Well, would you give a dragon a cuddle? I hear their breath is none too sweet, and you don’t want to see what happens when they get mad… And yet, dragons do have a softer side, as Victoria6 has discovered.
What on earth am I talking about? DAZ Dragon 3, that’s what! I’ll tell you something else: when I saw this new release over my breakfast table there were no squeals of joy. Dragons… hmmmph. Even with all the cool effects, and the vendors have once again done some eye-catching work, the truth is I’m just not that into dragons.
Then I saw InaneGlory’s Dragon Dreams poses and my dragonphobic heart melted a little. A lot. Not since Sintel and her friend Scales has there been such a tender bond between woman and fire-breathing beast. While I don’t know that I’ll get the Dragon 3 today (there are other things higher up my want-or-need list), you can bet as soon as I do, these poses will go in the cart right there with it.
How about you? What has caught your eye from today’s new Dragon stuff? I’ll give you a summary of it all further down, first your daily at-a-glance guide to the current sales and promotions.

Note: Although there are 3 great freebies today (two of them by the incomparable Jack Tomalin), you will need the new DAZ Dragon3’s Ridged Plate Armor to be able to use Sarsa’s add-on textures featured in the Freebie Flashback. It’s worth picking them up even if you are not dragon-crazy, as you might get that armour at a later date.
New Today on DAZ3D: Tuesday 27th
- Countdown 2 Summer promotion releases: (click for promotion page in store)
- DAZ Dragon 3 is the headline release today. Buy it alone or packaged up as part of DAZ Dragon 3 Pro Bundle, which also includes:
- Poses: Cinematic Poses; Fantasy Poses; Dragon Trainer’s Toolbox (also features shape presets for a growing dragon)
- Morphs: DAZ Dragon3 Morphs
- Armour: Ridged Plate Armor; War Armor
- Saddles: Strap Saddle; Armored Chain Saddle
- DA Terrorsaur by Design Anvil. Transform your new dragon into a mighty T-Rex!
- DA Fire Drake by Design Anvil. Lots of options to create a fearsome and spiny red dragon worthy of legends.
- FlameZ III DF by Jepe. A special effects pack to have that fire-breathing look directly in your render. These look amazing and allow for all kinds of different fire and flame looks.
- Hellborn Dragon HD by DAZ3D. An alternative texture and morph for you new dragon, this one will make it a monster with molten lava for scales. Very cool, but you’ll have to see it for yourself!
- Spectral Dragon HD by DAZ3D. This texture and morph creates an ethereal and ghostly looking dragon. Still fierce, but also melancholy and a little spooky too.
- Dragon Dreams by InaneGlory. Stunning pose set that tells a ‘Beauty and the Beast) story of loyalty and affection. You’ll need Victoria6 for it to work flawlessly, but if you are happy to tweak the poses I imagine you could get good results with other Genesis 2 female characters. Best to ask the vendor if you want to be sure, though.
- Svelldreki The Snow Dragon by RawArt. A nice price for RawArt’s superb work. This is a morph and texture that will turn fire to ice and give your dragon a frosty look. Perfect paired with snow scenes.
- DA Dragon’s Gold by Design Anvil. A king’s ransom of treasure props for your dragon to guard, and a chained pole for the unlucky princess.
- Capsces Poses by Capsces Digital Ink. 25 poses mean you’ll never be stuck for a standing, flying, stalking or lying pose for your reptilian friend. Nice variety in this pack, which includes some classics along with clever new ideas.
Unsurprisingly, it’s all about the fire-breathing one today. And no, I don’t mean Victoria’s mother-in-law. 🙂
