Imoor the dragon
About this creation

When it comes to creatures of fantasy Ive dreamt of creating my first dragon for several years. My hesitation was a result of lacking the necessary skills and level of imagination. As a first step as with the most of my latest projects this one comes to life as a digital design. The main design was created in only 4 days time, some kind of a record for me! As you may notice Ive included the outline of the bricks to show a more true to reallife look of the creation. This is obviously my first attempt at creating something like this and every comment you make is even more welcome this time around! Give it a moment and take a close look!



Imoor consists of 1545 parts.



Making a black dragon was not a hard choice as it is my favourite color.



The neck design with twin locking hinges in between every section.



The head would influence the rest of the dragon.



The wings are really intricate, lots of trial and error to get it all together.



Imoor is a quadrupedal dragon. Its the first time I use bionicle claws.



Overview shot of the muscular spiky back...real proud of the clean result.



Imoor is 90 cm in length.



The end of the tail looks sharp and deadly doesnt it?



Flight mode!



I think he looks like a true king of the skies...what do you think?



The final picture of Imoor concludes this presentation!


I certainly hope that someone likes this creation as this is my first take on fantasy!

Awesome dragon! (even if it is LDD) I love the design though the head is a little strange. Very clean and the realism and flexibility is great. Check out mine http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/349408

Quoting Clever Crowe Such a dark and beautiful design. The patience this must take (even as an LDD) must be monumental. Love it! Cheers!
Thanks a bunch! Actually its one of my quicker LDD builds Ive done so far, but fiddling with the details takes the longest time.

Quoting Jacob Manahan Really well done! I just built my first dragon for a castle/fantasy moc, but it's dwarfed compared to the size of this thing!
Yeah, but its cool when can use it in a diorama.

Quoting Mihe Stonee i don't know what is always happening to my comments i leave... i know i commented on this! But whatever....the only thing i'm always scared about LDD-builts is - would this really hold together??? I did also some LDD-builts (only showed 1), but after my "big Betty", which unfortunatly failed... I know not everything you could built is strong enough... but hey - this is awesome looking! especially the last pic! - it's great!
There is always a difference between the virtual and real world, its unavoidable, but you learn to deal with it through trial and error. All of my recent and future builds starts their life in LDD. Its very important to never stop improving your design. With that frame of mind you eliminate much of the real world variables that may make it impossible to complete the build. But still, a combination of freehand innovation and virtual design will always be the combo that makes your creation work in the end.

Fantastic it is so intricate! One thing that comes to mind is the wings. I am almost sure that they are so heavy that in real life you won't be able to have them without standing in the floor. It's actually just a guess as I don't know how strong are your connections but you have quite some parts there.

Quoting Daniel Brilliant Thanks a bunch for responding. I think that is cool that our turned out to be very similar in size. I have a feeling that as I was building Smaug that the scaling from Imoor was subconsciously guiding my proportions. As for Imoor, the things that I like the most are the fluid shape and the coloring. The use of modular segments in the neck and tail was inspired. I also like the styling at the end of the tail. (which is a much trickier part than is obvious at first) I really like your legs as is, even without the use of bionical parts. I'm curious to see how you will build those in the final version. Thanks for the invite to your group, I'll be keeping an eye out there for updates on your dragon.
The next update on Imoor will be the real build itself!

Impressive dragon! I wonder why I haven't commented on him yet. BTW, Thank you for the tip, Dave! (I think my Smaug really needs a better neck and better horns)

Quoting Sebeus I Very nice, I know exactly what you mean, making a good dragon is not easy, I've been wanting to make one for a very long time now and the last one I made still doesn't satisfy. It's an art :P Those wings look very good, I wonder if they'll work out when you build it for real, great job so far.
We are pretty much the same type of builders then...even after posting you find many things to improve. The pics shown here are already getting out of date compared with the current state Imoor is in now :P I really want to see a new dragon from you...Im sure I can learn from your techniques as well :) Yeah the wings are still a big questionmark...its not until you hold the parts in your hands that you know what works and what needs modding. Im still sure to succeed. No time to waste, Ill just keep doing things better!

I agree on the forelegs...thanks for the advice!

Quoting Daniel Mayhew Oh man, I've been struggling trying to come up with a head design I like. This is incredible. Excellent work. Can't wait to see the real thing.
I can assure that you are in good company...the head took many hours of trials to figure out :)

Quoting Michael Rutherford Very cool dragon. I like the notion that you use the digital format for development and experimentation. Does this mean that we may eventually see a brick built version of this thing? I hope so. It rocks. Attack!
Yeah, actually the neck and tail needs to be modded but all in all its finished. It will be posted as the real build during or right after the coming summer!

Thanks Chris! Yeah maybe I do a full-size poster of the dragon when its built in real bricks. The resolution of the existing pics are a bit to low for that right now ;)

Quoting Thomas Beyl super cool digital design I will say thogh I do not think the neck hinges will support the weight of the neck and head. hope you get to try this one in bricks
Although Im almost satisfied this creation is still evolving...Im aware of a number of things to modify before the real thing but thats the hole idea with digital tryouts :)
