I have continued working on the mermaid today. I did her halter top and started on the hair. The purple parts of her hair still need highlights. So far, I am really enjoying this figure and how it's coming out.

I was eager to see how the colors would work out on the mermaid's tail, so I got a base coat on her scales, So far, I'm happy.
Then I went back to Medusa and worked on the patterns on some of the snakes. This is going to be slow going.

I worked on the mermaid's skin today. This is shaded and has a first round of highlights. I also changed the base tone - looking at it again, it wasn't dark enough and was too yellow. I glazed over it, but I couldn't get that to be smooth; it was all blotchy. So, I ended up going over it with the glaze color as a base coat. Now the base is darker than I wanted, but I'm going to go with it all the same.

Hopefully I should get back to more frequent updates for a while.
Anyway, I've started working on Medusa's hair-snakes. The red ones will have a pattern; the green will just be viper green.
It's going to take a while to do all those snakes.
I've also started a mermaid:
I'm going off a reference photo for that skin tone, which is just the base coat so far. I'm not quite sure it's a total match...but it's close enough that I think a bit of glazing should handle shifting it to be a bit darker and browner.
