Wow great detail in the scales and eyes this is great
I could see that embeveled on an emblem or metal work.
If only I had the skill to do that xD
You... did have the skill to do it digitally so I'd say it is a good start.
digitally? this is an acrylic painting on canvas XD
Then you are way closer to metal work than I expected. How did you make this pic then, took a photo and uploaded?
