I wanted a four-legged dragon, so here is the Prismatic Dragon!
I wanted the legs to be like crystals growing out. It looks like how I was wanting, and I thought of naming him “Crystal Dragon”. That seemed kind of generic. The wings also look like light rays, so I went with Prismatic Dragon.
When I decided to add toes, the shift made the wings much larger (relatively). For the bombastic increase, I decided to call this one Effulgent Dragon.
Besides the toes and giant wings, he has a tail like a spear. I also didn’t thin the neck, so he has a more proud countenance.
Issue 128’s Challenge (#72) is a Horned Owl by Naoyuki Yada. It’s a pretty stately horned owl, but you’ll have to google it to see that. I’ve struck yet again, making a more cartoonish version than the original. This one sort of looks like it could be in an anime.
Two things occur to me: most of the details of this are pretty clearly displayed in only a couple of photos, and if I looked at the reference models more when making these, they’d look more like they’re supposed to.
For the first, here are some pics with different lightings and some zooms. For the second, it’s probably more artistic to have your own interpretation of a crease pattern. Plus, I like cute models.
