Naga Fishing Lessons by Demireius Naga Fishing Lessons by Demireius
First - sorry for how dark it is! Considering the Vyle naga are a blind species dwelling underground, I felt a darker image was more fitting than the clear, bright one I did my work on. They don't really have lights down there, you know. 100% pitch black.

Mkay, so this took me a long time. It could have taken longer if i'd decided to hand-draw individual scales, but considering this isn't all that important I decided to spare my hand 8+ hours of cramping with those dang scales.

A mother naga has taken her three children to the cave pools to teach them to fish. How does a blind naga fish, you ask? Very patiently and by feeling the water's vibrations with the tip of her tail. It's tough to learn, but once you get the hang of it it's easy.
But of course, there's a problem. Her children aren't all that interested in learning today! One found a rat (much tastier for them than fish are), the youngest is too busy climbing on her, and the other is kinda scared of the water. What if he fell in?!

Their colorations are fun to figure out. Crosses even in the same breeding pair can make all sorts of differently colored kids, though it tends to follow that blues-whites-grays-blacks-browns-tans sort of scheme for this species.

Ah thats a great piece. 
I really like it! Well the boy is right, got to hold on so he doesn't fall in. Wouldn't want that to happen!

Thanks! Yeah, it would stink to fall in, but at least naga tend to be good swimmers even from a young age (so he'd probably end up alright). Doesn't mean it isn't scary or dangerous though - it can be.
