Started drawing a Chinese-style dragon head, then it became a snake? I don't know how I ended up there. Side effect of too much Python programming?
My ink brush lines are getting better, though I really do wonder if the uneven thickness is more due to the paper than a lack of skill on my part. Many of those lines were continuous with more or less constant speed. The ink just pools so fast on the slightest contact. I should be able to draw thinner lines. Resorted to using fineliners for the mane.
