The great spikes are added to the Dragon's back. As you may have noticed from the preliminary sketch of the Dragon that hangs on the wall behind the work in progress, these spikes are different than what was originally drawn.

This is why I do not do very complex concept sketches before I begin work, as many times I enjoy the excitement of sculpting "on the fly" much more than following.
