Mythical Dragon Tiamat.... with five heads...they are unique from each other. This is the first time i ever tried to do a hue shifting technique.

Amazing stuff, I think you should have kept the background in the preview.

Ah, I've seen this on another forum. This is excellent, great job. I think the hue shifting is very effective.

yeah i am aware that some versions of Tiamat (greek mythology) is a queen goddess... but some resources i hooked-up from some dragon sites there is a dragon named after Tiamat... and i saw it first in a RPG game, like most RPGs represent Tiamat as a winged multi-headed dragon... i would have named it Hydra.. but Hydras have no wings.

Where did you found description of Tiamat appearance?

The deity Tiamat has not always been represented by a 5 headed dragon figure. I believe she was represented like that in the Final Fantasy games first but before she was represented as a normal women like deity.

user
Filax_666 (Level 6 Hitman) @ 9/18/2006 13:11
God of evil dragons, right? (from what I remember from Draconomicon...) Very welll pixelled, but the preview suck big time. I wouldn't have clicked if I hadn't seen the huge amount of faves this has...

user
teej (Level 2 Corporal) @ 9/17/2006 15:35
the previous version was kind of dark, not only that the bg is white, it made the dragon look like silhouette... so i made it a little brighter

user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/16/2006 22:02
I no longer looks like the one I rated

user
teej (Level 2 Corporal) @ 9/16/2006 17:24
yeah youre right, ive used for the pillow shading for hep with the lightsource... btw ive put some temporary background color... (as im still doing the background)... the piece just dont look good on the white background.

user
Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/14/2006 12:03
See, people, what did I tell ya?  Dithergasmic dragon + 4 extra heads = automatic weekly showcase.

Some of the belly segments are pillowshaded, though I'm not sure that could be helped given the lightsource.

user
Atooi (Level 5 Soldier) @ 9/14/2006 07:31
Nicely done. How many colors?

user
Dark Rogue (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 9/14/2006 05:54
Congrats on your first weekly showcase(I think). You changed the color...? I can't tell a difference. Maybe a bit bluer. Are you going to make that background you were talking about?

user
teej (Level 2 Corporal) @ 9/13/2006 14:23
thanks.... btw, ive modified the color a bit.

user
Huggkruka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/13/2006 09:30
Very, very nice. It looks like a cross between a pixel piece and a CGi model. A good one.

user
cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/8/2006 13:52
omgitISaDDD.  You settled on a good choice of colors.  Looks great, the only crits I can really think of are possibly lighter teeth and merging a couple colors for a lower color count; several are used rather infrequently.

user
teej (Level 2 Corporal) @ 9/8/2006 12:38
thanks.... i notice it looks nicer on a dark background.

user
brena (Level 1 Gangster) @ 9/8/2006 10:39
This is amazing.. I especially love each individual head.

user
Dark Rogue (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 9/8/2006 07:19
The yellow highlights are good, the hue shifting worked out well for a first timer. Great job, 6/6 + fav.

This is brilliant lighting on the heads, it makes it look realistic .. like like you can touch the heads.

user

Glad to see you finally finished it! And it turned out great. It's bottom-left head's fangs seem odd though.
