Draphim the Dragonborn


Recommended Posts

New year, new MOC. Basically I just had an idea involving using parts from the Smaug bigfig and it turned into this guy. Meet Draphim the Dragonborn:

Not much to say about this guy really, except that he is an anthro dragon warrior that utilises parts from the Smaug bigfig. Plus I wanted to use that awesome printed Ninjago dragon shield piece and try some new torso and leg constructs. I also learnt that small Technic panels really work wonders for filling out arms where they use just a single bone to avoid them becoming flat. I think he came out really well, and I'm really pleased with the shield construct in particular.

As always, comments, upvotes and constructive criticism appreciated  :)

This guy is great!  I can't believe you haven't received more accolades for this MOC.  Who doesn't love a dragon-themed character, especially one as BA as this?!

Thanks! Give it some time. It's only 7 faves on Flickr away from becoming my most faved MOC so far (which is currently Skull Imitator Corphos)  :)

 

 

Glorious to say the least. That shield is outstanding. The only thing looking a little off is the golden mace piece on top of the staff.

Thanks. The gold mace piece was more a personal choice to spread the gold out a little bit in the colour scheme, to go with the rather gold-heavy shield  :)

 

 

Nice! This is some sweet armoring and weapons. I really love when people take poops and make them into fully fleshed-out figures, and the wings pull it together. The thickness of the legs feels a little off, though — the thighs should be thickest, slimming down towards the ankles. 

Thanks. The legs do actually thin out like that, but I admit the angles don't really make it very clear. I was going to add armour add-ons to the thighs to thicken them but it made them look ridiculously thick so I thought it'd be better off without them  :)

 

I think it's clear to say though - expect more Dragonborn MOC's from me over the next couple of months!  :D

I want to insert some skyrim reference, but I dunno. Awesome MOC nonetheless, great use of pieces and colors! Everything just flows together in my option.
