I did manage some time to get some scales done on this girl. This step is proving to be a little time consuming.
The scales consist of some scrap cotton shirt, color doesn't matter since it will all be painted over. Individually cut scales of different size and shapes. Dipped them in white glue and made them fit together as best i could; kinda felt like playing tetris...Section above must have taken me roughly an hour.
And this project is temporarily on hold. It is currently sitting safely in the shed back home where she shall wait for me until my next break from university!
