Looks very good Louie,
How do I get my own logo on it.....?

There are a few ways you can do this. Here are two:

1) If you have your logo as STL, then the easiest way is to use something like Meshmixer to combine your logo with the dragon. This tutorial explains what you need to do:

2) Another way is to use Inkscape and OpenSCAD (If your logo is still a drawing) You'll need to have it in .svg format(a vector file). You can then use Inkscape to export it as a DXF(to import to OpenSCAD) or use the OpenSCAD Inkscape extension:

You can then import the dragon, position the logo and use union();, exporting as an STL.

Hope this helps..

Hi
Thank you for awesome Dragon. It prints so well.
Do you have the same Dragon without the shield ?

Thanks again
Vaughan

Glad you like Roark and find him easy to print but removing the shield would take time which I can't spare at the moment.

The model's license allows derivations, so why not try to change it yourself? That way you'll get exactly what you want.

Thanks Loubie, I understand. I try and see if I be able to.
Thanks

Beautiful work as usual Louise! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you - glad you like him.

Very nice - really like it.

As someone getting into 3D printing, I need to be more aware of this competitions and such.
Are there any well known online publications to follow?

Going to largely depend on what you are looking for. Most competitions are run from the organizer's site - so you would would need to check directly - Pinshape usually has something going on for example. For magazines, I quite like Make and Disruptive but they cover a range of technologies. Your best best is joining one of the 3D printing groups (I belong to the main one on G+) lots of helpful people and often news is posted there too.
