    Chupacabra?

    Although, you could put a combo of fur and scales on him for a neat effect around the snout and eyes and feet and use like an Ocelot texture. Really Fun!!

    Dachshund morph and a lion's mane (recolored) for something Asian-styled. Not the grand Imperial sort, but a kind of pocket-dragon (or sleeve dragon, more likely)

    I really do like the cross-morphinc capability. As most people know, I do a lot of illos for Potterfics. I would be really chuffed to be able to design stable morph recipes for Hebridean Blacks, Welsh Greens, Peruvian Vipertooths, Sweedish Snortsnouts, and what all.

    That sounds like a pretty kewl Foo Dog?

    I like your thinking with the dragon stables! Would that would be called an aerie?

    Chris, do you think it would be possible to have a short neck option on the dragon?

    I like the idea of combining the dragon with other creatures, but I'd also like to be able to have the neck shorter.

    Love the combinations!

    This could be a really fun theme for a contest or render challenge.

    Oh . . . What kind of flying fantasy animal can YOU come up with? Now that would be a great theme. :D

    Or possibly how whimsical a creature can you create?

    I keep seeing visions of Pokemon type characters.

    I think I have some ideas on some mats for those.

    Kage, did you see the replies in the Backgrounds thread?

    YAY Eclark! a flying fox! (we have them here and I haven't been able to find that kind of 3D bat so would be AWESOME to add to my slow growing list of Aussie animals!)

    I guess a stable of dragons probably would be an aerie (eyrie?). But by stable, I meant being able to actually build a recipe for each breed. After all, why should i be the only one to use them?

    There has been a lot of discussion over the years on what to call a gathering of dragons. The answer it seems depends on the source or fictional setting a great deal. Some of my favorites though, are:
    • Clutch or Brood for hatchlings or eggs.
    Flight, Wing, or Cloud for a gathering of adult dragons are the more common terms used.
    Clan, if it is a family or tribe of intelligent dragons
    Dignity, or Circle, if the dragons are very old and sentient, as they are very wise and often in a ruler-ship or advisory position.

    My own personal use in the Whyrmwood Cycle - It was a Cycle of dragons, a pestilence a thousand thousand years in the making.

    Just my thoughts.
