Glass Dragon
Description: Well, first I must give my apologies for not uploading anything for a few months. It's been since September, and I've been swallowed by life, Vue, and photography. I hope to be uploading more often, but with life as it is, I can't tell.
About this image: This is an old wings model which I revived and stuck in a bryce scene. Glass doesn't really look like glass, as it has no TIR. Any about of TIR I added just made suspicious black spots appear on the image.
Lastly, it's Christmas Eve. Whatever your traditions may be, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Welcome back, LitiNico. This is a nice model and a very nice setup. The lighting is very good. As you say, the glass is a bit disappointing. If the glass won't work as expected, try to go for a "greasy" polished stone or lapis lazuli (blue).

Welcome LitoNico. I'm just voting now, instead of placing large comments. That is because I agree with Horo. Trying with new materials and experimenting is (at least partly) the essence of Bryce.

P.S. : I wonder if you could change the models paws/claws somehow. It'll be quite and impression later I think.

Horo, as per usual, has made all the sailient points - however I would add that if you are getting black spots on your TIR setting then you need to raise the TIR ray depth to something significant like 6 or even 12 - this will bring the render process to a grinding halt but it could also contribute to making the glass look more glassy. Also consider the refractive index, it may need to be raised a little heigher to get things looking right. Good work.
