Scales Tutorial

One of the suggestions I got from the journal -> Tutorial Suggestions?

I thought this was a good idea for a self study as well- I actually tried this one on one of the cubes but I failed and they turned into a bubble like texture ^^;

I'm quite happy with how this turned out in comparison, it can still use some improvement but it actually resembles scales XD

Hope it can be helpful for you guys as well ;D

I just have a hard time getting the colors right until my wife showed me how overlay works.

Thank you so much for making this! I’ve been wanting to branch out and try drawing new things (one of them being dragons!) and I’m so excited (and a little scared) to put my own take on scales!
