Paint Scheme

Ok, I am getting ruffkin to make me a torso for my first suit then I think me, my wife,, and my best friend are going to start trying to get into making out own stuff cause we think it will be fun. Anyhow I was wondering what you gyus thought of a color scheme for my skin being that of a copperhead snake kinda. Ruffkin and I have been talking, since the suit is coming to me painted also cause I know nothing of that either, about what the color should be and this is the best I could come up with. Here are a couple of pics for the people that dont know what a copperhead looks like.

I decided to comeback and tell a little bit about why I chose this. I live in Louisianna and I wanted a skin color that reflected the bayou and things like that. I thought alligator but ruffkin is already doing one like that for himself I think so that wouldnt be cool. So any sugggestions would be great. Things that make you think Louisianna as far as colors and such to help me pick a color scheme. I mean I will make the final descision obvioulsy but I am always looking for inspiration.

Myself, I like the earth tones. Its your suit and nothing is wrong here. Whatever you decide to go with is the right choice. I like it.

I really like the idea of "regional" color schemes, mind you if I were do that I'd be painted all in white/blue cause winter's freekin COLD up here !! :D
I think you should go with it, originality is the way to go!!

Choose whatever you like the best. I have painted both my suits in non-traditional color schemes. But, I like being the oddball! :D

Check out the Canebrake Rattlesnake (Crotalus horridus atricaudatus). Little more rugged looking than a copperhead. Google search the latin sub-species (I believe that's the one for your area) and go to images. There are a lot of variations, but the Cane has always been my favorite of the vipers. Also, the corn snake (always reminds me of P2) has nice markings. And my favorite, which is not regional to you, is the gopher snake. The corn and gopher snakes aren't vipers but they have great markings. Can't wait to see your skin regardless of what you go with.

As far as reptiles, we have a 16 month old female Corn Snake and 3 Crested Geckos (amongst the zoo), one of which is over the top end of the scale in weight and length compared to what Crested Geckos are supposed to be, and my wife thinks he's still growing.

As far as a color/pattern for a Pred, I really like that Copperhead. I'm into earthtones. But like LB said, cornsnakes can have some crazy colors and patterns that would be cool too. In the end you have to go with what you like. :lol:

Our Cresteds get the Sandfire Crested Gecko Diet and occasionally crickets. :D

Here's Raptor, our Crested Gecko who tops the scale at 70 grams and is 9 inches long. He's a freaking monster. :lol:

YEah I like the canbrake rattlesnake. I dunno tho it really depends on ruffkin too. LOL if he thinks he can do it.

also a question since we are the subject of reptiles as pets... Do they love on you like a dog does? I mean wouldnt seem like it but I dunno I never had one. lol, Silly question I know but I had to ask.

Reptiles I currently have are
12+ feet of Albino green burmese python
2 slider turtles
1 Florida snapper

I've cut way back, I use to have over 30 at any given time LOL. Some I had were
savannah monitors
ornate nile monitor
nile monitor
dumerils monitor
crocodile monitor
iguanas
bearded dragons
albino burmese
red tail boa
amazon tree boa
anoles
and many more LOL

and to answer the question
Do they love on you like a dog does? I mean wouldnt seem like it but I dunno I never had one. lol, Silly question I know but I had to ask.
I had a 4+ feet savannah monitor that would show affaection(at least it seemed that way) he would come lay with me and on me, my niece would read to him and he would come up to the glass where she was and would just sit there and listen to her and seemed to like it. I think certain ones if you spend alot of time with them can become like a regular pet but you always have to remember that like anything else it can get stressed and bite or freak out.
