Gator Dragon Maquette by SageKorppi Gator Dragon Maquette by SageKorppi
Maquettes are great for getting angles right when drawing, especially when drawing imagined creatures. This is a maquette I made of a dragon character I'm developing. I couldn't get the 3/4 view of his head right, so I decided to sculpt this to help.

For this dragon:



This is fairly rough because he's just a maquette. I really want to sculpt a model of him where I make sure everything is perfect and get all the nice textures on him. Though the thought of doing all those teeth again is...unappealing right now, haha!

"Gator Dragon" will change once the animal/character gets a name.

Medium = Super Sculpey with aluminum foil "armature".

And to think, I can't even make a halfway decent pot in art class.

This is so cool. Going to look super when it's done, for sure. I can't get over how great the teeth look already - you can really see the gator influence in their shape and placement. Did you bake the teeth before placing them in the mouth?

I did pre-bake the teeth ^^

The maquette reminds me of lagicarus from monster hunter tri. I like it :D

I only recently saw that creature and OMG it is cool! I'm sad all the figures for it are really expensive!

I like this version of your dragon: It's looks less like a winged Kaprosuchus & more like a real dragon (No offense to the original).

This is the same "version". I think people are missing the subtle differences between the dragon I've drawn and a Kaprosuchus in the side view (thus why I'm trying to do a 3/4 view). And to be fair, I'm a-okay with him looking like a winged Kaprosuchus ;)
