Almost the end of Amelia


I darkened Amelia’s feet, lightened the hand and jacket with a touch of zinc white, then used the same zinc white to enhance the aura about the orb just a little. A few highlights here and there, and that’s that. I might tweak the halo around the orb a little more, because I’m not quite satisfied with it. Other than that, I will do a coat of transparent Prussian Blue over the sky to darken it and bring some blue edges into the white of the halo.
