An image of my royal naga character, Phanindra, when he was just a little boy.
So here he is, coiled up in his own tail. Peekaboo!
The mix of green and gold scales denotes a royal, where he's from.
Blue scale-markings, by contrast, suggest a religious vocation - those who have them go to the temples to serve their goddess, the Mother of Serpents.
There are a lot of different markings and patterns, and they all have different meanings.
