Claw - Dragon's Lair

Hi,

Saw the prizes and just had to take part in this challenge, although Im very much a learner so c&c is probably more important. At the moment Im torn between two ideas so any help in making up my mind is most welcome.



1 a volcanic lair with lots of steam and gas



2 A mountain range above the clouds, with three brave warriors trekking towards a mountain lair. any help most appreciated. Thanks

I think the second one looks cooler. More epic.

Hi,

Haven't had much time to get on with this challenge and when i came back to it i decided to totally re-do my idea,
( mainly to give myself a better chance of making the deadline.)
Im going for a more eastern style of dragon now, up in a waterfall.
