    I’m working my way up to trying this model. Any advice? Your take is great

      Thanks! I was intimidated about doing the face on this one at first, so I tried to do similar to the box art for that. It was great for guiding where to place the shadows and highlights, especially around the eyes.

      I put a lot of time on the eyes and skin first. But then I was on a time crunch to finish her for our paint club meeting! I decided to rush with a plan - textured cloth, so that brush strokes are fitting for it.

      I placed the yellow as to frame the figure. By making a circle with it, everything is pulled together.

      Plan out Order of Operations, because otherwise you’ll block yourself out of being able to paint stuff without goofing it.

      I assembled the neck, head, body, main hair, and stand and painted that. I put the hair ornaments in later. The pins are a pain; don’t do what I did and detach them from the sprue before painting. Paint on sprue, cut them off, plan where to place them, glue, then touch-up. There are dimples to guide them into place.
