Finally finished the tiny tail scales! My hands!
As I mentioned in the shenanigans comic (where this image first appeared), the pink was so glossy that I had to switch to the gloss map to finish up the tail as it was in a bit of an awkward spot in the light and using the uniform lighting made it too glossy and the pbr lighting couldn't pick up the glossiness because the mesh was in the way.
White is no gloss, not-white will have some degree of gloss depending on how black it is.
It's coming up looking pretty nice.
