Building up the skin tone with a second layer, the boys are beginning to take shape as people instead of blobby blue things. Pretty rough at present, looking forward to subsequent layers refining and fixing them. Half of the battle of painting is knowing when to stop so that what you have that is working can be preserved for next time you work the image. When it’s dry you  can simply wipe away new work if it’s no good, while working with it wet can be disastrous.
