Character Design: Fixing Noodle's Anatomy and colour

When I started drawing Doudle's body I figured out his anatomy did not work as well for that of a very fast swift dragon. So instead of just using reference from Chinese dragons I looked into an animal that could have a similar skeletal structure with him: the cheetah. It actually works now. With his long spine sturdy legs he is now ready for take off!

Correct Anatomy

Bleugh! Doesn't make any sense.
As for the colour I was scared at first to use very bright ones in case they clashed with Ada's more earthly, saturated colours. This is the colour I've got for now. I will work on it more, eventually.

Colour reference.
