Beautiful Pit Viper by Culpeo-Fox Beautiful Pit Viper by Culpeo-Fox
งูหางแฮ่มใต้.
Cryptelytrops venustus.

Sometimes also listed as Trimeresurus venustus (because the Asian Pit Viper complex/taxonomy is a mess).
A tiny little viper that pretty much lives up to its latin name ("venustus" translates to beautiful, charming or lovely and both the German and English common names for this serpent follow this meaning). This species is endemic to Thailand, being reported only from the very Southern provinces in Nakhon Si Thammarat, Krabi and Surat Thani. Sadly, only very little is known about this quite venomous snake and people are still debating over it's species/status; in many older publications, it is still listed as C. kanburiensis, another Asian Pit Viper which is pretty similar in looks, yet thought to be a different species.


Vipers are the definition of badassery, i need more vipers in my gallery.

How do you color these? Do you use drawing software? They are absolutely amazing! I am trying to become a herptologist so I can research and study snakes and I love these!

Herpetologist/Zoologist - that was once my dream as well. Still is.

It's all Photoshop magic. :)

while this one is very pretty with the colours and I like it's looking at the viewer

Das nimmt ja kein Ende! (was mir ganz recht kommt ^^)
Wunderschöne Umsetzung! Mir gefällt besonders, dass der Kopf so leicht angewinkelt ist und zum Betrachter guckt - parat zum Beissen x3

Das tolle an Vipern ist, dass die einfach Charakterfressen haben. Da lohnt sich dann so ein angewinkelter Dreiviertel-View halt auch mal. 8D

Yes indeed. It's truly a beautiful snake. Oh man those details on scales, the traditional drawing that blend in a harmonious way on snake body makes it a true Masterpiece like all your Thailand snake Artwork collection. Keep the amazing work up!

Thank you so much! All those individual scales are taking quite long, but they still are some of my favourite parts in the whole process.

You are welcome. I love drawing scales and i find it quite relaxing but i am still new to drawing them, manually. They are the most relaxing and tricky part of drawing a snake.
