Piece together YOUR dream skyscale... to help A-net se what we find attractive in a dragon skin. Here is my dream skyscale:
- Head: Medium triangular, rather big, expressive eyes (not as light as the shimmerwings and not as heavy/klunky as the default skyscales).
- Body: Medium, like Aurenes or the Axejaws (Default skyscale is too heavy ans shimmerwings too thin).
- Wings: Three fingered, like Aurenes and webbed, like Aurenes or any skyscale except for the shimmerwing.
- Spikes/fins: Spikes along the spine with web in between, similar to a fish back fin or to what we ser in the shimmerwings front legs. Also spikes/fins at the base of the tail that are stiff in flight (not like a flopping skirt like in the shimmerwing), and a spikes/fin at the tip of the tail like the shimmerwing has. Also at the jawline, like the shimmerwing has. Also on the front legs, like the shimmerwing has. The tail fins should be folded when the skyscale stands still (not when stretching).
- Colors: Oily/shimmering. The dyes of the scales/main body Schould behave similar as the shimmerwings wings. When you apply a dye, it could shimmering in either warm or cold colours depending on the warmt of the chosen dye. White could shimmer in Glints colours for example, Black like a magpie shimmers in blue and green.... and so on. The dye channels should be 1, main body, 2, chest, 3, spikes +horns and 4, fins. At night there should be a glow/bioluminescense that Aurenes has to the throat, chest, side of the neck and tail, and a little bit on the bony parts of the wings.
- Horns: Not too heavy, and pointing bakc/upwards.
- Fire: either like the shimmerwings or Aurenes.
- Animations: A stretch that is like the Griffons but with a jawn and the wings being riset upwards an extended as the skyscale does the final part of the Griffons stretch. A feeding animation could be that the skyscale snatches a sanke that comes up from a hole in the ground.
- Footfals: Like the shimmerwings!
The impression of this creature should be exotic and muscular, yet slender/agile. It will give the impression of being able to dive inte the sea to catch food and agile in flight.
THIS is my dream skyscale!
How is yours?
