Slow work on her base and lining and shells . I hate all the little strings she has, they are really difficult to pick out without smearing to her skin. The sting ray on her base is mostly done and the sand is good. More highlighting planned for the star fish and picking out her little shells and beads and things.

 Are you using any sort of magnification to paint with? That will make it a bit easier to work with... 


Also, one of the best ways to do thin straps like that is to paint them all black or another dark color and don't worry about getting any on the skin - in fact, you'll want to leave a thin, even outline all around the straps on the skin beneath them. Then you just carefully dry-brush the straps with whatever color you want them to be, leaving the darker color showing where the shadows would be. You now have shaded and dark-lined straps that just need some highlights. The dark-lining around the straps will make them show up against the skin more and really make them pop.

Its more so that the bits are tedious to paint and in funny spots. I do intend to leave them darklined and carefully highlight.


 I don't use magnification mainly cause I hates it precious.. and my eyes seem to do the job without it at the moment, nearsightedness +1 :P. However if I try painting with glasses or contacts in makes for a horrible exercise in frustration.    


Hopefully more progress shots today if I can get the homeworks done.  Thanks
