Once I get to this phase, updates will become more frequent and the light at the end of the tunnel is all the more present. For most of my builds, 80% of the build is surface preparation with the repetitive sanding, priming, and filling cycle. As of last night, this is what Kanu looks like:

Since I base coated this with the white base, I need to mask off the eyes before painting the skin tone. For the eyes, I’m using blue sticky tack. The tack is applied to the eyes with a toothpick. And here is the progression.

Once the eyes were masked off, I start off with the darker skin tone. I have two skin tones that I use, and from my build style, I usually spray the darker tone first, then preshade with the lighter skin tone. With Kanu painted in the dark skin tone, she looks like she’s been tanning.

And finally, here is a quick picture of the dragon head section of the lance.
