I would go in with some reds/pinks and some yellow greens to bring out highlights and add depth. The eyes are bugging me a little for some reason as well...

It's coming along GREAT though! I LOVE the base and the way you made it look like the rock wall sets from the films! Plaque looks great as well!

I'd say the biggest thing to do is break up the green with some different green tones and some contrasting reds as mentioned above. Keep it up!

thanks for the advice! ive been trying to do a bit of that with the lighter greens, its hard to tell in the pics, but i kinda hilighted the brow with a few differant lighter greens and also differentiating the fin and gills with various shades of green and even a little brown. and i also did a bit of hilighting with the same brown under the mouth and on the neck, but it needs allot more, and i agree that it needs some reds in it too..

and as for the eyes, their just temporary until i can find some better looking ones. right now their just some cheep foam halloween eyes i got at michaels for like $.99
thanks again for the compliments and the advice!

sorry for not posting in a few days, i kinda let it sit for a while to see if i could figure out what else i could do, and after a day or two i decided to add some red highlights to the gills and back fin, and also added more tan hilights to his neck and under his houth but they dont show up well in the pics..
