    Hey everybody! :)

    In a week there's the annual carnival festival (159th at my location) in my country where everybody's dressed up with a costume. During the last day main roads are closed so that the parade-vehicles can move around where everybody's gathered. There's also free drinks-all day (Thought of Mr. Micron! :D:D).

    I run across a post on fb from the municipality asking for volunteers for help and various works. Contacted him, informed him that I'm into drawing with airbrush and stuff and that I'd like to help if there's a need.
    * Also cause of @MeeshellMP interview I've watched where she was reffering about exposure to the public.

    Saturday got a call to ready my equipment and go see what I'll paint. A mermaid.
    I s#^t my pants a little! :Dlollol
    Now that's a multi-curved surface and an entirely unknown surface for me. The cherry-top was that it has to be finished by the end of the week. I took the oppurtunity and have reached this point. I'll make later a SBS (kind of) cause I never done this either so that future abers know what NOT to do :D.
    Got just two pics right now, start and recent point.

    Wow that is awesome. Looks like a fun project and a great opportunity to get seen by the public. Certainly makes for an interesting conversation piece :)

    Appreciated Joe. Yes, very fun indeed (was anxious though) and conversation piece it become! :)

    Yes it is, :)

    Me too twood, and be happy too

    Thanks SiRoxx, appreciated :).

    BTW got a Q though. I want to apply clear coat but the ''boss'' told me that he could to it with clear coat for wood, probably with a brush. Will that be compatible with wicked? I've also applied transparent sealer with flakes on top of her tail. I'm gonna do a test first but just in case you know
