“Behold, I send you forth as the sheep amidst wolves; so be wise as the serpent and innocent as the doves”
Matthew 10:16

Ink notes:

I experimented with using traditional bold lines, to match the feel of the existing Dove done by another artist.

But I just cant get myself to depart from subtlety! I also thought it was smooth texture of the snakes actual skin would be nicer than the heavy lines and delineated scales you’ll see in tradish or neo-traditional snakes at this scale; and lend itself better to showing off the rare “Panda-pied” python pedigree.

And came out awesomely 🙂
