want to help make a dragon?

i'm slowly trying to make a chinese-parade style dragon that spits fire when you yell at it. I would love your help making its body parts...here are instructions and a few that have already been submitted. Here is a basic motion test using the tiles I have...

In the motion test, if you move it, then leave your mouse still (or out of the window), the dragon continues to move very slowy in a really disturbing, larva-like manner. I like it.

ooh! It's different every time! I hope mine shows up. I can't wait to sing and yell at the dragon and make it breathe fire!

It looks like the Hungry Little Caterpillar. <3

it has a nice fluidity to it but maybe if there was a way for it to slowly correct it's self when you bunch it up, that it would smooth out is own curves, it might give it a greater feeling of substance. Basically, in the space that it's in if you turn it back on its self to sharply the illusion of it being a continuous "snake" is lost as the tiles overlay at harsh angels. Maybe if it slowly corrected it's shape into smoother curves the model would have more life to it. I have no experience with what it takes to make something like that so darned if I know if its even possible or how to do it but those are my thoughts on the subject.
