Arrogath Scale Development by KatePfeilschiefter Arrogath Scale Development by KatePfeilschiefter
Just wanted to figure out how the scales should flow across this guy's anatomy, though it kind of ended up as an overall character redesign of Arrogath.

p.s.

His tail fan is made up of modified elongated scales rather than any bone structure or webbing.

Awesome!  Love how you did that surface texture- I'm learning how to do textures and I'm doing it WRONG a lot. XD Just gotta keep practicing.

His scales turned out fabulous! And, as always, your anatomy is to die for.

I'll admit to not being familiar with that name. Is that just the name of the red dragon?

Yes, the red dragon on the welsh flag is a character from the Mabinogion

That's not the one where two dragons are fighting under the foundations of a castle is it?

I really must look this stuff up, I used to be so into it.

Yeah that's it, and Merlin dictates the two dragons represent the saxons and the welsh

I genuinely want to know how you make the scales look so nice and even and have the patience to do so

Reference and drawing at a large resolution. Patience surprisingly doesn't tend to be a problem, drawing tiny little scales can be strangely addicting

That's cool!
I tend to get addicted to drawing tiny details so maybe it wouldn't be so hard if i sat down and made myself focus and just do it haha
