I decided to leave the eye. Need to figure out how to paint scars so it looks intentional. No idea how to do it but I'll figure something out. In the meantime I'm working on her pelt. Not sure how much difference between the browns but I might bring it up another step or two.

Sweet eyeliner work! 

I've never done any NMM work, full disclosure, but the technique I've seen used for painting scratches (thin line of dark grey for the shadowed face of the scratch, adjacent to a thin line of very pale grey for the light-reflecting face) might work for scars if one palette-swapped to pale pinkish and dark pink? (Or, given her complexion, pale lilac and darkish heliotrope?) 

Which side is dark and which is light depends on whether you want the scars to be raised keloids or gouges. 

I could see her having an Ahab-style vendetta against whatever monster or giant gave her those scars.

I've never done NMM either. I have those weapon sprues from Bones III that I plan on using for practice but that requires time to do it and right now I'm back logged. But I think that might work well. I'm thinking of doing it as a gouged scar.

I think I somewhere have got the old Painting Faces masterclasses of Citadel painting. There was a section on scars. If you're still looking for a solution, I can have a look if I find it and send it to you.

I am still looking for something. That'd be great! 

 

Started back up today after I was struck by illness briefly. Need to do major touch ups. Here's updated photos.
