Western Dragon v3

Newer Older

Playing around with the proportions of my original western dragon, originally just to enlarge the wings, but I ended up changing the head and tail as well.

Here's version's 1 and 2 for quick comparison:

    Excellent! More refine than the first one. I don't know what it is specifically but the pose is better than the second one. I thought of a dinosaur with wings on the second one. Very crisp folding and slim. If you can make the neck more streamline like the tail, it would be perfect.

    Very nice design and fold!
    I like how the wings sprout form the dragon's shoulders rather than the dragon's body.
