Painting the skink is turning into quite a different experience for me. I usually take a lot more time to plan everything out and then proceed at a gentle pace, carefully considering each step before I make it. This time around I'm pretty much flying by the seat of my pants. Much to my own surprise I'm really enjoying painting this mini!
Something else that's very different for me is the way I'm going about the painting. I would normally work each area up to it's finished state before moving on to the next. But this time I'm moving back and forwards between the areas as I work on them. This gives me a bit of extra flexibility to adjust things as I develop my ideas for the colour palette. I'm beginning to think that this mini may have quite an impact on how I paint in the future.
