Continuing my current mood for Dragons (and Wyverns in this case), here's my next baby.

The Swidhelm's Skywyrm Bull [link] was posed in Poser and then imported into Vue for the rest of the scene.

One of Quadspinner's monuments [link] was used as the rock tower (several on top of one another to give it enough height) and for the bg, I sculpted a terrain, created the eco-system and then placed the scotts pine trees in the foreground.

DoF effect was performed in Photoshop with the Lens Blur filter using Vue's rendered z-map.

Software - Poser, Vue & Photoshop

PS - title help from the lovely *GothicVampireFreak

Thanks for looking.

Visit Craig's Sketchbook for more Vue renders, illustrations and sketches.

Excellent composition, and great pose work. This image must definitely be seen full size, that beast is awesome ! The Dof is really efficient, the dragon 'pops' litterally out of the screen !
