Progress is seen easily, good that you broke the skin color with adding red.
How does it look now?

Looks smooth at first sight, but the color you used looks very much like your primer, so it's hard to judge right now.

So after being absent from doing any painting for what seems like forever.....I have returned with an attempt to see if my skills have dwindled down and hoping to continue with the road of becoming a better painter.

At the moment going a little bit on a larger scale....War of Zodiac -Tauro (1/20 Bust).....had this guy for the last two years and decided to dust him off and get some paint on him.....(sorry for the pics....will provide with better ones shortly)

As usual C&C are always welcomed

yedharo busts are cool :)

paintjob looks good so far, but you need to define sculpt details better. Pull the highlights up (in extreme case almost to pure white) and paint eyes so that we can see them.

Back again with some more work done. Becoming more pleased with how this is turning out. Having trouble in deciding on what to do with the eyes -_- Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

As always C&C are always welcomed.

Thanks

I would paint them normal like humans have, or maybe some kind of 'devil's eye':

I really like the sculpt it's cool :) the skin is nice and it's quite dark too. Have you thought about perhaps making the eyes red with a glow to counterpoint the darker skin? :) also it would give you another painting challenge.
