I refined the background image in Photoshop and adapted the mood ready for use in Adobe Dimension. I changed the time of day and added some more colour to the scene.

Inserted a prebuilt model from a 3d printing website and Modified it. I then applied a smart texture from Adobe Stock, I used a stone texture as it created interesting shapes and colour tones that helped create the illusion of dragon hide and scales.

I created a greyscale image and adjusted the values, I also started working on the fx side of things.
