I think I saw a picture of something like this...somewhere, just can't remember where. Did you do a search for "snake" in this forum? Maybe a broader search on the internet?

the best way to achieve the look of snake skin, is to use a fish net stocking. That could be hard on the inside of a body but i am sure there is some way to put it there and then don't let it move! or it will ruin the whole effect. American chopper just built a bike with snake skin paint,
