Werewolf There wolf, there castle.
« on: May 06, 2007, 07:07:13 PM »

 don't say this is how to to paint skin just this it is the way i did this skin.


The figure shown to actual size, base coated flesh and finished flesh.



Best thing to prime with is a spray primer, different people like or hate different makes so i will leave what brand to you.
There's black, white and gray primer's but i tend to use gray but that's just the one i like as black can be a bit too dark for me to see the detail's and the shop didn't have any white in.

Paint's used: GW Dwarf flesh, Vallejo model colour basic skintone and GW skull white.
Ink's used : GW brown ink

I allway's water down the paint's and use a tenshon breaker so it might take a few coat's for each layer, i have been told your can use washing up liquid but i haven't tyred it.
I use the same mix of paint from start to finish, so i tend to do the whole skin in one sitting.

1. I started by painting the flesh area's with GW Dwarf flesh as shown in the first picture shown below.


2. I then apply ink glazes to the painted skin area's to darken and shade the recess's and after adding more brown ink i apply it to the place's where i want darker shade's ( Between finger, eye socket's anywhere it needs darker
 shade's ) and also where the skin joins other part's like hair\fur, cloth, belt's or anything else as shown in the second picture below.
You can use a dark brown paint instead of the brown ink, just make sure it's thin enough as you don't want it to go too dark.
It's more easy to darken slowly than have to redo it all again.
How much you darken the skin with the brown ink\brown paint is depended on what type of skin you want, Eleve's would have lighter skin and more supple shading than would a barbarian.


3. I redo the GW Dwarf flesh but leave the place's where i want the shade's to be, see the third picture shown below.


4. I then add a tiny bit of Vallejo model colour basic skintone ( you can use Elf flesh for this too ) so it slightly lighter then the layer before.
I apply this the same way as the last layer but leaving the shading and a tiny bit of the last layer, see forth picture.
I redid this for the next five layer's leaving more of the last layer each time, see the fifth picture to the ninth shown below.


5. I now add a tiny amount of GW skull white ( same as i did with the Vallejo model colour basic skintone ) and redid this till i had the highlight's that i wanted as in the tenth and eleventh  picture's shown below.


Picture's of each layer



Close up showing where i applied the highlight's and you can see the difference from the shaded area's to the final highlight's better.
It also shows the imperfection's up great too.  :icon_ermm:

Gray white, or brown white?

Might want to give it a wash of a mid-tone and do another light drybrush to give it more depth?

With my snow trolls, I actually use bubonic brown as a base coat and then work it up to bleached bone.

 :Doh!:

Never caught on till now that it's a head he's holding, not a hart...  :icon_redface:

Did more work on him last night and apart from a few spots and finishing off the base, he is done.  :icon_cool:

That close to finishing that I will just post the finished pic's when done.
