    I'd add the side spine thingies. That would make it look more real IMO. Good work!

    Some impressive skills you have there. I want one!!!
    The extra spine things aren't necessary in my opinion, I think it looks really good as is.

    That is awesome. I would go with the side spine things, or at least do it to compare.
    Now it is a bit like a dragon back. Maybe the side spine things make a to busy design, but atleast you would know.

    Thanks guys and possibly gals I think I'm I'm going with pedicles on in the mean time here some WIPs



    So this the left side of CGS, And I totally going vintage on this side. I've marked roughly where I want my areas to be set up on the side of the castle on paper and reassembled the box area, after I added clay to the front and back of CGSthat is you can see that even some of the walls are only half roughed up and just have marks in the clay till I made larger boxes of clay and a cylindrical tube and some tops and that gets me to this point



    every detail you see in these pictures was designed by what you see here thats right a pin and 2 razors also a ruler for straight lines
    So I really encourage every body who sees this to try something like this on their own. I did take art in school yes but thats it I'm not a pro artist I just take reference photos and work from there. "sculpt something yourself. IT'S FUN!!!!"



    This last one is where I'm at right now as of writing this So I'm playing with the idea of putting another top piece along the wall( again dont know what they are called)but it might mess with my casts of this. I'm also putting some shrinking disk type things under the tower thing. The front IS done BUT i'm not showing that yet as there is a piece I'm not happy with and will fix it after the right side is finished

    this is great, and you are right it's FUN to sculpt. I am almost done my Brown hornet statue, I'm pretty happy with it, I wish I had more room though, I want to go nuts!!
