    Hello everyone,
    I'm still trying to figure out how everything works here. But this looks like tons of fun.

    I started working with 3d prints at school making this little dragon. (Based of work by my favorite artist Paul Kidby)
    I've since given away all the prints. But this is a render I did.

    Everyone seamed to really like them and I kept getting requests for different poses and themes.
    I wouldn't feel right about putting something like that up without permission though, but I'm gonna try to put this piece up.

    It's part of a two-piece sculpture I was working on. (The 3d model will look a bit different as I stuck this one to a piece of Iron.)

    ..anyway, any advice or critiques are very welcome.

    This has got to be the coolest hobby in the world:)

    Hey Thomas, just wishing you a belated welcome!

    The detail on your Iron Hand is pretty incredible. I'm guessing you used the 3D printer you have at school -- which material is that in?

    If you need any help finding your way around, lemme know. :)
