|Nocturna Models Le Petit Chaperon, work-in-progress on skin tone and sheer fabric|
For a long time now, I have hesitated to make much progress on Le Petit Chaperon, which is a fantastic miniature with very well sculpted details. But I finally feel confident enough as well as believe I have the correct acrylic paints needed to tackle this beautiful Nocturna Models figurine.
|Le Petit Chaperon's fair skin is tempered somewhat by the sheer white fabric|
|With the skin tone in place, the reds of her hood and shoes look a bit darker than intended|
At this point, I would peg the level of completion for Le Petit Chaperon's skin tone at around 90%. She still needs red glazes to bring her cheeks to life and perhaps some final touch ups towards the final stages of the paint job. Moreover, her lips, eyebrows and eyes have yet to be painted.
|Panty and stockings were painted in beige-like colours|
|Le Petit seems to be suffering from cellulite on her right buttock|
If you look closely, you might be able to spot some veins showing through the skin and hopefully see enough contrast in Le Petit Chaperon's really fair skin. In fact, she even suffers from cellulite on her right buttock. Cynics might say it's sloppy prep work but hey, when life give you lemons ...
|Huge hole on her back is where the cloak will attach|
|Le Petit Chaperon's corset will likely have greyish blue hues|
I also painted some sheer fabric on Le Petit Chaperon's clothing, mainly on her blouse which looks more like a nighty as well as on her panty and stockings. The former is predominantly white while the latter two are in light beige which is one of the many colours synonymous with sexy lingerie.
|Sheer fabric treatment for what to me looks like a nightie|
I am fairly pleased with how Le Petit Chaperon is turning out so far. Keeping in mind further touch ups will be needed as more progress is made painting her, I feel I am headed in the right direction. Being such a well sculpted figure kinda adds pressure on me to paint her well and I sincerely hope I can build on the early progress made and do justice to her. Do stay tuned for more updates later.
