Exeunt Omnes, pursued by Wyrm

Will he make it? The future of Kaliphlin may depend upon it.
The sand, the sand. Our blessing and our curse. It is a tradition in Kaliphlin that we all break our heads on sand dunes in free builds. This is my monochromatic essay on that topic. Does the world really need another Sand Wyrm, after BrickMaestro's excellent portrait? Maybe not, that was definitive; but there are several varietals in our desert seas, and it is wise to be acquainted with the main ones. This is one of the blood-and-whites.
A few techiques I was trying out here. After Daniel Marches, I wanted to experiement further on the diagonal. The wyrm is on the diagonal and also tilted skywards, fixed at one end and resting on bricks at the other. In the great Dune tradition, this is actually a triangular Wyrm core, held together (on a good day) with Travis bricks and tilting bricks. I quite like it, and this may have an afterlife as a tower. I have never really gone in for Black Fantasy, but my 2 year old tells me that this is "too scary", so I consider it mission accomplished. I wanted to add at least one point of articulation to the Wyrm, but I couldn't find a way to do it without sacrificing the integrity of the cylinder, any tips are welcome.

And the Wyrm itself looks quite fearsome, the tentacles in the middle of it's mouth are a nice touch.
Keep up the good work
