Here are a couple of Sea Snails I just finished up. I have some WIP photos included so you can see how I begin my painting process. For the crazy eyed snail, I painted everything including his shell, a base red purple color. For the two horned snail I decided to stick with the natural colors of the shell and let that dictate the body color. So I used burnt umber on the body to bring out the fur details. Some more painting on both, adding lighter and lighter colors but allowing the darker colors to peer through and the process is finished.
