Welcome to Librarium Online!
Looking at the new Island of Blood models and the knowledge the the High Elves are being released the following month, I've decided to start up my high elves again.
I want to paint them in a similar way to the elves in Hellboy 2, but I have no idea how to do the skin.
Does any one have any suggestions? (Prefrably with GW paints)
It's fairly pale, almost white. So I'd probably prime white, paint on Elven Flesh then highlight with a thinned out Skull White. If you are looking for a bit more detail blend up the White, and maybe even try using a bit of Gryphonne Sepia or Leviathan Purple.
I'd go 50/50 white and bleached bone, then wash with gryphonne sepia, highlight it with 60/40 white and bleached bone, then 70/30, 80/20, 90/10 then pure skull white on the highest points (nose eyebrow chin cheekbones). You could probably get the same sorta effect if you swapped bleached bone with elf flesh, denheb stone or kommando kahki.
