    Just look at the great white toon shark that 3D Universe did for DAZ - lovely smile! :D

    Hmm...... I thought sharks only had one expression and that was the smiley face? ....... could be wrong!

    Yes, those are great toony characters by 3D Universe! Although, I am partial to his human toon models as well.

    Hmmm... I'm not sure a dragon smiling would be a good thing, so I am temporarily going to stick with Steve's toon Great White or, as I call him, "Bruce".

    Cheers,

    Cliff

    Delightful Image!! =)
    Bruce was the name of the mechanical shark Speilberg used in Jaws ......... Robert Shaw (Quint) also had a not so flattering name for him LOL and one of the reasons that film has amazing POV from the shark.

    Yup, which is where Pixar got the name for their toon shark in Finding Nemo - though I'm not aware of the name Robert Shaw gave the mechanical shark... unless it's not the great white first, or the great white second, but the great white...

    Cheers,

    Morph idea:
    • Dragon Shark (with a hammerhead sub-morph)

    Actually, the Nothosaurus might not be far off that:

    DK Find Out! | Fun Facts for Kids on Animals, Earth, History and more!

    but without the hammerhead morph - ouch, think of the smearing UVs!

    Note: Of course, Nothosaurus is yet another one of my favourites. I seem to have a LOT of favourites. In this case I blame a comic called "2001 AD", and specifically a strip within in called "FLESH" which for a while featured a Nothosaurus called "Big Hungry" :D

    Cheers,

    Cliff

    Huh? Is this thread "jumping the shark" ?! ;)

    I just joined the Rendo Prime to buy the GAME OF THRONES - like palace of the Dragon's Mother by Apple Jack set FOR your Dragon, @Chris!!

    Did I already suggest a Shark-headed dragon? If not then a Shark Headed morph, especially Hammerhead, would be cool (for that matter a fin on the back would also be great. :)

    It's a custom skin off of the original. I may have it stashed around here some where if you want, but you will have to tweak the horns and such to get them to look accordingly. I think the morph I used is the Hellborn dragon for Daz Dragon 3.

    Introducing Ambopteryx longibrachium the latest Mesozoic feathered dragon discovered. Like Yi qi, its close relative, it is a scansoriopterygid.

    It has been proposed that vertebrate flight evolved independently four times rather than three as previously believed, Pterodactyls, Birds, Bats and now Scansoriopterygids. For more information see New species of bat-wing dinosaur discovered

    Oops! I forgot about other non avian dinosaurs like Microraptor that independently evolved flight, but their mode of flight is similar to that of birds, via feathered wings, and they are closely related to the birds. Scansoriopterygids were non avian dinosaurs but their mode of flight is more akin that of bats and pterydactyls.
