I saw the dying roses and all I could see was the head of a dragon. I snapped a picture with my phone and wanted to bring the creature to life. The background colour and the shape of the head made me come back to the picture.
The thing that really made me think of this as a creature was the peddle that created the form of the mouth. I started with the teeth and as soon as they where in place it already felt like a creature. The teeth gave it a cartoony feeling so I decided to go with that for the rest, creating the nose, eye ans body with arms.
The first gif ended as soon as the creature emerged from the flowers. Something was still missing. I quickly added some fire and that gave it all the life I was willing to give this project.
