Zemlya dwells deep beneath the surface, using his whiskers and spines to detect vibrations in the earth. His long slender build helps him to navigate narrow tunnels, but his lithe build belies his strength and speed. he can crush a man with his muscular body and poison him with his lethal bite. Zemlya is the greatest of the land wyrms.
About this creation
I know, I know: after a long MOC blackout I come back with ANOTHER dragon? Rest assured, there are even more awesome things coming in the very near future. This is more of a precursor to their arrival. I wanted to make a dragon of a more Asian style and also to demonstrate the full potential of the articulation system that I developed for Smaug. This is admittedly not a super original MOC: Zemlya uses the feet from Nyeba, the body design from Smaug, tail components from both, and the head is built using very similar principles. This is more of an evolutionary design rather than a revolutionary design. There are three color schemes included here: Obsidian Black, Tones of Earth, and Traditional Eastern.
Parts used: 1724
Please let me know in the comments which color scheme you prefer.
Very cool! Great dragon, very original with that body shape. I like all those barb-details, they give the dragon a very distinct look :-) Oh, personally i prefer the black version though the brown one looks nice too.
