Crystal WIP by Crystal-Dragon1 Crystal WIP by Crystal-Dragon1
OMG i'm so proud of this so far!
this model of Crystal has a total of 224,076 vertices (with the subsurface modifier applied) and it's not even finished yet.
i do feel a bit guilty about working on her though because i owe a couple of people animations (which are still being worked on), i am helping with the models in CotBF (which Crystal is featuring in as an extra :D) and i also owe someone a short story from a while back as well. so i really shouldn't be working on her, but i couldn't help it :iconimhappyplz:
the main reason i'm proud of her though is that i forced myself to work on the little details i HATE doing or just forget about like the feet and flight-hand (the part of the wing where all the long skinny finger things join to, i don't think that's what it's really called, but I've always called it that :XD:). i also tried my hardest to put some muscles definition into Crystal, particularly around the limbs, something i can't remember doing before.
but one thing i am a little peeved about is that she looks kind of like a guy. i don't want that, so can someone suggest any way i can make her look more feminine without taking away muscle tone or giving her boobs? i'm looking at changing something in her face but i just don't know what :/
and those hands! ew, they just look terrible :XD:
Crystal and the model of her belongs to me

Hmmm... I think a shorter muzzle might make her look feminine.  Shorter and a bit narrower maybe.
Anywho, it looks awesome!  I have no idea what you mean by vertices, but that sounds like a lot! :XD:
Keep it up!

hmm, i'll give that a try and see how it looks.
verticies are little points on the model that you can use to edit, the more of them you have, the more detail you can have in a model. that's the easiest way to explain it i think :XD:. not really, for me it's a lot, but professional 3D modelers have millions of vertices in their characters, but they have super computers basically, that'd just crash my PC :D
thanks!

Amazing! This 3D Model is Epic and Crystal looks great, and i agree with you, the Hands looks weird.

Wow Cathy this is amazing so far. I love the amount of detail in the model with all the muscles defined plus the detail in just the model itself is wonderful. I'm just loving it so far. Keep it up

I tried once, I forgot how to attach the legs and head to the body and the wings failed :/

I've had moments like that too, but i found it's better if you start from the head and make the dragon as one object, rather than attach all the pieces together.
