The Nine Balances - Nu Wa

The Nu Wa kit have three main characters.  The goddess herself (with huge wing and a tail) and two girls.  The girls are two different races.  One looks human and the other one is elf. 
I decided to give girls two different skin tones to make them stand apart.  The elf girl gets to be dark skinned with with dark chocolate/reddish hair and the human girl is getting pale skin with light brown hair. 

Skin tones are painted

 Elf girl have a set of beautiful wings.  My idea for her coloring was to make it all earth/fire tones. 
I actually got a step by step on painting the wings :D

first base color

Darker brown wash over the whole area

 next some more wash, but in more exact areas

 Highlights are added

and as a last step, I added some red/purple tips
