A new creature in the works.
Update: My submission to a pixel challenge over at amazing new discovery Pixeljoint. You wouldn't think it at a glance, but a lot of work has been put in between that initial rough-up and the final version.
Update II: A light mod to accent the idea of fangs more. Final edit of my Pixeljoint submission.
Final final update. Horizontal patterns on the back scales to help the side-to-side animation movement.
