Dragon Dance [SFM] by argodaemon Dragon Dance [SFM] by argodaemon
Yup. (So was not expecting this to become as popular as it did.  Guess I should expand on this description a bit.)
---
I only did the animating on this; I take zero credit for the model work (see below).  Took about 3 hours start to finish to do the whole cycle.  It just started with the random idea of "I want to make a dragon dance".

The technicality behind whether this is a Dragon or a Wyvern I feel is a waste of time, especially considering it is still a giant lizard dancing.  I call it a Dragon. Gets the point across. :P

Animated in Source FilmMaker
GIF compiled in Adobe Photoshop CC
Dragon model is from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda)
Source Port of the model was downloaded from SFMBox, but that site has since went down, so I no longer know who ported them.

If you want to use this as a webcam, I have no problem with it. :P

I do mostly pony animations and such. While I would love you as a watcher, do know you will be seeing lots of pony. I am a dummy!

argodaemon Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Filmographer
I always say it is a yes and no answer. Animating can be easy, but depends on how in-depth, complicated or refined you want it. 1 min of video can take 1 hour or 1 year to do.

Did you make a custom rig script for this model?
Reply
:iconargodaemon:
argodaemon Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist Filmographer
There is no IK rig.  I am unsure how easy it would be to make one for it.  I know a bit how to modify them, but the dragon is a completely different skeleton.

:icongeigerkat404:
GeigerKat404 Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist Filmographer
Oh okay. I actually tried to make an IK for a similar dragon model. It works well in exception of the hands that don't move at all.
 I was just wondering if it's because each arm in this case has 6 bones whereas rig_biped_simple base is regularly meant for models with 4 bones per arm.
 On the other hand I haven't defined those extra arm bones and their constraint hierarchy in the script yet.

Pretty cool. At first glance, it looks like a Rathian. Probably because of the greyish coloring.

Not a Wyvern, a wyrm. A Wyvern cannot spit fire, unlike the "dragons" of Skyrim. And the fault is on Bethesda anyway for calling it a dragon in the first place -.-

Pff, always hated calling them "wyrms", sounds too much like "worms" :XD:
Yeah, Wyverns spit poisen. Not sure which is more cool, spitting pure poisen or spitting pure flames.
Hhmmm....

Definitely fire. With poison you just have to have a shield, with fire a shield Will not even do the trick.
