I am currently busy with this image in Krita:
How would one enhance the realism of the image?
Any feedback is welcome.

What is the goal for the image? If you only want to "make it more realistic" then you can google up some references of reptiles and photobash some textures in. If you want to draw and paint it more realistically, then still google up some references and paint textures from them.
But again, what's your goal for this image? Are you doing concept? Are you aiming for "final art"? Is this for animation? Is "realism" even needed here? Is realistic about having an environment? Is realistic about photorealism, textures and such?
Define your problem and you can find the solution according to those definitions.

The goal for the image is to be as photo-realistic without using photo-bashing. I am aiming to do everything by hand, so to google textures and lighting reference I think is the way to go :) I'd like the image to look like an old photo, so some parts will be in focus, other parts not, like faded over time or over-exposed.
I've got a cool idea, thanx for the reply :)
