some promising bits and pieces on the go. But resin scales always felt wrong - too hard. But I've recently been given some semi-rigid neoprene and that might be just the ticket.
But I'm a biology nerd. Particularly when it comes to dragons. You all know that. It must work or at least have some semblence of verisimillitude, the teeth I've made all vary depending on funtion and prey type (yes I've been working out ecological niches for dragons
). But what about scales? What do you think I should be adding in or missing out scale-wise. What should they look like? I have some ideas myself but I'm looking for inspiration here, coz you guys are some of the most imaginative, clever and also picky and pedantic people I know
If you give me a thumbs up on something then I know it's good.
