Dragonsbane Poniard – Part 6 – The Dragon

The lower jaw looked a little thick to me, so I adjusted it.  The right side of the above image is after I engraved the jaw line and removed the excess metal.  The left, with the blue arrows, still shows some of the excess metal to go.  I want this to look like an alligator’s under jaw/throat area, with a dewlap of skin like she is just getting ready to exhale (fire, of course…)

And, above, three views of the top of the head, where I’ve added in the jagged scales on her top centerline, and scaled up the cranium.

Thanks for looking!
