Yo! So in my animation class, we have a month to complete a 30 second animation. I would like to do a Wyvern(2 legs, 2 wings) flying and landing on a mountain, then roaring and maybe breathing fire. Problem is, I don't have any design ideas for said wyvern. Does anyone have any ideas that I could use as inspiration for this design? Please post a picture below!

Wolf

 Art was done by Fireflash

Wolf is my in-game character. Her full name is 'Wolf and Star'. She takes on my own personality, which is quite similar to that of Lynx. During quests, Wolf loves to muck around and try to break the system by utilizing glitches- just for laughs, but she always produces reliable results. She is a fair Viking and she never uses glitches for her own personal gain. Some of my profile info will be listed below:.............

Characters:

 

 

 

 

Lynx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is bold and loud. She is like Luna Lovegood in the sense that she is rather... odd. Loud, shameless and weird. She is more animal-like than human. Lynx enjoys being flashy, showing off her skills. Once she sets her mind to something, she is naturally good at it. The problem is that she loses focus easy and doesn't like setting herself to standards. She craves adventure and can grow bored easily. She is particularly fast on her feet but has low stamina levels. She is strong and tall for her age. Lynx is stubborn and laid-back most of the time. She does not like to follow orders. Some of her skills include: being double jointed, the ability to be able to climb almost any surface, very good at mimicking animal sounds and is EXTREMELY good at sneaking around. However, there is a side to Lynx that she does not show very often. She is very lazy and selfish at times, mainly because she lacks compassion towards humankind, caring more about dragons and animals more so than humans. This tendency causes her to be merciless in the face of battle.

 

 

..............................Lyra

 .....................Art was done by Marg The Loony and Chameishida

Lyra is very sheltered and shy. She suppressed her emotion and looks down on those who do are emotional. Lyra can be rudely sarcastic at times and accidentally offend someone. Don't expect a public display of remorse. This does not mean she is feelingless though, she feels emotion, but, she is just very insecure about it. She does not like showing weakness or personal attachment, more insecurity, and less sociopathy. Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. Lyra is willing to do anything to ensure her well being, and the well being of her mother. Which could be a weakness. She values her self-preservation. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face, which sunburns easily and long hair.

 

 

 

Nyx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

One of Nyx's most defining traits is her brash and sarcastic attitude towards everything that breathes. She is the type of girl who does not have to do much to stand apart from the crowd. However, Nyx is no way an extrovert, the reason why she puts herself in social situations is purely one of two reasons, the first one being is that she wants to go people watching. Where she sits in some corner and watches people, how they react and their social cues. She just observes them, untangles their motives and finds their interests. The second reason is that she wants to show up the competition, along with being stubborn, Nyx is a show-off. The problem is, natural talent can only get you so far. Because of her years from people watching, she has become very keen on observations. Smarter than the average person, she is able to look at any given Viking and deduce a thing or two about them. Sort of like Sherlock Holmes but not nearly as skilled. With her great intelligence, comes social anxiety. Nyx buried this under layers of brashness but, this insecurity can be sorted out by the way she avoids social and emotional get-togethers. Due to her inability to express her social anxiety, Nyx finds herself at a lack of friends. She usually plays this off as her not wanting any friends but sometimes, when a dragon is your only friend, you can get lonely. The result, she makes a lot of enemies. Usually because of her showoff-ness and Brash attitude, and sarcasm. In reality, Nyx wants some friends, but she sees this as a weakness and as part of her insecurities which she buries deep inside of her and does not let anyone see. She's not edgy, she's just misguided.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aeryn Nyght

 Art was done by Tosilohi

Aeryn also has a sense of show-off-ness, an over-the-top, dramatic character. She takes any given situation, brandishes it with a flare of sarcasm and performs, drawing attention to herself all the while managing to act edgy or sweet, or however she wanted to be perceived. This need of hers to put on a show made her invaluable to the man while she was on his side. Like the theatre kid she should be, Aeryn has expertly crafted this skill of taking on different personas, and she isn't afraid to add in some cliche drama to her dialogue and actions. Constantly referencing pop-culture, Aeryn is interesting, but the tiring person to be around. The problem with her extroverted, boldness is that few get to witness the actual Aeryn, not one of her many characters. In a sense, it is quite similar to the multifaceted personality disorder, only, Aeryn recognizes her many personas. She chooses not to show anyone her true colors due to some insecurities. These different personalities are the shields she has put up for emotional protection. With Aeryn, you never know if her reactions are genuine or just part of the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gail Cyrek

 Art was done by Katarile

Gail is very softspoken. She does not like attracting much attention as people have a tendency to stare. She is very insecure about her face and does her best to conceal it. She gets very annoyed if someone asks about it. However, with this silence comes the ability to listen. She observes the world around her and is able to spot even the tiniest of details. This silent brilliance has made her a stellar judge of character. She reads body language very well and has a certain flare of stubbornness about her. Still, she is very dark. Generally, when she speaks, most people cannot hear what she says, which is probably a good thing because what she does say is usually pretty dark or gory. She often says random and slightly disturbing things and speaks extremely softly anyone can barely hear her. Gail seems to be pretty timid but is generally ruthless. She is a bit of a pyromaniac and will do almost anything to get her way.

I want to see the animation once it's finished :)

Um... Google Wyvern?

There is Lots of Wyvern designs out there. You could go with a httyd Wyvern, like the Deadly Nadder or Snow Wraith. Or are you wanting to design your own Wyvern to use? In that case, how complex of a Wyvern are you going for?

                                                          Hi, I'm Jade queen.

My dragons:

Screech the Deadly Nadder (adult) female.

Snapper the Whispering Death (adult) male.

Tremble the Whispering Death (adult) male.

Terrorfrill the Screaming Death (adult) male.

Razorrin the Razorwhip (adult) female.

Laluby the Death Song (adult) female.

Bolder the Gronckle (adult) male.

Zig and Zag the Zippleback (adult) male(males?)

Iceberg the Groncicle (adult) male.

Sheld the Armorwing (adult) male.

(Originally I was trying to name him "Shield" but I forgot the "i")

Tideline the Sand Wraith (adult) male.

Scorching Fang the Singetail (adult) male.

Rocky the Eruptadon (adult) male

Shimmer Sting the Speed Stinger (adult) female

Pyroite the Monstrous Nightmare (adult) male. (His name is a combination of "Pyro" meaning fire and "Pirite" also know as Fools Gold) 

Skrilla the Skrill (adult) female

 

The Doubles: One day I logged on to SOD and most of my dragons had glitched out of their stables. I then got three of the notices that you get when you earn/train a dragon in one of the expansions,they said I had gotten a Groncicle,a Deathsong and an Armorwing. I thought they were my original Deathsong,Groncicle and Armorwing that I had been re-given and so I named them the same names as my originals. I was upset because the original three dragons had disappeared and the new ones were not the same. My original Armorwing,Deathsong and Groncicle were still displayed in my dragon list,but I could not make them active. I eventually figured out how to make the original three active through stable quests and then I placed each of them in a stable and everything was back to normal... except for the three extra dragons that I had gotten. 

Doubles: 

Iceberg the Groncicle adult male 

Sheld the Armorwing adult male 

Laluby the Deathsong adult female (The only Double I like. I call her Limelight)

                                                                         

Eggs: 2 Gronckle, 1 Rumble Horn, 1 Groncicle, 1 Deadly Nadder, 1 Shockjaw, 1 Hobblegrunt/Threadtail, 1 Smothering Smokebreath, 1 Scaldron, 1 Mudraker. 

 

Clan:

My clan is called The Screech Dragons. I named it after my first dragon Screech the Deadly Nadder. 

                                                            We care for dragons 

                                                            We respect dragons

                                                              We love dragons!

                                                      We are THE SCREECH DRAGONS

Wears a feline grace mask (I was really going for a cat look). Occasionally I change her outfit around,but this is what she wears most of the time. 

Friend code: Pm me for it

I hardly ever really play the game anymore,mostly I just hang out on the forum.

Question, Is this for an

Question, Is this for an animation class or the 3d modeling class? If it's for animation class, then I highly suggested something with not so much detail, a simpler design. Something not a pain to rig or animated in general. If it's the animation class then they're going to care more about the weight, the movement, aniticipation and all that more than how the design turn out to be.

Usually it's those tiny flaps that k,ill the entire work if not animated right even if you get how rest of the body moved correctly. That's the reason why cartoons/ something that come out weekly or in short period of time stick with the simple character desgin.

Not the same thing but mostly the same principle, when I did 2d class, I animated dragon too and I choose to go with the one with the easiest design and even that I have to cut all the detail out to make it even simpler.

I don't mind if you try something similar to this design for class purpose.

 

Of course all that is for the sake of the easier/safe work, if you aiming in for the sake of experimental stuff or challenging yourself or just got a load of time or doesn't care about the score or think you can do it then eh you can try.  or maybe this all is actually for the 3d modeling class and if that's the case then go wild, you going to get good score with them fancy wyverns :)
