How to Train Your Dragon Texture Inspiration

My team and I were saying that we liked Kerry’s giraffe textures so I decided to ask her for some advice. I had something scaly in mind at this stage and she directed me towards looking at How to Train Your Dragon characters – especially the gronckle and thunderdrum dragons:

I especially like the shifts in hue and value across the gronckle’s skin and then across the raised scales (the purple and yellow one). I also really like the teeth of the thunderdrum (blue one) and their subtle texturing.The light catching the little raised areas on the thunderdrum’s skin is appealing too. Kerry also suggested that I try incorporating photo-texture into my custom textures which I had almost forgotten was an option!
