Contest Entry - Carpet Python Naga by Electrical-Socket Contest Entry - Carpet Python Naga by Electrical-Socket
Because I don't know the meaning of leaving adequate time before a deadline, I've been working on this picture for four hours straight today and probably three hours straight yesterday. Oops?

This is my entry for Christopher-Hart's fantasy creature competition! She's based roughly on a carpet python (her markings were crazy hard and baffling to draw, I don't have much practice with asymmetrical random patterns) and she's like...a huntress-mage. The staff is good for magic and for stabbing, because she is nothing if not practical and figures why have two weapons for magic and physical battle when you can have one?

Do you know what's fun to shade? Weird chitinous bug material is fun to shade. It's great.

All comments and critiques welcome, as usual!

Where's her snake half's underbelly?

Haha, consider it a little artistic license. I know on a realistic level she ought to have one but I was sort of rushing this out for a overly nearby deadline and skimped out on a few things I would have otherwise drawn. :L

Yeah. Not that there's really any requirement to draw an underbelly on a naga that's identical to a real snake's, anyway. I mean, if one was to be 'realistic' about it they'd probably only have belly on the end half of their tail. Seeing as the upper half spends most of its time off of the ground (at least in the way people typically depict nagas) and all it'd render having belly scales on the upper half pretty redundant.

True but then again a cobra can kinda stand up

Yes, but that's not how they typically move themselves along. They don't just crawl along on their butt ends with their heads in the air.
