With small details like scales, less is more!
start off with your sketch, and then paint some simple shading
Then paint in the scales on top by like dabbing on highlights in a scale pattern
and just keep going until it’s shaded to your liking
There’s no point drawing like a million scales everywhere in the shadows and the highlights and individually painting them in full detail - it makes it confusing and not very nice to look at, and leaves you super exhausted!!
Instead, just give the suggestion of scales and your eyes will do the rest.
