    I really like the style in this piece so far.

    I look forward to seeing where it goes

    Bryan Silva>> Thanks. It is acutally quite fun

    The Namek>> Here it is with the default zb3 shader which describes the form a bit better. Lowered the elbow a bit and gave him a more "balancing" pose.
    Thanks a lot for the input.

    webguy>> Cheers.

    jay_lenn>> Will do!

    Meats Meier>> Wow! Thanks for the interest. To hear it from you does generate some extra ether on the motivation-grill, I must admit.

    A small update:
    - Posed the rider more balanced and added some details to him.
    - New material.

    A lot more to coming up.

    Oooh... I love this! So much fun to look at. They look like a pair of rascals together. Great work Jais, this is going to be great.

    I'm liking this design a lot... Keep going with this! My only suggestion right now is about the dragon's pose. If the body is long enough, you might want to try moving the back end over just a bit, so that one leg isn't right under the head, and maybe down a bit so that the pointing hand's silhouette isn't lost against the body... These characters look like they'd be a ton of fun to pose and animate!

    The rider's looking really cool. Right now he has a great naked native feel to him, like a Wose or something.

    The only critique I have is that the tail on the dragon seems a bit stiff and angular. Other than that so far so good mate!

    Plakkie>> Rascals. Nice term for them. Cause thats what I would like them to look like.

    Mr.Monster>> Thanks.

    Doktor X>> I think you are right about that it wouuld be nice to have the pointing hand free of the body. Will try it out later. Thanks for the input.

    andreseloy>>

    slickmax>> Worked a bit on the telescope but I'll give it some more details and stuff acutally.

    reverendwyrm>> Hehe. Yeah he looks a bit wosy. Would like him to be more scout combined with wose, so I have put a hood on him.
    Will work more on the pose of the dragon once I have put some more of the important elements into the model.

    UPDATE:

    Just adding elements to get a better feel of how to pose the dragon in relation to these elements.
    Think I'll start the texturing now, before making to many more props and stuff.

    C&C are of course very welcome.

    I'm with the National Dragon Riders Safety Board, and I feel that the weight of that telescope and the outstretched manner of use captured in this image constitute a breach of safety protocol, Section IV, Sub-Section A56, Paragraph 67, Sub-Paragraph 3. You have 3 days to appeal, before this infraction is brought before the Dragon Board, who detest the waste of a rider after a Dragon has put so much training into him. They take many years to train such an individual at great cost of time and patience. The fine is 3,000,000,000 DRG and a review upon payment that this safety hazard has been rectified.

    Looking great!

    Bryan Silva>> Yeah that was an ear poking through.
    Made another hood for him.

    After a long vacation, work, partying, women, beach, etc. etc.
    I came back to this project.

    I still miss a lot of stuff before texturing.

    -I want to make another binocular.
    -I want to make some kind of belt thing for the rider to hold on to when he is not holding the binoculars. Dont know what it is called in english but its the installation that goes from the mouth of a horse to the hands of the rider.
    -I want to make the dragon hood a little different where the horns are cut off.
    -I want to make some teeth for the dragon.
    -A little more things and belts on the dragon as well.
    -Better defention of the dragon scales.

    Suggestions and crits are more than welcome.

    I will post some more angles the next time.
