I base coated the braids and horns on Ronso. Braids first; the color choice was easy there. I had to think about the horns a bit. At first I was thinking about going with something more realistic, and then I remembered I was painting a psychic space cat, and realism isn't really a thing here.

New projects! I started off another mermaid today. I wasn't feeling up to working on Ronso and wanted something simple, so...base coat!
I've also prepped a bust for painting, though I'm going to try to finish off Ronso before starting her.

Ronso: Mane & Body Highlights, Face, Armor
I finished highlights on Ronso's mane, and then decided the body highlights needed to go higher and did that. Then I finished his eyes and mouth, and put a base coat on his armor and jewelry. I feel like he's coming together.

Sphiranx: Now Calling It 'Ronso'.
I started highlights on the Sphiranx's mane. I've also decided to start calling it Ronso, in honor of an internet cat. That's one round of highlights on the mane; I need to do another. I also painted the straps on his armor bits and painted his nose black. After I've finished the fur, I'm probably going to do the armor, because having it unpainted is bugging be more than his horns/braids.
I spent the night before last trying out some ProAcryl paints I just bought. Here's the test figure:

I got some shading in on the mane today. Also a bit of fur texture on his feet, but it wasn't doing it for me so I stopped that pretty quickly.
I also made some progress on the angel statues, but forgot to get pictures of them again. Next time.

I got back to the sphiranx today. I did the line highlights on the main body. So far, so good. I think next I'll go back and do the texture on the feet.
