As the late, great Michael Jackson would say, "Don't stop till you get enough." I certainly take that to heart when I'm painting the "under-skin" layers. I don't stop till the baby truly looks real.
To make Amalina as lifelike as possible, I continued to add layers of blood red, purple, green and even yellow. Once I was happy with the mottling, I started to paint her veins. I'm quite picky about my veins, so do check out my Veining Tutorial for more on how it is done. :)
Once those layers have been cured and had time to set, I'm going to do a little more blue shading in the hands and feet till they look just right. Then she'll be ready for her flesh tone layers.
