Proof of concept material settings (skin bump/specular map cribbed from RawArt’s Draco for now plus some reappropriated Fabricator mappings).

Can’t help but to feel that it kinda needs more. More what, I don’t know. I’m using omnifreaker’s Human Surface for skin settings.

I’m trying to shoot for red-gold coloration. Using a fairly harsh light w/extra specular light right now. More mellow lights show some other things better.

Not fully pleased with the inner horn set’s displacement/bump values. Needs to be tweaked.

Need to figure out nice teeth settings (I want to do some parts as shaders as opposed to image maps; claws are all good for now).

This guy is huge. I mean HUGE. Bigger than Nybras; books place Pit Fiend height to 12’, and Nybras looks like he’s about 10’ to top of his head (not horns). Millennium Subdragon turned into a tail donator (not shown), and cut-and-re-rigged tail is sticking out of his butt.

AMAZING! Great work Skiriki. You never fail to Inspire smile

Question for you… Do you have Deviant Art? I’d love to add you smile

Was a picture a friend linked to me while we were talking <3
He didn’t link to the deviation page so I have no clue where it is and don’t wanna go searching for it. (Not lazy, I just don’t like searching DA anymore. Especially if dragons are involved.)
.
.
General rule of thumb:  If I post something and don’t explicitly say I made it, assume it is something I found elsewhere.  The cuter-than-can-be drawing of the chibi-fied Malygos isn’t something I did, but was something I wanted to do XD
.
.
.
Anyway to answer your question…
http://sylxeriaguardian.deviantart.com/  <—- Less views, most of my “normal” stuff. Gathering dust since no one seems to care.
http://akaikosh.deviantart.com/  <—- More views (By thousands.), anything I don’t feel comfortable uploading to my “normal” account.
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/akaikosh/  <—- Is can find everything on my two DA accounts here sans 3D Art because of their unforgiving and poorly thought out Acceptable Uploads Policy that really hurts most digital artists (I assume none of the moderates there know squat about animation or anything that goes into digital art.)
.
To clarify what I said about the stuff I don’t want associated with my first DA account, is mostly stuff like this:
Not pervy stuff or gore ^_^;
.
.
I actually drew that first one as a gift for a friend over on FA because he was feeling depressed. It’s his character and my character :3
Though you can’t SEE mine as she’s inside him XD (And she’s fine by the way. Completely unharmed <3 )

I’m not exactly too worried about people knowing I’m into that sort of uh “genre”, as long as their knowledge of it does not come from the wikipedia article on the subject (Which is total BS.  Out of seven people I regularly talk with on FA, none of them agree with it.)
.
I am, however, somewhat ashamed/embarrassed when I upload a lot of that sort of art and have people that Watch me that aren’t interested in it raspberry

I added both of you (both being you of course LOL) As Ive mentioned before, I love ALL art HAHA!

It a shame that there are still sites that refuse to agree that 3d is art! - Those who disagree with 3d as art generally wouldn’t have ANY experience with 3d! And obviously no realistic or academic knowledge of art.  If you studied art, you would know that Art is exceptionally broad!! Even a dictionary defines art as broad spanning. But by the looks of furaffinity (despite I am not a user there) It appears to be focused on drawn and toon art, so it’s understandable that 3d is not allowed there, much of the Anime and Manga industry has the same requirements.

No they don’t refuse to acknowledge 3D as art, it was born largely from a LOT of screenshots from SecondLife and other games literally flooding the site, as well as a number of people uploading promo pics from stores (Like the biguana’s pic of him climbing up that tree?  Uploading pictures like that. Not even bothering to change them).
.
Eventually they had it so you can’t upload it unless more than 90% of it is something you did. Modeling most of the scene but having say a Biguana would to some people warrant reporting it (As you did not make the biguana, nor did you heavily modify it or the textures).  Most Vue art likely would get taken down because the focus point of it might be a raptor you bought but they’d ignore the rest of the scene just because of the raptor model.
.
Secondly, it was also *partially* response to the “Krystal Model Abuse” that flooded the site years ago. Some free model of a character from the Star Fox series was made available, then thousands of copy-paste Poser and Crap-tastic Photomanipulations showed up.
.
So while I do understand where they’re coming from, it isn’t really the best of solutions since animation especially is an entire different world that what most people there are used to.
.
.
Anyway, 3D art IS allowed there.  There’s a number of people who do sculpting in zBrush and upload their work. *Tries to dig up a particularly fascinating raptor he found*

Okay so I couldn’t find the raptor sculpt.  Oh well.
I did manage to find two other things.
.
A cute raptor-something hybrid, and a real sculpt a friend of mind did of her pet in WoW.
(Photos of sculpts and stuff are only allowed if the sculpt is something you did. Photos of action figures and the like are not allowed.)

And cartoony is obviously relative:
.
First pic is a dragon trying to push the other into the water as a prank. And not having much luck XD
(Lulz at the sleeping dragon being blissfully unaware of what’s going on and the other one tying to use the tree as leverage to push her into the water XD)
.
And the second is a drawing of a wyvern and his mate on the beach. I luv how they can use their wings to walk XD
But I’ve never seen them used as a cape or for hugs D:
I’ve seen the gargoyles from that animated series do it, but never a wyvern <3
.
.
I’d commssion hthe artist for stuff, but although the $120 or so prices would result in some awesome stuff, I’d rather learn to make purdy art myself :(
.
(Fullview is a must on the wyvern picture so you can see their cute faces <3 )

Fyre might get a kick out of this one though.  All of the classes in WoW played by whelps from the five (six) dragonflights. Six only if you’re like me and consider the Netherwing to be included <3
.
Normally I like the red dragons best, but I’m not too keen on playing a warlock. I’m a huntard through and through XD
Not too sure about being a green draggy but oh well. I like how the black deathknight whelp is fighting with an icecream cone XD
(THe artist is The-Six-Leaf-Clover, who is famous on FA for her “Munchies” dragon whelps. THese whelps are drawn in the same design, and are also obssessed with cooking treats. Hence the food and snacks in most of the images, like the cheese wheel on the Blue Dragon Mage, the Blue Dragon Priest blowing bubble gum, and so on)
.
.
I like how she replaced the picture of the planet with one of an egg XD
.
.
*edit*  I can’t identify the armor the netherwhelp is using, but I can tell right away the Green whelp Hunter is wearing the Dragonstalker armor from Classic XD
Quite fitting I think smile
