You did a really great job!  I just wish that this mimi didn't remind me of a dogs head stuck out a car window, face and ears flapping madly!

 

The teal skin and the flesh around the mouth is really well done as is the transition between the colors!  Well done!

Thanks for the renewed interest in this thread.  To answer CosmoKramer,  I believe used Reaper Suntan Flesh & Caucasian Flesh on the mouth, used a brown wash over it, then went back and cleaned up/highlighted.  The transition from mouth to body is largely dry-brush/stippling.  The blue is actually Bright Turquoise with a blue wash over it.  Then I think I dry-brushed the turquoise back over it and manually painted more highlights.  I'll post the reverse when I get home.  My one regret I have on this guy, is not doing more cleanup on the model itself before painting.

Thanks. I just picked one of these up and I'd like to get the coloring as close to the box art as I can.
