Mermaid progression 8/05/10

It is progressing.
Here's where I'm at so far.

I started by painting the turtle. He's was looking pretty good, so I started on the mermaid.
She's looking good so far. 
Her hair going to be a challenge though.
I painted out the little sea horses in her hair. They might come back.
As you can see I haven't started the the single fish in the lower right or fish on the left yet.
I believe I'll start figuring out their "local colors" next.
They are going to be a bigger challenge than the hair.
I want to make sure I don't go color crazy.
I'm considering a rainbow effect.
Or maybe limiting them to 3 or 4 colors.
After I get everything mostly done, I'll go back and finish off the whole image.

It looks great, and how original that she is an aboriginal mermaid. I also like the turtle, looks amazing!!
