I really love the way you have captured the light falling from the top right down onto the serpent. Along with the detail you have focused on adding, it makes the serpent look very much alive. I really love the way you have taken care with even the minor details like the bubbles floating upwards, it adds that much more realism to this fantasy creature. I really like the way you have faded the tail according to how far and deep underwater it is :) seriously i dont think there is anything i can say where you can improve. you really do seem to have a good capability to add detail and focus on the physics of things in your work.
What do you think?

I like it, but I'm not the biggest fan of the exterior ribs.  I am not really sure what size it is supposed to be.  In my mind I can see it as either large or small.

cool creature, you should check out the Lagiacrus from the video game "Monster Hunter Tri (3)"
O_o im not lying, when i was on a field trip last semester in april or may, i was bored one night so i was just drawing stuff on a bit of scrap paper and one of the creatures i drew was a Xenomorph eel/fish thing and it look just like this :D nonetheless, awesome drawing and really like the colours!

Holy crap man, you just keep surprising me when you step beyond your usual range. And you did this in four hours!? That's amazing.

You're a great artist, you should really try to achieve some greater variety in your work.
