@vultraz: I like how that clockwork dragon is coming along. Can't wait to see it completed. Best of Luck on that... :D

I feel this needs some less neutral color touches to make it pop more, also the body could be angled up more (right now it looks like one wing is attached to a rib and the other to the shoulder)? If it is metal it needs more specular highlights/darker darks as well.

It looks really cool!
Maybe you might add more clockwork stuff like the gear in front, that looks nice and without it there is no clue it's clockwork. I'd also differentiate the color of his belly from the rest, that might add something to it.
Nice work, keep it up!

Well, in case Blarumyrran never finishes his paintover, I made my own take on his take on the clockwork dragon.

Haven't posted anything in awhile.

Have some Lampposts, coming soon to a UMC near you! (This week, in fact)

So why is the Thug hovering above the lamppost’s base?

The base of the post is lower down than the feet of most units.

These give a kinda creepy feeling of impending destruction (of the lamp posts) - nice!

In that case, the post should be in front of the units.

Alternatively you could shift the post base upwards a bit and use [terrain_graphics] instead of [item] if necessary.
