So this is first step towards an illustration with showing a recon squad including a dragon with a scout rider on top.
The rider has recon equipment like binoculars, maps, cameras, etc.
Some of the equipment might be mounted on the dragon somehow.
The pose is showing the dragon noticing something interesting on the ground, it is pointing and the rider is looking with his piratelike binoculars.
So here is the first step:
starting the modeling of the dragon.
C&C are welcome of course.
