Hopefully this will come off more like the Black Beast of ARRGH, and not like Kermit the Frog.

I had originally planned on trying to do something based off of the intro animations to the TV show, but couldn't quite find the right props. In my quest for props, however, I ran across this toy that I think is from a happy meal from "How to Train Your Dragon". It looked reasonably similar to the Black Beast, so I added a plethora of googly eyes and scattered pieces of a dinosaur skeleton around it.

Not expecting too much out of this one, but I've sometimes been surprised.

Post-challenge notes:
Well, I didn't expect much and I wasn't surprised. Can't complain about where this one ended up. I was trying to approximate the look of the animation, but it didn't quite come off that way.

On second viewing this gets even better! A toy seems a good standin for a cartoon and the little skeletons are perfect props. I just love all those eyeballs LOL!

What an awesomely creepy set up. Are those chicken claws? And what is that grubby thing in the front. And those eyes. Can't figure it out 'cause, you know, I'm running away.
