The concept I have is very muted and ethereal. Her skin will be in shades of muted blues and greens. Very stormy sea colors with subtle mottling and striped patterns on her tentacles. The bodice I'm planning on a dark gray-blue with cream lace and dark greens, blues and antique gold for the bodice inset, maybe a pop of brick red in the fish's body. The base I'd like to keep simple probably black with some highlighting over the details to bring them out.
