Drawing of Mekkul by andrea-koupal Drawing of Mekkul by andrea-koupal
This was an attempt at creating a zoomorphic garter snake naga. His name is Mekkul.
I imagine he used to be a normal garter snake who lived for 100 years, and eventually achieved enlightenment, shed his skin, and changed into a new shape that was better suited for communicating to the humans in the interest of protecting his race.
Pencil with tinting added in Photoshop.

He looks so sweet and kind. ^^

Wow, this one is very cool....at first glance I thought maybe gecko, because of the pads at the ends of his fingers, they sort of remind me of the lizard suction cups, but once past that I definitely see the snake too!

I like how the snake markings remain on his body, and the belly scales are visible along his torso and even faintly showing up over his pec muscles, a nice way of melding the humanlike body with snake features. I think his nose might look better if it were more snakelike slit than humanlike nose, but I still think he's great. :)

Very interesting take on a naga. Though are there naga males? The eternal question about "fantasy" creatures... Nicely done. I like the hair. ^_^
