About this creation


Yeah, the backstory is pretty much that...





So, this one was kinda of an experiment, and, as you can see, very different from the style I'm used to build.



Its body structure, from tail to neck, is all built in the "socket+socket+socket" method, wich allows a good amount of flexibilty, but not a very strong structure(its darn hard to pose his head without it bending down), but all-in-all its a good technique...





The colorfulness of it was not exactly intended(I was going to keep only with the blue, yellow and white), but in the end, due to alck of pieces, and to make it 'brighter', I added that yellow-to-red gradient in the end... Dont' know if its too much color, but I'm pretty satisfied with it...












Don't know its exact lenght, buts its about 1 meter, a bit more...





And thats it, folks, hope you like it!

I'm surprise I never commented on this. It looks good, even now. So many of these pieces work so well with the eastern dragon aesthetic.

I don't get it - I'm SURE I Rated this awesome thing LONG ago, but on top of that, even so - that would mean it was a MOC already Rated that appeared in my 'New From Your Favorite Builders' row. *shakes head* Idk. Well anyway - here's an attempt at re-creating the previous Review: I absolutely LOVE the eastern theme upon this build - sinuous and fantastically articulated. All the little details really sell it - the whiskers and foreshortened arms. Just GREAT work - and this may be a superfluous 'Like', but I'm rating it again anyway. =) Cheers~

This is fantastic! I think the colors are perfect, and the design inspired. The hind legs are smallish but do not distract from the creature overall. 5/5

Quoting Monarth GS Agreeing with Yuri, it has a bit too many colors. The white doesn't blend to the whole too well, so without that it would've been a bit more functional color scheme in my opinion. Also I have to point out the little 'mistake' that appears on the backleg structure bit too often in my opinion in dragon/beast mocs. It's simply that it's double jointed and backward bended, which looks just... wrong. You'd need to add an extra joint to the upper part of the backleg and bend it forward. Other than that, great :)
I'm aware of the back legs 'mistake, but I can assure it was intentional(I'm actually quite used to complain about this mistakes on beasts legs). The thing is most eastern dragon do have legs bended that way(I've done a research before building), like an eagles's leg. Thanks for commenting, btw.

Beautiful work ! I think there are too many colors, but good thing you strategically placed them. The way the body bends is truly awesome. The head design is truly well done and awesome ! Great job. 5/5

Quoting Krighas ... whoa this is cool ! the head is nice. but i find the white pieces along the dragon's body a bit...disturbing.. i think it would be better if they're blue. just a suggestion..if you like it well nvm :) overall, a great moc !
yeah, the white pieces were kinda of a last resource, I was running out of sockets... I could have sued some black, but I think white is a bit more...'alive'. And thanks for commenting, folks!

Woohoo! MOCPages working properly for me again, and what do I encounter? A Chinese dragon! Great shape to it, and yeah, colour coordination with limited pieces can be quite tricky at times. Great job. Keep it up!

Yes! The shape is near-perfect! Being a Chinese myself, I must say this is fantastic! Awesome job!
