Horatio Spike: Dragon

Enjoy it (because) I know you will!


My second dragon, this one came to me in a vision while i was bathing, and i built him furiously a few minutes before I had to get to work. I finished the main body then came back that night and finished the rest. My wife helped with ideas for the wings and the eyes. She rocks at details like that.

Hi Lenny,

Horatio is awesome!

I like so many details but especially, the hairy chin, horns, and tiny wings. The articulation also looks great. He looks like a friendly dragon :D

Hey, that is awesome! I love the head, and his almost 'dumb' look. The feet are excellent also. Great work.

I like how he seems dopey. Kinda out of it. I like te head. It has just anough detail to make it look cool. I t does not have to much and it does not not have anough. Did that make sense?

Hey Cracky,

Awesome dragon. It seems very cartoon-y to me.

Kinda reminds me of an emaciated Elliot from Pete's Dragon. Very inventive!

Hi Lenny,
I really like your dragon. His wings made me laugh and I really enjoy the 'cartoon' style.

Very Cool Lenny,

Was this intended to look like Pete's Dragon, because it sure reminded me of that little movie right down to putting the old songs back in my head. :D

I am amazed you came up with that idea whilst bathing. I rarely have a though past nap time when I have a bath.

After a long absence, I have returned. I can't wait to start building again.

What a wonderful creation you've made Lenny! I really love the head, but really, the whole dragon just oozes character. This is a real step up from your last big dragon, just color me impressed.

I only have two points of criticism.

First, I'm not liking the joints in the neck and tail. They're too spindly and make him look too segmented. Admitedly, however, I have no clue how to rectify it without totally redesigning him, and it might just take away from his charm.

Second, he doesn't look like a Horatio. He looks like a George, or a Mortimer (Morty). Maybe a Floyd. But that's just the way I feel about it :)

Great job as always.
