As a companion/follow up to this Titan comparison thread here: http://forum.schoolofdragons.com/content/titan-comparisonstudy-sodturob I've decided to create another one dedicating to compare and study Hybrids design in this two game as well as Miscellaneous such as Concept art and Merchendise as Me and a few other has noticed and point out some difference between them.

(Plus there're enough hybrids in sod to start the comparison anyway)

Like previous thread, this thread is created with the intention to compare and study so it wasn't meant to critic anything but a discussion about it is welcome here

So without further ado, the comparison will start in the second post!

Zapplejack(Titan

Zapplejack

(Titan uprising(Flying), Titan Uprising, Concept art, School of Dragons)

-The only major difference I see is the eyes/head porpotion in School of Dragons. In other media, the eyes are big and popping out of the skull while in School of dragons they're smaller and a little bit wider apart making their face somewhat thicker compare to the long thin shape the other have. Other details are pretty similar

-Neon2 Pointed out that the Wings in SOD version are smaller compare to other media and doesn't supported on the ground 

Galeslash

(Titan uprising, School of dragon, Concept art, Titan uprising(flying), Baby Titan uprising(regular), Merchendise, Baby Coprsekeep(to compare the color to merchendise), Baby school of dragons)

-The major difference being the sharpness of the beak and the eye placement in the School of dragon version, giving it more Nadder-like while the other face are more smash because of the eye placement. The concept art also have difference wing coloration.

Abomibumble

(Titan uprising(different animations), School of dragons promo art, School of dragons)

-Apart from some details like the eyes emotion, the two version are pretty accurate with each other. School of dragons' neck are noticably thinner though

Skrillknapper/Voltknapper

(Titan uprising promo art, Titan uprising, School of dragon promo render, Titan uprising (flying), school of dragons (different animation))

-For me the most noticable difference(other than the name difference) is that Titan uprising  version is very skinny, giving the big different in head/body porpotion. It's also very big (the flying animation shown to be bigger than the stormcutter) In school of dragons while different from normal Skrill, the body porpotion are closer to it. The eyes placement for both version are also marginally different as well as the color.

-The little details but there's also no purple Voltknapper in Titan uprising as purple seemed to be the default color in school of dragons

Ridgesnipper

(School of dragons promo, Titan uprising promo art, School of dragons, Titan uprising, School of dragons(flying))

-School of dragons Porpotion are more extreme, with bigger head and very small short tail club while in Titan uprising the over all body porpotion are slim, with even head/body porpotion. plus the bigger longer tail

-Another small thing that bug me is that SOD default color for this dragon is green while in TU it's red with blue spot. Perhaps it follows the promo art.

 

 

 

To be continue if school of dragons release more Hybrids

Awesome compatison! I overall prefer the TU designs, they look more realistic and better proportionate IMO, exept for the skrillknapper, that is the only case in which i prefer the SoD design, it looks, again, more realistic and better proportionate IMO.

Yep! <3
First of all, THANK YOU so much for sharing this comparison post of the Titans! I really didn't know this topic here on the forum!
 
Second, great topic too! I loved seeing the main differences! I usually still prefer SoD designs ... I play Titan Uprising too and I don't always fall in love with hybrids ... only when they enter SoD can I fall in love with them  XD

Yep...

I think if the wings were bigger and supported on the ground just like the Titan Uprising would have been a thousand times better ...

Honestly, I haven't notice

Honestly, I haven't notice the difference in their wing but that might be because I only see the flying render image in SOD version, Should I edit the post and add that as a difference?

Never fear, for Blobby's here!

Cool threads!  Looking over them, I realized how much I dislike the RoB graphics.  All of the dragons just look wrong.  Between SoD and TU, though, I guess both have some good ones.  Sometimes TU is just too subtle, while SoD can be too obvious.  I like your comparison ideas!

I forgot the Bonestormer! or

I forgot the Bonestormer!

or not exactly forgot forgot since it just got release but it's kinda hard to find proper SOD version reference, anyway:

Bonestormer

Titan Uprising (Normal, Twist, Ingame Flyings) Titan uprising Promotional Art, School of Dragons Promotional renders, School of Dragons in game (Normal, Flying, Rear, Twist) (*Taken from Youtube videos)

- Actually it's very faithful and I can barely fine any differences, the only thing and it might be only me is that in Titan uprising it looks slightly skinnier and long while SOD look marginally bulkier especially from behind, a little closer to Stormcutter propotion but it's barely noticable.

- The only other thing is in the behavoir/animation, Titan uprising twist their body sideway while School of Dragon twists upside down.

- The hero skin/defauly color for SOD is the three star version of TU as opposed to Zipplejack, Galeslash and Abomibumble 1-2 stars. But other promotional material and special skin also shown 1-2 and 4 stars (orange/yellow)

 

 

To be continue if school of dragons release more Hybrids

Apologize for dugging up this

Apologize for dugging up this old thing but it's just the nature of this thread with how the dragons are realease, better updating this thread than creating the new one everytime a dragon appears

Humbanger

 

Titan uprising promo art, School of dragons promo art, TU model, TU flying battle model, SOD model, Concept art

-There's not much to say about this hybrids, it's very faithful to the T, if there're any subtle difference, I couldn't see it

-Defult SOD color are from the 4 star dragons, curious

- Notable thing about this dragon is its animation. With how TU has no need of the walking animation it's interesting to see SOD adapt it the way it is. Not that there're any retcon with each other, it just made sense for a dragon with limbs like these

-Edit: Added Concept art

Hushbogle

Titan uprising model front and sideways, promo arts, profile arts, SOD front and side view, official renders, concept art

-At first glance they seems pretty similar but one thing I've noticed is SOD's Hushbogle is noticably bulkier and has less distinction between the head and the body. It's barely noticable up front but pretty noticable on the side view although the profile art of TU's Hushbogle is similar.

- Because of this TU looks a little lankier compare to SOD, expecially with the posture. TU is pretty clear on Snow wraith's Hunchback posture.

- On sideview TU's Hushbogle also seems to have shorter puggier face

Zipplewraith

- Overall both version are pretty faithful with one another, so much so that when put the png render together it's quite challenge to tell apart with only maybe the lighting give it away.

- Though this might be reaching but perhaps the different might lies with the wings. SOD version, while strutery and shaped similar to Snow wraith's wing, they are wider like Zippleback's. This however is hard to prove if it's there on TU version considering limited angle.
