Although I liked the last body color tone; it was a little too monochromatic.
So I decided to repaint the body and slowly build up colors and create more skin color variation.
Still have to do dry brushing, teeth/eyes detailing and permanently attach and blend in wings.

Started detailing the head
Made the base darker, but the pics show it to be much whiter than it actually is.
Almost ready to permanently attach and blend in wings.

Still need to finish detailing the head, eyes and teeth.

Downright stunning! Can't wait for the final paint up - really dig your willingness to re-do and re-do til you get it where you want it! When I used to do big dino-bashes back in the 2000s (when I was just getting back into the hobby and had a lot more time for modeling) I used to do the same thing. :lol:

Thanks!
I hope that I can just paint the new unpainted portions and blend them into the existing painted body.
But I will not be surprised if I have to repaint the whole body….again..

Well, as usual I over worked the paint job and it became too dark.
So went back to primer white to try again.
Also reworking chest area ; made a wider divide between pecs for more visual interest .
Reworking where wings attach on top as well.
Filled in some low points on the neck.
Thanks for your interest in this bash and patience with my frequent back to square 1 process .

Too dark:

Will try again …

That quote was how many revisions ago?

Seriously though, i admire your fearlessness to be that close then go ahead and make more changes.
