hey, im working on my inquisitor and my brother captain stern and i cant find a good skin color. I need tips on making good skin colors!!!!
First paint on a 50/50 mix of Elf Flesh and Dwarf Flesh, then do a thinned down flesh ink wash on the face. Let that dry, then higlight with Elf Flesh.
It's quite simple, and i used this technique to create this face although it appears a little bit lighter because i use a PC Camera instead of a nice digicam:
It's not Raymond Luxury Yacht, It's pronounced throat wobbler mangrove.

My elvish name is Maeglin Meneldur.
It really depends on what tone of flesh u want. For dark flesh start with a basecoat of dwarf flesh then shade with dark flesh and highlight with 1:1 Dwarf and elf flesh with a final highlight of elf. For lighter flesh start with a base of do a tzeentch said but add a shade a tanned flesh (I don't use inks) and highlight with elf flesh then pallid flesh. Of course u can have multiple different tones of flesh and if ur looking for something else like ruddy skin I can help there as well.
i love elf flesh, i tried bronzed flesh when i started out and i didnt like it at all, sorry, this post is a little redundent, i was bored
I have read that bronzed flesh makes a good undercoat for paint, though. THen you put on dwarf flesh, then ink it with flesh wash, then highlight with elf flesh. You may want to put dwarf flesh back after the ink wash, though.
start off with a snakebite leather basecoat~(marines are OLD! characters more so) and then bring that up through bronzed flesh up yo bleached bone for the final highlights. Take a lok at my wolflord here if you want an example
My Wolflord:- check out his face
Depends one the quality you're aiming at, but for a common Marine or guard, I go for a brown head (vermin fur or the like), then dwarf flesh all over, leaving brown only in the scars, under the nose, around the eyes, and any other deep creases. then I put a highlight of efl flesh on the nose, the brows, the cheeks. Mind this is only for "quick" painting of troopers. If you want to go in for more details, I'll mix the paints and be more precise in the painting, as well as making a watered down flesh wash in the end, maybe doing a light elf flesh or even bleached bone highlight after, depending on the looked for result.
For eldars, I start with dwarf flesh, then elf flesh then bleached bone (I like them less tanned than humans).
