Latest post of the previous page:

Am I the only one whi sees Sullivan from monsters INC in the dragon's face? I mean, look at it. Big jaw, dull fangs... You guys complain that furred dragon is not that good dragon. And I agree. But for me thats secondary. The face of the dragon bothers me. Compare it to anything from HTTYD, and you find NO resemblence! If I didnt know better, I WOULD have believed that this is Clifford the big green flying dog.
Can I have a fish please?

I liked this movie.

I didn't like Elliot's face very much, but he was at least expressive and had cute ears. I also didn't mind that he was covered in fur cause he looked like he was built for cuddling. I thought the dragon was especially cute whenever he was sleeping or laying down. I'll definitely be picking this up when I can buy it cause I wanna sketch some of the poses. I also wanna support the production of more dragon movies.

The store was clearly rudimentary and it was riddled with plot holes, but I was pleased with the way it ended.

I sketched elliot a bit yesterday after seeing the movie, so here's a quick sketch:

Found this small article/video about the design process of Elliot, which also includes some unused prototype designs; it seems they always intended it to have fur, but some of them look pretty weird! ... 21685.html



I also agree with the statement that "Maleficient is the definitive Disney dragon", growing up I really wished to see more dragons like her in shows and movies.

[Should this thread be moved to the "Fictional Reptiles" section? ^^;]
