I thought I share one of my low poly dragons with you. It has a short animation. I hope you like it !

    I like dragons and yours is a fine specimen. I really like its armour and silhouette.

    There are three blends in the download: an animation plus dragon_1 and dragon_2. What is the difference between dragon_1 and dragon_1? Also, I couldn't find the dsplc.psd image.

    Seeing that your dragon has two sets of wings, I did some research to see what I could find out. There is some discussion on the pros and cons of one and two sets of wings. The dragon results were interspersed with pages about the dragonfly insect, which has two sets of wings, but I believe it uses the rear set in a sideways motion to help it to hover more efficiently.

    I couldn't find much on the motion of two sets of wings. What made you decide on the opposite movement of the wings? Lovely animation, by the way.

    just use your fantasy :-D dragon2.blend file is just a safe saving... dsplc.psd is the dsplc.tif file :-D - the final score is matter :-D

    I think the double set of wings are cool. In fantasy, you can do whatever you want. :)

    I've been looking for a good, free dragon for ages, and came across yours today. Works like a dream. When I get time, I will adjust the animation to add into the end of this video clip (https://vimeo.com/63453843) which desperately needs some proper climax. I have found the actor - just got to edit in the action!

    Thanks for the sharing! Grant H

    it's graet, but i think, that it schouldn't go so much up and down, because when it would go down, the other pair of the wings is holding it.

    The best free low poly dragon with CC-0 license too. I still don't know if my games need dragons, but if I need 1 I'll just use this one.

    Can some1 please help, this dragon is only rendered in the rest position... whenever i animate him and move in pose mode it doesnt matter, he is still only rendered in the rest position...

    I fixed the problem. Select the armature, go to edit mode, shift+d to duplicate all the bones, ctrl+p and separate bones. Now delete the first armature and parent the dragon to the new armature you duplicated from the first one. Hope this helped you bcs it drove me nuts...
