So here's the latest update. As you can see I've done quite a bit on the insect-like ship. I decided to go with a green metalic colour scheme. I'll wait 'till the ship is totally dry before I attempt any further painting. While waiting for the lower part to dry I started painting in the males head. I laid out globs of paint in value strings of 1,3,5,7, and9. In those strings I have Yellow Ochre, Terra Rosa and Grey.
