Impressive!

But:

1) Too smooth. Scale must have a relief on edges.
2) Window??? Is it dragon — or domestic pet?

P.S. Sorry if my english not very good

I'm working on a sculpting program right now but this will also be included in it - it will take some time but I will make better animations :)

All glory to the hypnodragon!!!

Great job, i love this one. What did you used to program this? Opengl + C + "some cool algorithm"? Looks pretty good :).

kinda makes me dizzy when looking at it too long. :D

how long did it take to create it? all that programming and rendering sounds like a time consuming task...

took a lot of time to find the right idea
and then for the programming... I already had a few things from my other 3d projects and I mostly used that - with a few additions

:iconhypnothalamus:
hypnothalamus Featured By Owner May 17, 2009  Professional General Artist
it is generated - I wrote the whole program that creates the tube, puts in textures, reflections, normal map
then there's some post processing done in PS, overlaying the initial animation and the deformed one (used the polar coordinates transform)
this could be made by hand in a 3d program but the initial project was made for this - [link] - and it can create larger dragons too :D

Holy. Freaking. CRAP.

For the record, no word or emoticon exists capable of describing the amount of pure win in this animation. Testing or not, this has got to be one of the best ones I've seen. I can only imagine how long the reflective effect on the scales took...

:iconhypnothalamus:
hypnothalamus Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2008  Professional General Artist
thanks a lot
as for the reflections - they're tweaked so it's basically a texture applied as a function of the normals and not real reflections
the thing worked at a few frames per second but that will change soon when I put everything under OpenGL and that should be real time
:D
