As for colors of the dress and such, I have not desided yet. I will see how it goes.

Can you describe how you painted the eyes?
I do my eyes as follows. Note these are all MSP names applied with thin layers:
- I paint the eye with Leather White.
- I then use Walnut to go around the rim of the eye. I go pretty heavy here. I really am not considerned with the thickness of my line. I just want to make sure that I don't go into the eye itself.
- I then then painted the Iris with Oiled Leather and then Burnt Orange on the bottom part of the Iris
- I add the puple (black) with a tiny dot of white.
- The then use my Olive Skin Shadow to thin the line around her eyes.

I'm curious to see how this turns out, and I can already tell this will end for the better for sure. I wasn't to sure about the Olive skin triad, I thought it would be a bit greener for some reason. I'm not sure why... Probably due to seeing Olive drab so much. (I work at a military history/ hobby shop)
This looks like it's turning out well! I do love this model. And one of the cool things about this skin tone triad is that you get completely different results if you start with the midtone and shade down and then up, or if you start with the highlight and shade down. I had started with the midtone when formulating it but I *really* like how your example is looking with the shadow color being your base!! She looks exotic.
Just a quick note, as I did some research and looked up many examples of olive skin tones before I set about this triad. What is referred to in human beings as "olive" skin is meant to describe a very sallow or golden skin tone with very little red or pink in it. I believe it is the absence of the ruddy tones which we most often see in skin which causes it to read as its opposite/complementary color, green, even though there really isn't any green in it. In pigment terms, though, it *does* actually gain a hint of green because in mixing it I'm using ochre and black and brown oxides...ochre and black mixed create a greenish color. Most of that is overridden by the brown oxides, but not all of it...so that's probably why it looks greenish in some contexts.
Can't wait to see what colors you pick for her dress and such!
