Dragon by AndreasWerchmeister Dragon by AndreasWerchmeister
This was done for an university assignment where the brief was to redesign a character / creature from norse mythology and produce a 3d model to be used as a Warhammer styled figurine.

There's a few things I would change, mainly the rock, it doesn't look that realistic. With the time given to complete this project I decided to focus my energy on the dragon itself, and now with other projects, I'll just leave it as it is.

Sculpt done in Zbrush and rendered in Keyshot

I really like how you handled the shoulder joint, arms/wings, and tail.  I'm unfamiliar with Norse Mythology so I'm looking at this purely from a design standpoint; it definitely creates both a sense of agility and speed while being worn and ancient.  There's a good sense of bulkiness to its neck; implying a strong bite or a heavy skull.  The creature is a bit top heavy but that's fine.

Also, I looked at your other Niohoggr piece and personally think that D (the extended jaw horn one) would have been great on this too.

Thank you very much for sharing!

Brilliant job, nice design.
I guess the tyranid-likeness was done on purpose to fit the warhammer theme better and I have to admit that you caught that very well as he has that big and mean jet agile look of the tyranids. Especially the torso and tail.
The details are well done and yet not too much for a miniature.
The rock is fine but looks like it wouldn't hold his weight for long, I would suggest to add more ditches so it doesn't look like clay anymore.
Too much details on the rock however may distract from the miniature so it's on you if you are going to change it anyways ;D

All in all, in my opinion you accomplished the assignment very well :D

I could have, as an optional part of the assignment, but I decided not to because of time issues. It would be cool to do some day. It's a bit pricey tho.
