Base coated Perseus's hair. I think this will be really helpful. I definitely need darker shadows on his face, and maybe in a starker color than the purple.
As I continue to work with this guy, I'm also noticing some things about the style of the sculpt that should inform my painting choices. It's a very rough figure - the texture on the hair and face is quite distinct. There are tool marks on the surface. This doesn't make it a low quality sculpt, it's a style. But it tells me that a super smooth, super delicate paint job might not be the best choice for this guy. It might suit him better to be rougher.
I mean, look at his face. This is not a delicate guy.
