@welshblue The last one looks very real.

 

Agreed. I just checked it against my dragon and it looks perfect! 🤣

There is only one colour for a dragon - RED 😉 flag-for-wales-1f3f4-e0067-e0062-e0077-e

 

 

wow.  Lucky you.   And there was me thinking dragons were  as elusive as  a straight answer in this thread 

 

You called?

 

In all seriousness, for the dragon in my sig I used a scale texture brush in Brush Factory, then played around with @MJW's height map plugins until I got something akin to what I wanted. However, this didn't result in quite as much scale detail as OP seems to need.

Been playing with this for 2 days.  (Darn you @welshblue!)

 

I have a hard time letting things go too...........🤪

 

So, I cheated and came up with this.  Simple shingle-fill with the paint bucket, some coloring, shading and Bulge.
