So yeah, another resource question today. I want to change the texture of the enderdragon so it matches my enderman. But what file do I have to create?

Why the downvotes? I couldn't find anything on the web, and this may be read, with its answer, in a Google search and may actually help somebody! Couldn't that deserve something better than 2 downvotes? – Anonymous Pi Oct 7 '13 at 18:26

The answer for all questions about where textures are located is to look inside the jarfile and browse through the assets folder.

Ender dragon textures are (along with all creatures) in the entity texture folder, inside a folder named enderdragon.

But: How do I name the file? I tried ender.png and enderdragon.png, but it didn't work... – Anonymous Pi Oct 7 '13 at 18:37
@AnonymousPi It has multiple images. Did you look inside the jar to see? – SevenSidedDie Oct 7 '13 at 18:43
Searched in mob folder... – Anonymous Pi Oct 7 '13 at 18:45
Referring back to the second sentence in the answer: minecraft.jar/assets/textures/ gives you the master model for everything in your texturepack. There's an entity/dragon/ folder, inside which there are multiple images. – SevenSidedDie Oct 7 '13 at 18:50
