first stage is a basecoat of equal parts liche purple, black and vallejo old rose.

next, i simply add some more old rose, along with some gw astronomican gray in layers, building up til the result looks like this:

i then add equal parts elf flesh and astronomican grey, little by little. this step should be around 3 layers:

a very thin black glaze now goes into the cheeks, cleavege and on the side of the nose. careful here. i also make sure to clean up edges and paint the lips black. this stage is all about cleaning up.

this is where the fin starts. paint details such as eyebrows, lip colors. i also increased the highlights tons. made a new mix with 3 parts elf flesh, 3 parts astronomican, 1 part skull white and 1 part liche purple. just the absolute peaks of cheekbones, forehead and other prominent features. this mini also lacked eyelids, i had to paint those on, just underneath the eyes, used a washed down mix of liche purple and black for this.
