Dragon Skull Paintovers

in art •  last year

Earlier this year my husband, Lynton Levengood, did 3 dragon skull sculpts in Zbrush. Since then he has been doing paintovers to show what the dragons would have looked like alive.

You can see more of his work over on Artstation
The comments are from his Instagram at LyntonLevengood


"The third and final skull 💀,Thuban! It's #Friday! And that means it's the end of the working week (for some). It's a great time to stop and reflect on whether you've spent enough time designing dragon skulls. It's something we all wrestle with and I want you to know, your not alone. Chances are there is someone within 500 meters of you, in another house or stuck in traffic. So be encouraged, and it's Friday."

Here is a video of the paintover process sped up. If you're not into heavy metal I would suggestplaying it with the sound off :)


" The completed second skull 💀, Rastaban. The most important thing to do when sculpting dragon skulls in Zbrush is to not add eyes, flesh or skin. If you do that you will have in fact sculpted a regular dragons head 🐲 and not only it's skull 💀. It's a very common error. To avoid it I find it helpful to aim for dragon head but do less than required. "

Thanks Rod!


Nice to see you get rewarded for this work. Awesome.


Yes, I was so shocked and excited when I opened Steemit this morning to see the awesome response to his work! I'm looking at making a second account now that will become my account and then Moderndragon will be for all things relating to our website and his art. That way people looking for dragons won't have to look through photos of my cats and garden :)

Cool! Like those figures. :)


Thanks so much!

Right in the basket of this dragonlover. Great job, I love it!

That so awesome, I am into this kind of work big time! I'm following!


Awesome! Thanks for the follow!

Wow! really stunning designs. what is your inspiration? films? tv shows or any illustrator in particular?


Thank you!
I am a huge fan of Smaug, the GoT dragons and generally anything to do with dinosaurs.
The artist John Howe has been a big influence in my drawing style and James Gurney my inspiration for color and light use.
The sculpting I have learnt along the way and I am always expanding the visual library in my head by using reference when I draw something new. That way I learn what something looks like so that I can draw from memory the next time.
