For the weekly challenge "WIP Stages".
When I first knew we could spin the template, well, I did spin it several times, until the main reference I used for the concept, The Dragon God from Chrono Cross, came to my mind. It's not exactly it, as I said, the reference glimpsed.
As I knew we could also add a background, by the pose of this flying creature, I imagined it diving for an underwater hunt, much more interesting than a clear sky or an usual stormy one.
I gotta develop the creature's concept more, like its size (I imagine it with a short whale size), its habitat, and so on (:
The final version has 25 colors, but the entire animation over 60.
