It looks like you worked really hard on this -- great stuff! The detail in each individual scale is exquisite. Congrats on the DD. I see you have a lot of awesome work in your gallery -- glad I had a chance to stumble across it.
Interestingly enough, I just had a dream the night before last with two black snakes in it. Nothing scary. Even more, a slight sprain I had in my left thumb disappeared upon waking up. Love the detail in the mouth!
