    Well I'm no sculpture, mainly because the techniques are so mysteriously innaccessable! Thanks for sharing, this looks like a fun project, I'd love to try sometime when I take a break from my drawing and painting. I would love to buy a book...either as a collected works or a how-to version.

    My son and I both loved the Draco dragon on that movie, he is 3.

    You're very talented and may you recieve many happy karmic returns for spending the time to write this tutorial.

    Smellybug,

    I was fortunate enough to recently have taken up a DSL connection and have enjoyed the flexibility of going back and forth through the thread in lightspeed. This has been an incredible tutorial and I'm sure to come back to reference it in the future.

    In case I missed something, would you mind telling us what single factor you believe has best contributed to your ability to create such a "believable" creature. I probably know the answer to this already, but...

    The thing is, you have captured some basic elements of both human and animal anatomy and reconfigured them into your creature in such a way that it is highly realistic, although we know in our mind that such a creature doesn't really exist (?). I think that even artists sometimes forget how important the basics are to achieving the master stature. I know that some in the "fine arts" fields might think that the knowledge of anatomy is, in today's twisted world, inconsequential to the value we can place in an artist's body of work.

    I have always admired, and can only hold the highest regard, those artists--such as yourself--who have done their legwork and toiled their way through learning the very difficult nuances of how anatomy works. Of course, this is only but one aspect that makes this tutorial so spectacular, but I would be interested in hearing from your personal take on how significant knowing the basics of anatomy has been in your work.

    Cheers to you! :chug:

    Smellybug: I used to buy Cinefex many years ago, and marvelled at the esoteric film making process. My eye would always linger on the phenomenal maquettes. I remember seeing a long haired guy in a t-shirt with a Walkman sculpting something for Jurrasic Park. Was that you? I forget which issue it was, but it made a lasting impression on me.
    Without this phenomenal tutorial I wouldn't know where to start.

    You have my eternal gratitude.

    I hope to post some of my own work soon.

    Ok, We have all seen the monsters... In every turorial, a monster. maybe for your next one, you can do a person in a pose, like drinking and sitting down. something close to that.
