Hmm, I think it'd look better with a thicker neck and a more defined lower jaw. Also, it's weird to me that his neck can bend top to bottom in 2 places, even snakes only bend their necks from left to right not top to bottom. It'd be fine if the 2nd bend was much farther back though. I hope you can understand what I'm talking about, it's kind of hard to explain.

I'm not sure how to even critique something like this, but what Ambiguity says makes a lot of sense. XD I suppose if I had to say something, it's that I'm a little confused whether you're going more for a serpentine look or a dragon look. The detail is fantastic. I wish I had that kind of patience.

I thinking the design I up to you, and it looks pretty darn good to me... There's just one thing! You've made it look like it's moving at a considerable speed with that blurring effect, but The face looks static... I would frown it's eyes a little and maybe put a bit of wind movement on the lips, with some saliva flying back... Seems nasty I know :lol: but I thing it would convey moment a lot better. But it's awesome just like it is.

I thought as much, but even images I've seen of those don't bend the neck in that way.
Spoiler: show

Notice how the second bends come in at the chest area instead of having two in the neck?
