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!

Would it help if I told you wyverns are basically a breed of dragon? Many cultures have what they call a dragon and they were all different from the very stereotypical European. If it looks like a dragon, flies like a dragon, and breathes fire like a dragon, then it's a dragon. The number of limbs is inconsequential because many cultural dragons don't follow the six limb structure and stereotypes that pervades the European breed.  

If the word "dragon" was purely restricted to the European, then you'll have to explain to the Chinese (and the rest of Asia) that their dragon isn't a dragon either. I can tell you that won't go over so well. Chinese dragons break the European stereotypes by being wingless, serpentine, and benevolent. There's also the fun fact that before the word was coined in the 1800's, people were referring to dinosaurs as dragons whenever they found fossils of said dinosaurs.

Asian and other cultural dragons have their own uniqueness but they are still dragons. The term should never be limited to the traditional European (which is what I'm seeing here). The root of all dragons is the fact they're reptiles, just as the root of all dogs is the fact they descended from wolves. Every other trait is just each culture adding their own twist. Doesn't make them any less of a dragon than the traditional European which possesses the least realistic body structure of all the dragon types I know. 

I didn't care for wyverns much as a kid either but nowadays, five of my absolute favorite dragon characters are that breed. One of those five actually changes breeds depending on if you read the book he originally appeared in (he was imagined as a traditional) or see the film it was adapted into (where he was given the more realistic wyvern body structure).
