My next How to Train your DRAGON creation is the Tongue Twister. It is first seen in the httyd book 9: How to Steal a Dragons Sword. This moc was fairly hard to get right, so I hope you like it.
Here is a nice shot of his head. They have multiple eyes and can see very well in the dark. I like to give most of my dragons underbites like the dragons in the film. It helps them all look lie they are from the same world.
Here is a view of the whole dragon. It has a low to the ground body and a very long tail. It has large rock-like spikes on its back. These help it blend in well with its subterranean home.
Here is its tail. Not quite as good as the Exterminators, but I wanted to make it look unique. I liked how many silver horns had had to build this with. A Tongue Twister's tail may be long and powerful, but it is not the main weapon of the dragon.
Here is a shot of the body and legs. The legs a stumpy. This helps the dragon crawl through tight underground tunnels.
Now you may have been wondering how this dragon got its name. Here is the answer. Tongue Twisters have a massive tongue which they use to kill prey. It is so strong and sticky that the dragon uses it to rip its prey apart before even bringing it to its jaws.
These dragons are no laughing matter. In the dark these long tongued monsters are the last thing any viking wants to meet.
This Viking has been "brave" enough to try and sneak up upon a tongue twister. Hiding behind a rock might give him an advantage....
Or it might seal his horrible fate. Hope you brought an eel to scare him off with!
Thanks for looking. I hope you like the moc. I am trying to make a balance between the rather nasty dragons of the books and the more pleasant dragons of the movie. More dragons yet to come. I have at least two more designs on the way.
I won't say your dragons are bad, partially because theyre one of the hardest things to build, especially in minifig scale - you have to keep detail and shape in perfect blance for it to look organic - the most importaint part of dragons. What I will say is that they're rather basic. And everybody has problems with curved body at first.
I hate to comment so much on my own thing, but I am going to anyway. I really appreciate the advice. I think I will probably remake some parts with those thoughts in mind. So eventually we will be seeing a Tongue twister 1.1 (maybe).
Thanks, I'll try. I have had most of these mostly complete for a while though, so that is part of the reason for my rapid posting. I am also hoping to make a landscape scene soon. I just have to get the parts together. Also my building style rather hinders really small detail. This is because I try and make my dragons for stability and accuracy. Still I could spend more time on these. Thanks.
Wow, you're going all out on these. Also what strikes me the most is that you've made this dragon all from your imagination, and with no reference of what it looks like.
However it looks as if your rushing into these guys. Take your time on them and try to give it that extra attention to detail.
