Pretty good work, the scales are alright, but it could use a bit of shading on the ends of the scales.
I agree now that you point it out. What I'm really trying to do here is keep me sketching/drawing on a nearly daily basis. When I sink too much time into perfecting a piece, I just keep digging at more and more things that turn out to bug me, so I'm trying to just get out something quick and readable. I figure, at some point, I might do a full illustration of one of my favorites in this series- but those can take a week, and leave feeling burnt (I'm also trying to develop a style which is faster but still pleasing to the eye).
All that said, I really appreciate your regular feedback- it's very nice, and I look forward to seeing it each new post I do! (Adding at least SOME scale work was actually in response to your last feedback to work on texture!)
