Here's a collage of the painting progression I did on Amethyst. The gem on her chest can be better. I should've never added black to make a darker shade of purple. It's just silly.
This piece was fun to do. And fast too. The quality is more of a sketch, clocking at under 5 hours of work. Most of it was sanding. And I didn't even do a good job on that front. On to Lapis and Garnet.
Oh, here's the turnaround video of the sculpt. Enjoy!
