And finally

The last layers of paint were the highlights. Adding thinner layers of lighter colour to the legs, arms and face. Srtonger highlights were added to the hair, dress and shoes.


Some key pointers.

Never worry about a mistake. It can be painted over.

Start with dark colours and work to light ones.

Never worry about copying artwork exactly. The artwork crews painted were often crudely done and if it's slightly out, it kind of makes it more authentic looking. Look at the two 'd's' in the text.
The girl is also different from the original art. But so what, I'm amazed I could do this.

A simpler route would be to go down the cartoon route to start with.

There are probably much better ways of doing this and any (constructive) comments would be appreciated. These can be added to the blogs.

Thank you for dropping by.
