Despite Swain being my main man, I've always been kind of iffy on the idea of dragon swain. Mainly just fearing the dragon skin would come off as generic, like something out of Oblivion from the Elder Scrolls. A bunch of red and black. Personally I love the toxic greens and the gold of Swain's basic color scheme, with Beatrice bringing a bit of black. It just seems like everyone and their mother would be demanding typical, generic red-black shenanigans for dragon swain or just straight up red dragon. Mattcom's version of the skin in the Swain - Dragon Master thread is exactly what I'm talking about, that's what I don't want to see. Sure, the shapes and design are cool, but the coloring is generic as all hell. All the other colored dragons in that thread are also red. Shyvana already fills the sort of typical dragon mantle as it is.
Dunno what your plans are for colors, but I like the ideas you have going with the line work. The membranous look to the lower section of the robe/skirt (the tasset? whatever you would call it,) is a pretty cool touch. Scales scattered throughout the armor and the transmogrification of his arms are pretty neat to. Is that a fin coming out of his back? Kinda seems odd though that the chest plate skull would have 2 eyes given Swain's whole six eye thing, but whatever. Regardless, all your stuff winds up looking **** good in the end, will look forward to seeing this completed.
