Dragon Dance [SFM] by argodaemon Dragon Dance [SFM] by argodaemon
Yup. (So was not expecting this to become as popular as it did.  Guess I should expand on this description a bit.)
---
I only did the animating on this; I take zero credit for the model work (see below).  Took about 3 hours start to finish to do the whole cycle.  It just started with the random idea of "I want to make a dragon dance".

The technicality behind whether this is a Dragon or a Wyvern I feel is a waste of time, especially considering it is still a giant lizard dancing.  I call it a Dragon. Gets the point across. :P

Animated in Source FilmMaker
GIF compiled in Adobe Photoshop CC
Dragon model is from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda)
Source Port of the model was downloaded from SFMBox, but that site has since went down, so I no longer know who ported them.

If you want to use this as a webcam, I have no problem with it. :P

I do mostly pony animations and such. While I would love you as a watcher, do know you will be seeing lots of pony. I am a dummy!

Well... If you told me earlier I'd see a dancing dragon today, I would have been very skeptical.

I am thinking about downloading Source Filmmaker and there are a couple of things I would like to know. Do you download the model of your choice and do whatever you want with them? Or are the models provided for you? And you can make them do whatever you want, right?

It is completely open and free to what you want to do.  As long as the model you want is converted to work on the Source Engine, SFM can utilize it.  The only restrictions you have are those put on the model itself (i.e. having bones to move what you want to move).
