Definitely looks the part. The colour is spot on and the highlights really make all the detail pop. You could add in a few places acrylic medium with white paint to add to the foam, but other than that it looks awesome.

 

For the base I recommend decorative sand. I get it in the dollar store. It is the finest sand I know of and would work perfectly for a beach base. It is so fine you could even sculpt some lines on the base and cover them in the fine sand. 

 

Did you consider adding a shell or little crab on the base?

Thanks.  I’ll look into the decorative sand.  I thought about sculpting a shell on the base.  But, I have so many minis to paint I want to reserve those type of extra time commitments to competition pieces or models I really really love.

      I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
       
      I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors!  Do I get bonus points for that?
       

       

       
      Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

      I present to you the almost nuclear looking troll that utilizes FolkArt's Ultra Dye "Purple Rain" as its inspiration and base shadow and wash.  Also included in the skin triad are Reaper Blood Red and Reaper Brilliant Red for the highlights.
       
      I'll add the remaining paint list later when they are in front of me.  For now, pictures:

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      Another Bones figure. I don't paint many non-humanoids, but I liked the way this guy turned out.

      He's about a year old now, but hey, I have to start with something here! Happily accepting critique (especially on photographing the finished work!)

      Happy Painting, y'all!
