Alright I added the scale texturing to them both, it was a very time consuming process XD Also changed the teeth with sculpted teeth as requested and did a few color modifications. The only thing I avoided was the gradient. At this point I did not feel comfortable risking more repaints since precise gradients are kinda tricky to make and I could not make it look good :O but I did the back of the wings dark as in the newer reference. Also the iridiscent quality was once again added this time extended to the wings as well :)09.04.2018
Finally painted after 3 repaints on BOTH of them, once due to being clumsy and getting the paint tainted with other shades, twice because of wrong shade and once because I didn't mix up enough and ran out before everything was colored XD gawd what was I doing?
Anyway, Nachtschwinge has the shimmering blue surface. It's not very noticable in the photos but it's there :D
