Great job for you're first texture! If i were you i would do a few more things before starting to animate.
One is that i think he'd look alot meaner with some more spikes or even ridges on his back. Although you might have been going for the "younger look".
Second i'd spend a little more time on the texture. It appears there is some stretching on the face, make sure you have alot of surface area for this part of the texture. Otherwise the closeups will just be dissapointing. Another thing on texture, and i don't know if this will help, but it seems that you're texture just doesn't seem to follow the model at all. Not that it looks bad, more that if you textured, for example, the belly with larger/smaller scales, different colors, things like that. Maybe his feet have pads??
The 3rd thing is he might look real mean with a tounge and some horns on that head of his.
If you'd like some inpiration, Download the SM dragon(found in the Tshirt comp thread). Hope this stuff helps.
