I just saw that title, and "Half Pirate ... Half SNAKE?!?" -- I had to check this out.  :D

 

Cool convers-- oh, wait, I just did a Google search on that name, and that's the way the figure normally looks!  Heh!  I thought for sure this was a kit-bash.  Anyway, I love the colorful diamond-scale patterning, and also the splashy water-texture effects on the base.

Yes it is actually a Vanilla Mini from Freebooter, but she fits into my Lost World stories, I had to have her!

 

She is pretty big too, that's a 40mm base.

As for experience with painting reptiles, take a look at my Lost World Project.

 

I had reptiles and amphibians as pets in my youth and I love nature.

Looking at the real thing will provide inspiration.

I always say that Nature is the best painter.

Very true! I actually own a western hognose named Bacon. I'm thinking of getting some yuan-ti or similar and painting them up in his colours (he's an albino).

One of these?

 

Awesome pattern!

 

I'm painting loads of reptiles and dinosaurs in my Lost World Project.

Might steal this pattern for a snakeman!

What a cute little fellow!

 

I'm a slow painter, but I can see this pattern being used in my Snake Army!

It will show up!

      I also got the Layer Up! LTP kit back in December - Here is the first figure from that set  - the pirate. Once again, I followed the booklet, took pics, and then added a couple of touches. I really enjoyed painting him and he is seeing use on the table - although as a dessert nomad ranger rather than pirate! I'm still a very impatient user of layers though.... This figure also inspired me to buy some water effects to play with in the future...

      This past week, I painted Kassandra of the Blade from the Bones 3 Core Set.   A couple weeks ago, I found myself painting up a Disney Monopoly Snow White figure to command a unit of Dwarf Miners (Long story you can read about here: Princess Snow), and I was really struck by the simple but effective primary color scheme of Snow White's outfit.  I immediately decided I wanted to paint a Bones female fighter figure with the same palette.

       
           So, I pawed through my boxes of unpainted Bones, and fell upon Kassandra of the Blade as the most suitable of what I had.    The one thing I didn't like about her was the dual-wielding of swords.  So I decided to chop off her left hand and replace it before I started painting her.
            Then came the decision of what to replace it with.  I considered a shield for a while, then in looking through my box of Bones transplant donors I came across Sarah the Seeress, whose staff had gone to make my Highland Heroine into a Frostgrave Appentice, leaving her with just her left hand holding an orb of some sort. At first I thought, no, why would Snow White be holding a crystal ball; but then it hit me: paint it like an apple.      So it was an easy matter to cut off Kssandra's left hand at the wrist and glue on Sarah's hand with the orb.
       
       And here's the final result.  I'm really happy with how it turned out, and probably it's one of the best faces I've done to date.

      This is a little sideproject from my Lost World Project
      WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&
       
      I think it deserves it's own WIP.
      It will be covered in the Lost World as well, but there it will be interrupted by the other things I paint and build there.
       
      With courtesy to @malefactus , @Peithetairosand @Chris Palmer for inspiring me with their awesome terrainbuilding.
       
      It all started when I noticed my spare base from Kaladrax.
      Kaladrax was put on a crypt as can be seen here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77556-kaladrax-on-her-mausoleum-by-glitterwolf/
       
      At first it was just an idea, putting some jungle stuff on that.
      But then things kinda got out of hand a bit.
       
       
       







      And some fericious foam cutting
