I really want to make my blood dragon look really nice, so i just wanted to ask the pros how to paint an effective dead, vamp looking face. eg. HIgh lights and stuff.
Of course, pictures would be appreciated too.
Here is how I would go about getting a dead looking face:
Base in pale flesh
Wash with either a very watered down purple ink or blue ink (really just a preference here)
Start highlighting up by taking the pale flesh and mixing more and more ivory, off-white, and or white paint.
for example start with a 50/50 mix pale flesh / off-white
next 25 / 75 pale flesh / off white
and keep going.
You could always use bases of grey as well.
Remember highest highlights will be on the brow, top of nose, upper lip, chin, and cheeks.
Here are a couple of examples of pale flesh (though not necessarily undead):
Thanks for your help, slorak. Also, just as a bonus, do u have any tips to paint the face well? the model's face's are so small, and my hand isn't that steady. (I know the main thing is pratice) any others?
A good technique for keeping your hand steady is to put your elbows on the table and take a deep breath and hold it while you paint. this will help you be more steady.Originally posted by Big Bunny@Mar 10 2005, 05:14

As for painting faces well - practice practice practice. The more you paint the better you will get. Don't be afraid to experiment and try new things.
