Hello! 

So, really this is me showing off my editing skills here but I am also gonna show you all how I did it.

For those of you wondering how I made this. No this is NOT a Gif from the expansion pack (this cut-scene never appears in the expansion and the dragon is my own).  I made this from scratch.

Ok so this is how you do it:

1. I first took a video of my dragon walking on GRASS into some shadows from an upwards angle. I used the Green in the grass as a green screen later on.

 

2. I glided down into Impossible island and got a 15 second video of my viking's idle animations and the fire burning in the Eurptadon's mouth

 

3. I overlayed the walking video onto the idle video and used chroma key in order to key rid of the grass underneath the dragon and make her appear to be walking on the walls

 

4. I used movement tracking to trace a path for the walking dragon to take

 

5. Here I encountered an issue. The walls were too small! My dragon could not complete even a full walking cycle before she ran out of space and began to walk on top of the Eurptadon's wings! Since the wing is quite clearly raised off from the back of the cliff, it looked really weird to see my dragon kinda leviataing over it.

 

6. So I got creative.

I took a screenshot of the exact same spot in the exact same posistion but just the upper-half of the Eurptadon and above the fire animation. Then I pulled it into MS Paint and coloured out every space underneath the wing on the right side green. Then I put the picture back into my video editing software and used Chroma Key again to edit out the green. The final effects results in the illusion of the dragon walking behind the wing and out the other side.

 

7. In reality, I just used multiple layers. The dragon is in the layer inbetweem the background animation and still screenshot. You can actually see the line where the screenshot meets the background video on the left side of Gif. I suppose I could have used Chroma Key again to get rid of it but I decided to keep it to show you how it was made.

 

8. I converted my video into a GIF and boom. Super awesome screenshot.

Sooo..... what's your point. Are you showing off your awesome editing skills? Or are you doing what the subject says, that is, flame whippers can walk on walls. Because uhh, I'm not understanding.

Nightwatch ate my subject

It's another color variation of the Deadly Nadder Armor, called the Diamond Nadder Armor. Have you been on SoD lately? It's in the store. I'm not sure if I should spend my gems on that or the Slitherwing.. but I really like this color variation.
