Mr. Springy, the first creature I created with a lot of help from my daughter. He's quite bouncy and very friendly!

I was trying to make a dog, but I figured I would give him that "little bit extra". Surprisingly tails are really really hard to make. So he sort of has a puffy tail. So meet Spike, the "Bull Dog".

So after making two "friendly" creatures I thought I would make an evil one. And what could be more evil than a red dragon?

I have a feeling that I'm going to have fool around with the editor a bit more to perfect this design as I found a fair number of limitations when trying to make him. First, I couldn't make his body long enough to give him a nice long tail. Next, the selection of mouths didn't really lend themselves to making a "proper" dragon maw. And I "ran out" of pieces I could put on him, so he didn't quite have the details I wanted. And it seems to be nearly impossible to make arms which don't stick out like a sumo wrestler.

But the wings and the paint job came out nice. But I can see that they will need more ... a lot more ... creature pieces. (Hello expansion packs!)

This one sort of just made itself. I created a new creature and it made the default body really long and skinny. So I tested the limit of the creator to see just how long and skinny I could make him ... and surprisingly he came out really really long and skinny. Although a lot of what you see is actually a single leg made super long.

Then I just added a quick face and some wings as it looked just sad without "something" to make him stand out. And the paint job was totally random, but came out just fantastic. Easily my favorite paint job to date.

I have a feeling that this little guy going to be get killed quite a bit (but he did have good social skills!).
