Dragon (Finished)
« on: February 25, 2012, 01:11:24 PM »
Well, I've finished the dragon now.

I'm happy with how it turned out.

I hope I've done the model justice.

Whole model


Close up


Side shot


Top down (check out that wing span!)


Close up of wing (there's 6 layers of carefully blended highlight there, I think it paid off)


Hope you all like it.

Thank you to those who have provided comments/advice along the way.

Fantastic. From this end of the coal face it's really nice to see a finished one at last  :smile:

Great stuff. I particularly like the muted, realistic, colour scheme and the subtle (as opposed to the often seen, extreme) highlighting. Sit back and be proud now!

That's brilliant. I've been looking forward to some painted Heresy dragon photos and this hasn't disappointed! You've done it justice. :notworthy:

What an odd feeling, seeing a fully painted one after all this time... :lol: :boing:

Can you get me a picture of the whole thing, similar to this:


So I can make a painted pic or two for the site?

Thank you everyone for your kind comments

Are these pics any good for you Andy?







I can email you the orginals if you want them.

If you do, or if you want any other angles let me know.
