Zemlya: Aspect of Earth
Zemlya dwells deep beneath the surface, using his whiskers and spines to detect vibrations in the earth. His long slender build helps him to navigate narrow tunnels, but his lithe build belies his strength and speed. he can crush a man with his muscular body and poison him with his lethal bite. Zemlya is the greatest of the land wyrms.
About this creation


I know, I know: after a long MOC blackout I come back with ANOTHER dragon? Rest assured, there are even more awesome things coming in the very near future. This is more of a precursor to their arrival. I wanted to make a dragon of a more Asian style and also to demonstrate the full potential of the articulation system that I developed for Smaug. This is admittedly not a super original MOC: Zemlya uses the feet from Nyeba, the body design from Smaug, tail components from both, and the head is built using very similar principles. This is more of an evolutionary design rather than a revolutionary design. There are three color schemes included here: Obsidian Black, Tones of Earth, and Traditional Eastern.

Very cool! Great dragon, very original with that body shape. I like all those barb-details, they give the dragon a very distinct look :-) Oh, personally i prefer the black version though the brown one looks nice too.

Quoting Erwin Schulz Wow! It looks true-to-life. The shape is very organic, lifelike... I really like it. Maybe your best wyrm up to now.
You forgot to like, Erwin! It's ok, I like the smiles, but the comments are more valuable. :)

Quoting Mihe Stonee awesome look! the only problem i think is that in real bricks the middle line isn't strong enough to hold the line you want to have... But awesome !
That is a good point, I think that all of my dragons have the particular problem. Oh well, that is what floral wire is for, right? ;)

I notice a clear development since Nyeba...both concerning number of parts used and certainly a lot more flexibility. Nice touch with the eyebrows and the spinal spikes along most of the body :)
