Dragon Ergler

My nephew drew this sketch a few years ago presumably as a character to one of his "computer games". You see my nephew has dreams of becoming a computer game designer, building characters, levels and maps. I was planning to render his creations in 3D using Blender3D but never actually found the time to do it (I find the task a bit daunting and all my creations so far are limited to 3D models of furniture and appliances).

A few weeks ago I was talking to a friend of mine and he told me that he just studied 3D Studio Max. I showed him the sketch and encouraged him to do a 3D model of the dragon character (I can't quite make out if the dragon is supposed to be called Ergler or Engler) as an excercise.

I now present you with the final result. I really like the way it turned out. What do you think? If I have time I might do a Blender3D version and see if my version is as good as this one (he is a graphic artist by profession and is only learning now about 3D tools - I just had to say that in case my version turns out to be looking more like a green blob than a dragon).











Many thanks to "Tiger" for the 3D renders.
