I started painting at 7:00am this morning. It’s 11pm now and I’m calling it a night. I took a few breaks throughout the day, but let’s just say my prediction yesterday of finishing the dead coloring stage in 4-5 days was wrong. All I have left is the hands and the trinkets on the dresser. Well and I also have to add something like a chair to the right. But besides all that, I got a lot done today. Painting had it’s ups and downs. The last parts I did were the arm on the hip and the hair, and those were the ones I struggled with. I should have stopped before I started them and worked on them tomorrow when I was fresh, but I only mixed up a small amount of flesh colors and I didn’t want to mix them again tomorrow. Luckily it’s just the dead coloring stage. I can fix everything in the next pass or two.

Below is the new progress video. I combined the last two days and sped it up even more so it’s not so long:
