Tips on making my creations look awesome

Unread postby Locksoli » Sun Oct 12, 2014 2:55 am

I see a lot of videos where people like rebecca1208 or others make this awesome dragon, and Mine is just here like this. Any tips on how to make something more awesome?

I recommend working on proportions and anatomy.
Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.
Or, should I say, especially the mods and hacks?

Agreed, though it's hard to research the anatomy of something you're creating, or something that comes in a wide variety of forms (e.g. Dragons, in this case).

I'm actually better at eastern dragons than wyverns and western ones.

Well that refines the criteria.

This in my opinion is the best advice to give... You can make a beautifully detailed creation that looks too skinny and about to fall over, and it just looks bad. Or, you can make a as-plain-as-can-be creature with a fully thought-out body, and it can look great.

Here's an example;

My best creatures are Kirins/Qilins. Dark injections allows me to make them herbivores, and good looking.
