A bit of Inspiration
I was managing my fish tanks and I was mesmerized by how shiny my guppies’ scales are. One in particular I call Birchy seems to have a permitting purple glow coming off of his body witch I find vary fascinating. I was thinking about how mimic the effect for the dragon. (he doesn’t look like this… but it’s an example of the shine effect I am talking about)

To give a better idea of what I was having to peace together for the head, here is it's UV map. The rest of the dragon isn't going to be as frustrating to figure out what goes where.

Was going to do yard work today, but I was feeling a bit sick so I stayed inside and worked on my dragon most of the day. The way I mapped this thing made the eyes difficult… but at least it looks nice now. Also, now that I figured out where the eyes are on the UV Mapping, I went back and made a nice gradation like from my sketch.

It may not look like I did much this time, but I actually cleaned up the horns and lined up the yellow part to the edge of the mouth. I think next update I will work on putting edges where the horns meet the skin to make it look a bit better. Also, I will probly work on the eyes and maybe fix the mouth a little bit. I feel like I am about 70% finished with blocking in everything on the head. I am glad that it looks a bit cleaner now.

This is where I am presently with the dragon. I am trying to block out his texture and it’s taking longer than I would like. His face needs work and I need to figure out what exactly I want to do with the webbed part of his wings and tails. My texture mapping is sloppy… so it’s slowing me down a bit, but I will push through it.

I am going to get a RAM boost soon, so hopefully I will beadle to work on this with a little more memory at my disposal. Corel and Maya like to crash each other.

This is the model that I have been working on sense May 2012. I feel like I model in Maya as well as I can sketch now. I need to focus on texturing this beast and then try my hand at adding a mane that reacts to physics.

This is a part of a sketch I made of the Creature for my project.
