ravine dragon 4 by nebezial ravine dragon 4 by nebezial
this is a standard example of fourth forge wingwalker, first forge strenghtens the young dragons , gives them the ability to breathe fire and wingwalk, any subsequent forge increases their toughness, strenghtens the tellas in the scales, and refines their breath further

they spend more and more time wingwalking as they develop battle skills that involve fighting with their front legs which are used as arms, opposable thumb gives them great dexterity, and many believe that in the old world, in its early days dragons were the smiths of the gods

these are of course merely legends, mostly based on the nature of dragons, armor, fire, and meticulous patience

wait did you model this in maya? or another 3D animation program? or did you paint it...it looks so real and 3D that's why I'm asking, your work is absolutely stunning, definitely inspirational! I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future! :)
