Well done! Looks promising. 
As with adding scales, you're trying to add texture to the form.

Definitely an improvement! But the scales come across as cracks, like something's about to hatch. If that's not the intent, I'd say lighten the outlines on the scales a bit.

I'd say it looks more like a geode, there's a curvy tangent there that makes it look like the bumps are set into the stone rather than curving around the surface. Highlighted that in red here, and did a fixed up version reducing the intensity of the dark and tweaking some of the other colors to try and fix it!
