Here's my first attempt at really painting skin. On my earlier test model I kinda rushed the skin, and I felt it let the model down - and so I've not progressed with my other models yet [for those wondering the fatigues were a test-scheme for Desert Guard, before I decided on a woodland theme].
How do you think this skin is looking?
Chestnut Ink wash
I feel it still looks a bit 'pasty' - is this due to me having over-used the Elf Flesh (on reflection I think maybe I should have done 'edge-highlight' style highlights with the Elf Flesh, not painting large sections of the skin). If this is the case, how does one paint the hands without them looking 'tiger-striped' or like the man has some sort of disease?
Any tips to improve the skin would be really appreciated. I apologise for the quality of Pic3, my camera didn't like the hand for some reason, and also I can't get the first pic the right way round - sorted it in Photobucket, but when posting it just doesn't want to put it right!)
They look good.
I probably would have mixed GW Flesh Wash with the Chestnut ink to add a little more depth to the hands and cheeks.
Other than that, I'm impressed.
Very nice... although you use 2 (maybe 3) of the colors that are discontinued... The Dark Flesh and the Chestnut Ink for sure...
I like the skin very much!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
It's fine for Guard. Goodness know how many more of them you're going to have to do.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
