Territorial Challenger by Ascynd Territorial Challenger by Ascynd
Someone was asking what the copperhead campestergum was reacting to... [link]

It's THIS guy.

Swiddy's Skywyrm... I always liked the striking black and white original pattern, and thought it would look nice with the new bump map, so I combined the two. =)

I wanted to show a thumbnail of the copperhead at the top of this comment but I could not because I don't have a premium account.

Absolutely awesome! I've been wanting to get Swidhelm's skywyrm a long, long time. Finally getting it this week. Your image alone would compel a person to get this dragon. 

Seriously, that image is excellent. There's such an obvious ferocity and territoriality here.

Thanks! I aught to get around to more texture tweaking on this one sometime, it's a good, solid model.

Looks great! The pose, the pattern of the skin, blur on the body... It looks as if it was a shot from a film. I just love the markings. This combination of black, white and red makes a striking impression of a dangerous fellow one don't want to cross paths with.

Thanks... it blurs out some of the details on the bump map... which was absolutely necessary on the first version, but this version could have gotten away with less. =)

Thanks! The texture is Swiddy's, I just modified it a bit. It's one of the original two that came with the model, but the original scale pattern was somewhat net-like. He later released an expansion with a bump map that looked more dinosaur-scale like, so I took the new bump map, tweaked the base color to match the black and white one, painted the dark markings onto it with several layers (2 color burn, 1 multiply, 1 inverted high contrast lighten) and hey presto, old markings, new scales. =)

Then I just popped the new bump map on, changed the specular to phong model and tweaked the material dials. Oh I also changed his eyes from blue to red. lol...
