Zora: Necklace

 Shading, highlighting, and the gem on Zora's necklace. Also did some shading on her hairpiece. She's getting there, slowly but surely.

Zora: Jewelry Shade & Highlight

 Normally if I can paint on the weekend I like to work on big projects, but Zora has entered the 'almost done' phase where probably I'm going to work on her exclusively until she's finished. To that end, today I worked on her jewelry - the buckle at her shoulder, the hair band in the back, and the back part of her belt (the chain). I shaded and highlighted those pieces, so they are done apart from any touch-up or tweaking I decide to do.

Zora: Jewelry

I painted the tie on the shoulder of Zora's tunic, and base coated all the jewelry. Probably I'm going to finish the jewelry piece by piece from here on.

Zora: Tunic Highlights

 Got highlights on Zora's tunic today. There's a couple spots I need to fix.

Zora: Tunic Shading 2

 Added a couple more layers of shadow on Zora's tunic. Not sure I love how the purple went on; I think I need to clean it up in a couple spots. Highlights next.

Zora: Tunic shading, Round 1

 I went back to the first round of shadow on Zora's tunic. Still needs some work on the blending, and at least another round of darker shadows, maybe two. 

My goal for the year is to finish one figure or project each month. Zora is actually pretty close to done, so I'm going to try to get her finished in February.

Zora: Hair Highlights

I'm not fond of doing hair. It's a struggle for me, every time. Anyway, I put a couple more layers of highlight on Zora's hair, futzed with it a bit, and here is where it ended up. I'm going to sit with it for a while and see what I think.
