Doing the skin of my Renegade commander as white (think Emperor Palpatine) however I am unsure how to do the shading, do I go for a pinkish colour or a greyish colour? Anyone got either pic's or tips???
Depends. Skin isn't really white... and as for the shading that is entirely up too up. I would start with a blueish grey and work up from that. if the person is just a regular person, then pinkish.
he did say think emporer palpatine.. I believe he is refering to post Windoo encounter.
Hm, I was trying to find a picture of a Vampire I'd painted up but I don't know that I have one on me...
I believe I used a grey base, and worked my way up to white. It looks alright provided you have the patience for it.
On another model that I wanted pale skin but not quite white I've had some success with a mix of bleached bone and white, although I may have worked up from a brown in this instance. Been a while since I did it though, so I can't quite remember.
Ok, here's the way I'd do this if I were you:
Start out picking up all of the colors you'd normally use for Caucasian skin. You're flesh tones. You will want to use these colors mostly the same way that you normally would for caucasian skin.
Also, pick out a medium gray color. Something not too light and not too dark. Mix your grey with each of your flesh tones as you apply it to the mini.
This will make the mini's skin de-saturated- which is a strength in this case. A little grey and unhealthy looking.
After you've highlighted up as high as you normally would with skin, add a little white to your grey/flesh mix and highlight up a little more. This will give your mini the lightness he needs to appear as something we'd identify as white skinned.
