    After reviewing the lava baron example, i'm working on setting up the eye lids properly to resemble a nightfury's eyes will most definitely be replaced with a texture only version (current eyes are set up for 3d rendering to simulate corneal refraction)
    Also basing my geometry budget on the lava baron's as well (~60k tris) so i will be adding in more details like spikes, maybe teeth!

    note: having my thoughts about reworking the mesh again after looking at the movies.

    Is looking good.

    Quick idea for the teeth: how about making it a prop? Maybe even have a special bones inside of his upper and lower mouth to attach it to (the bones named such that you know which part of teeth to attach to it. That way you can have the toothless and the toothed variant, as there is also in the movies.

    hmmm, it is possible, or i could just export two different meshes, one with teeth and one without.

    yes, but with a prop you can switch without having to wait for the new model to load (so you can be "baring your fangs" on the fly

    Hm, it would prove problematic however, id need two separate props that bind to the muzzle and one that binds to the jaw.

    What I think he's trying to get to you at is the fact that the avatar you're making looks more like a humanoid Night Fury rather than the more quadrupedal official Night Fury design.

    Hey, it's been a few weeks since your last update. I was just wondering how things were going?

    Was refining the spikes this week, but today my computer's power supply died so i have to put a halt on things as the most recent project files aren't on other storage solutions.

    If this is a Nightfury from How to Train Your Dragon then why does it have the body of a human?

    The program is called 'FaceRig'. It's all about the face not the body. I'll be paying attention to Toothless' face.
