Philippine Mythology - Bakunawa Picture

Alrighty so here is the finished product of the Philippine myth, Bakunawa.

I will say first that I ran out of time to make this a lineless painting before it was due for class but I'd love to continue with it once I have some free time ^^

Okay, so Bakunawa is supposed to be a type of dragon, many stories say a sea dragon so that is what I decided to go with here. It is said that Bakunawa causes the eclipse of the moon by leaping up and eating it, hence the name Moon Eater. The towns people are said to have gone outside and beat on pots and pans to frighten this dragon into spitting it out, but since the moon fascinates Bakunawa so much, he continues to leap up and eat it =3
