    excellent texturing. Excellent rig. Modelling technique is good. Only nock I have is the overall shape - the body just isn't quite shaped naturally, esp. in the front legs and wings.

    Its kind of difficult to model a dragon off of the real deal since... well... there isnt any...

    Great job dude. I plan on animating this, do some trials and insert this into a video with motion tracking and see how it turns out.

    Dragons aren't real, so there isn't really a right or wrong, just personal preference. :)

    Excellent Model!! I am interested in using him (Dragon with wings) for a cut scene in an indie RPG i am slowly creating. You will be credited once I get the animated scene posted. ;)

    Muy bueno. Pero de verdad que esta muy bien echo.

    Lo unico es que no consigo hacer que en GLSL materials (en el motor de juegos) se vea con las texturas y los resultados del renderizado.

    Hi, thanks for sharing this excellent model. I used it along with other models from blendswap for creating Andoird applications. One of them is a animated story for kids in three episodes - Johnny's Adventures. All authors are credited, of course, according to the requests of licenses published here.

    First episode can be seen here:

    Second and third will come soon.

    Oh wow, this would work great for an animation I have in mind for a game I play. I want to use this as a rotoscoping base. :D Awesome detail :)

    Fantastic model, however I just struggled for over an hour trying to get the rig to do something it just didn't seem to want to do. it seems there are a few missing IK Bones, even with every layer open.

    GREAT rig. Thank you. I made my own textures for these which are compatible with Cycles "Simple PBR shader" by jtheninja (basecolor, metalrough, normal). I can upload these if anybody wants.

    Only bad news is, there are BAD self-intersections going on in the thin membranes of wings if you wanna animate it. No biggie but it does render as black when using Normal maps and Cycles. So far, no luck in figuring out how to fix it.

    nvm about my original comment i found a dragon to use as a place holder for the time being i'm going to simply work out the kinks in my computer (need an upgraded graphics card and probably cpu) and make my own in blender.
