So I did the Midgard Serpent. :3 (Hmm, giving it some thought, maybe this is because I'm missing the Lego Vikings ship that comes with the 'Serpent... ;_; I'm so close to having all of the pretty dragons~) Anyway, so yeah, that's the "earth" there in the center, and so on.

This is the first time that I've done key/step patterns, and these gave me a good amount of trouble. It seems kind of mish-mashy style-wise, but I still like it anyway. ^^

Well, the original deadline was the 28th (tomorrow), but it's been extended a bit, so I figured I could be lazy and wait an extra day to post it.
