And here is my recreation:
I really like this! I sort of stopped drawing at the end because the picture was blurred out, and I wasn't really sure how to end the drawing. I really like the scale details. I could've totally gone a different way, but I really wanted to pay attention to detail and draw each scale. The eye was probably the most fun to draw, and I really like how it turned. I also really like the shading. I've started to figure out that in art, it's mostly how you make it. Even if you're trying to copy or recreate a picture, it's really up to you to find your own way to draw it, it looks weird if it's exact. That's super comforting to me, cause I feel like I'm not messing up.
See you guys next time!
