omg wow, how have I NOT seen this before?? I thought you whelp stuff was good holy crap!!! I LOVE the scale detail on this, and just everything in general! The composition, the lighting, the texture, the background is all amazing! I need to work a lot more on perspective and backgrounds, I always struggle with that. You are really amazing!
You did a very amazing job on making it look serpentine. People usually only ether get the muscles right or the scales but this is the first one on DA I've seen them both mark the spot, added with movement to boot! Wonderful.
