Unfortunately no, for scales (obviously except the tail, I do NOT have a tail stick'n out my spinal cord) I used a picture of myself in my boxers... spare the both of us and not ask? :p
Update: Note --
The hands are designed to look like they are, they're sort-of bricks with cylindrical round things on them... its basically a glove.
The armor is also supposed to look blocky and edgy.
The checkerboard look will also go away when I start taking away polygons, though not entirely... trying to keep a machinish quality.
