Studied a bearded dragon this time! And the pose. Tried to see how I can easily break that down, and how those folds might behave or come from. Also tried to take a closer look at how the scales/spikes are formed.
The circle-placement worked really well, but isn't what I would have expected to work. They are just so much neck. Tbf, the head and the neck transition doesn't look really well in my sketch.
