Well worth the journey ! seeing the dragon in all it's minty green glory ! the sense of scale (no pun intended) you get from the previous pictures don't do it justice, seeing it in person... wow !

As to the minty green... not my dodgy phone camera.. it actually is that colour !

Awe inspiring, bank breaking, frustration causing, bankrupting, breakdown inducing, enemy crushing, jealousy provoking, scaly goodness and it freshens your breath! Is there anything this dragon can't do?  :wink:

Holy crap!  :shock:  That looks awesome....just when you think you've got the shear scale of the thing in your head you see another picture and *BANG* it's hits you as to how huge it is  :jawdrop:

Just took some photos, then placed the dragon carefully to one side. Turned around in chair to face the computer. Leaned back in chair whilst reading emails. Heard snapping, crunching noise.

...Balls.

To clarify, the snapping crunching sound was not my balls. I almost wish it had been. I broke the wing tips off on either side, fixable but intensely annoying.
Fortunately the pics I took of the dragon immediately before I broke it came out OK (You can never tell, stupid cameras and their 1 inch screens)


That's the small pic, you can also have medium, large or massive. Clicky linkies according to your internet speed, i guess. the massive files are in the 4mb each region and are...well, massive.

Bit Blurry face on this one. Sorry


medium, large or massive

Next week, I may well start toying with a rider-friendly variant of some sort. Kev is going to do a rider too, which will be awebulous.

DO NOT HOLD YOUR BREATH WAITING FOR VARIANTS!!!

You all saw how long it took to get this far, let's not pretend there'll be three different versions in the next month or anything!

Indeed there does go more money little bro. Will chip in with some more money in next month.

As to dragon pictures - I just hope the time split between mine and Enazel's will be enough for him to pin mine - although he tells me he will make all the mistakes on mine so he doesn't on his......

No two ways about it. That is just flippin' awsome!

I am now actually quite scared at the prospect of actually recieving one of these bad boys (or indeed girls... how do you sex a dragon).

That looks awsome.   :boing:

( I will admit though, the ridges on the tail are a bit iffy looking.  Makes it look like it's slotted togeter from a load of bits.   :crazy:  I know it was done that way on purpose - or at least it looks like it - and it won't stop me getting one, but i'm just saying : it makes it look like a telescopic arial. )

At least the main body is done so you have something to build upon ........

I could see "bits" of him selling quite well for people to use in dioramas and conversions such as the wings, rock and head.

You don't have to be polite as long as you buy me dinner.......... and you are female !  :lol:

From my (very vague) memories of reptile lectures it's either to do with how long the tail is (the safer option) or whether you can extrude their hemipenes from the cloaca (double penis - the probably dragon enraging option).... Could be wrong though. Vermis?

Which is exactly why I didn't sculpt anything down there beyond a vague line.

:salute:

There's usually some sexual dimorphism in reptiles - bigger, bulkier male lizards, crocs and some turtles; bigger female snakes and other turtles; colours; spikes and dewlaps; femoral pores; concave plastrons etc. - but some types are more overt than others and if you need to be sure it's handy to have a gander at the tackle.  Problem is they're usually tucked away, as Beastlord says.  In lizards and snakes you can see the bulge behind the cloaca, or try to evert them; although another common method (with snakes, at least) is to use specially-manufactured probes to determine the length of the inverted internal 'pockets'.  You can buy sets of these in exotic pet circles, in accompanying containers or wallets like a set of wax carvers from Heresy.
It's a similar method for crocs, though with different results, and the 'probe' is a little more personal.  The external features of turtles are usually enough to go by.

I'd post links, but it's possible to go too far with the mental scarring.

In terms of the dragon, it's whatever Andy says it is. :)  And a 'vague line' is good enough for a reptilian creature.

Also: oooooh pics.
