|The yellow outline with a bit of base colour|
Progress of "Feeding."
First was the yellow framing and outline, to get everything in shape and the proportions of the face right, with a bit of the base layering then more layering with a bit of tone,
then in come the eyes, and more colour to the skin,
then the neck is sea snailed up, this idea came to me at work waiting tables, I did not want her whole neck and shoulders in this drawing, not unlike the "Garden", just this idea of a floating head.
This was a day by day scan of the image, some days get more work done by a few hours due to work or watching the kids, making sure they don't die or damage the house.
Now and then I want to do a "W.I.P." with a step by step, but it is such a pain in the arse to scan the thing being A3, and my scanner only A4, fusing it all together on photoshop, lining it up, plus it stops me from drawing. This time I scanned before starting on the new day.

|in come the eyes and teeth.|
Teeth have become a new favorite thing, along time
ago I hated doing teeth, and would avoid them
|the shells to seal the neck|
|the mouth and tentacles. there is still the hair and|
tentacles to go, as well as the ear, and desire
whether to commit to a background or not
|finishing her off with eyelashes.|
the background is out, it is cluttered enough
