Reticulated Python by Culpeo-Fox Reticulated Python by Culpeo-Fox
Malayopython reticulatus.

World's longest snake with attitude - and one of my personal favourites. One of the very few who actually attempted to eat people - and even succeeded at that. Forget the Anaconda. Retics are the real OGs you should make horror movies about.

Woah, I love this snake series, so cool!

Here in Texas the problem is Burmese Brown Pythons.  Released in Florida by irresponsible owners, they are taking over and moving west.  Some are huge.  Florida has a bounty on them. I caught a six footer in Austin, rather far north for these guys.
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2019  Professional General Artist
Yes, i've heard about the problem (though, several owners who couldn't handle their pythons anymore weren't the only reason. Hurricane Andrew most likely is the real culprit to blame for the invasion, as one of the many things it destroyed also was a facility housing bred burmese pythons who then escaped in the process).
BillyDBunny Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2019  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I had no idea.  But for whatever reason, they have really taken to the swamps.  I mean, we got gators already, we don't need anything else in the reptile department.  I see your work all over Pinterest, I think you are quite the artist.  I'll be keeping an eye on you!  A real honor, best of luck.
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2019  Professional General Artist
Yes, i can understand that sentiment. I love snakes (obviously), but invasive species always are a problem, especially considering the local ecosystem. It's just what you have with Australia and feral foxes/rabbits, messing up everything.

Thank you so much for your kind words on my art!
BillyDBunny Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2019  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Not at all.  I am talking with an Australian here on DA right now about the invasive species thing.  He just rescued a snake necked turtle.  I could not believe my eyes when I looked that up.
The better the artist the more I learn.  I cannot steal from the untalented!

...und ich dachte gestern noch...wie schön wäre es, den Netzpython auf deiner Hauptseite zu sehen.

Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2018  Professional General Artist
:''') Eigentlich ein Skandal, dass das nicht schon viel früher passiert ist. Am liebsten würde ich ja auch noch Wanderfalke/Mamba auf die Frontpage packen. Und ein Papua-Teppichpython müsste ganz streng genommen auch noch mal längst her. Aaah.

I absolutely love reticulated pythons... and your artwork! I can't believe I only just stumbled upon your profile! I just started watching you, and I may eventually buy some prints of your snake art!

Thank you so much! I'm super glad you enjoy my stuff. :)

The only snake that has been recorded fighting a tiger and killing it (at the cost of its own life)

That snake was handicapped because it ate a pig earlier: imagine what one at full capacity could do.

At least they hardly ever eat people.

I thought this was a picture of a snake at first. 0.0 Really nice job! :D
Zgredos87 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Some also know much about snakes. Is this Boa constrictor? Or another python? No, some other color, and name of the reticulated. My mistake. I love snakes. Knew about this, because really interested in this. And still I like it.

Can you do Yellow rat snake?
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2017  Professional General Artist
Not for this time, as this series is all about snakes that occur in Thailand. :)
(Thailand has the Radiated Rat Snake, however, which is the baddest ratsnake in all land)

I might expand these portraits to snakes from other countries whenever i did all my Thai ones, as people already requested balls, anacondas and the sorts.

Love this type of background! You should do more of these. Snakes, foxes, dragons, etc would all look cool styled like this.

Wow! I love the combination of the snake scales and the tapestry design (if you can call it that). Really quite beautiful. :)

There is a famous pro wrestler that always carried snakes like that to the ring (one of them was a reticulated named Lucifer), Jake "The Snake" Roberts. Funny thing is, he actually hates snakes. However, he came up with the gimmick as a joke but Vince McMahon thought it was a wonderful idea and he was stuck with it. To this day he still hates them :D.

Wunderschön :-)
Der Königspython und die Regenbogenboa sind meine persönlichen Lieblinge. Vielleicht Stoff für ein nächstes Projekt ^^ ?
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2016  Professional General Artist
Vielen Dank!
Mit dem Königspython würde ich wahrscheinlich auch ziemlich "einschlagen" - ist ja immerhin der Schlangen-terraristik-Liebling schlechthin. :)

Die Regenbogenboa mag ich auch unheimlich gerne; die Reihe hier ist eigentlich durchweg thailändischen Schlangen gewidmet, aber ja, vielleicht mache ich auch nochmal einen special-ausflug mit Arten aus anderen Ländern (nach der grünen Anakonda wurde immerhin auch schon gefragt)
lordis-pyromite Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Gerne :-)
Ja das stimmt. Der Köpy ist so zusagen ein "Evergreen". Ah verstehe ;-). Finde ja dass dir der Übergang zwischen dem realistischen Bild der Schlange, hinüber zur traditionellen Tailändischen Kunst im Hintergrund gut gelungen ist. Da ich leider keine Ethnologie studiere kenne ich mich mit letzterer nicht so gut aus ;-) . Aber mein Tipp als Archäologin:  solltest du mal Lust auf den Königspython haben könntest du dich ja vielleicht von den Prähistorischen Afrikanischen Felszeichnungen inspirieren lassen. Passen glaub ich ganz gut zum "robusten" Aussehen des Köpys :-D

Wie auch immer ich liebe Schlangen und freue mich auf jedes weitere deiner schönen Bilder.

LG aus Hamburg

Mir schwebt ein Tempel mit solchen Glasfenstern (1:1-Umsetzung von diesen Bildern) vor.
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2016  Professional General Artist

(random: ich will ja in Thailand eh mal einen Fuchsschlangentempel erbauen. Einfach WEIL. Wenn schon der Künstler-Typ in Chiang Rai an seinem weißen Tempel rumbasteln darf und der andere Künstler-Typ der Welt seinen schwarzen Tempel mit dutzend Tierschädeln hinterlassen konnte, dann kann ich auch einen Tempel mit riesigen Fuchsstatuen aus Gold, Schwarzgoldlackkunst und Schlangenglasfenstern und Co. umsetzen. Irgendwann. Oder so. 8])
