Similar to the Blue Dragon (Midght Dragon) this guy was entire modelled by poly (slice, extrude, move) but this time in 3DS Max, as part of the process of learning that package for a larger project. As a yardstick, this one really helped me by having the Blue Dragon to compare to. It’s amazing to look at it now, as it’s embarrassingly “rubbery” when I look at it, I’d LOVE to revisit this guy with modern sculpting approach.
Strangley (even though it makes me sqirm to look at this now, as does most old artwork) it was phenominally popular at the time, and even ended up front page as an article on CGSociety.org! There’s a “making of” the dragon article as well, which I’ll put here as soon as the rest of the content of this site is ready.
