Bombshell Babes 10037 - Serina the Steampunk Mermaid

Recommended Posts

Looking forwards to it! Planning anything special for the base?

Sand, ripples, light passing through waves, maybe a few starfish.

Looking good so far!  I picked her up a while ago, she really is a cool model.  I'll have to live vicariously through you until I can get to her.   I like your ideas for her base.

I've done a bit more work, slowly, between other projects.

 

I smoothed out the yellows and painted her face.

A month later I gave her more silvery highlights.

A month after that I thought no, dang it, I want her to be really golden. I glazed her all over with Hansa Yellow Light (which is a regular Golden paint, not a matte fluid acrylic, which I used because it is transparent).

Speaking of slowly, I'm back to her!

 

I made a soft mauve from Ultramarine Blue, a tiny dab of Phthalocyanine Blue, Quinacridone Crimson and Titanium White and painted her blouse (using a bluer mix for shadows and a pinker mix for highlights).

And I slathered some copper metallic paint on her goggles, telescope, and gun, and silver on her armor. Normally I do a colored underpainting but I have taken so long to get to this and I am curious to see how it will work this way.

So you are working on a remake of the little mermaid? I really like that idea.

 

Put in some steampunk theme, crime, action and (of course) some HBO speciality, mix it - et voilá: Mermaid S.I. (Submarine Investigator).

 

Starring:

 

Ariel, the younger sister of Arielle and a selfmade private investigator

Sebastian, a crab and estate manager of Triton's Nest, an estate next to the Mariana Trench. He is know for having two sea lions, called Claus and Angelo

Fabius, a former military dolphin who now runs a bar called "the black smoker"

"Prince", a SEAL (play of words, yes) who is introduced as love interest for Ariel

 

Oh, boy. I that would be soooo great!

But afar from that. I like her face. Great work. Keep it up.
