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!

I find it a waste of time too, but I can confirm it's a dragon. How: It breathes fire. That's what sets dragons and wyverns apart to begin with.

I don't see any credit to where you grabbed the inspiration from, considering the dragon in Drakengard 3 that Zero has does the exact dance.

Amazing animation! The wings and the head move very realistically (considering the fact that it's a "giant lizard dancing" as you put it XDD) Just thought I'd say that if you were ever going to do something like this again consider making the toes move; the rest of it moves really well but the toes - not so much on the left foot but on the right it's very noticeable when he puts the foot back on the ground - they don't move at all. Obviously I'm just nit-picking; kudos to the person who made the model but your animation really adds life (and laughter to it). Really well done!! :heart:
