Although I liked the basic color scheme on Merman here, the paints were unfortunately just that: basic. I've added more colors to the coral armlets/ankle bracelets/armor, weathered him, added some shadows. All this was sprayed with dullcoat prior to coming back with a glossy metallic green and saphire blue and brushing all his raised areas. The result? Now he actually looks like he has scales. Fishy!
