Building great bionicle dragons are probably the more challenging aspect of bionicle mocing. This is because dragons usually have more parts than the ordinary toa. In my case, I make dragons from a minimum of 120 parts to as high as a thousand plus parts as compared to toa of around 30 to 70 parts and titans from 40 to 120 parts.
The good thing about using more parts though is that is gives you more creative leeway in the build. More parts means more details and a bigger creation.
Color coordination is just as important in building a dragon. Its always best to use a maximum of three colors(inclusive of black/gray parts). This will give your dragon a more refined look as compared to using many colors. Most of my dragons can easily be identified of what color race.(green, white/blue, red, black).
The head of the dragon is the most important part of the build. The head determines the kind of body it should have and not the other way around. I build my dragon head first and this always take me around 30 to 40 percent of the build time because I make so many revisions befor I am satisfied. The eyes of the dragon are equally important to me as its fangs as this mean either a dorky, scary or fierce dragon.
I will continue my dragon building tips again... If you have any comments and questions, please feel free to add comment on this conversation. Permalink
