Lacking a closeup “before” pic as I had some fleshy highlight paint (cadmium flesh and pale flesh, both from Game Colour) on my palette one night and slapped a few on without thinking about blogging it on here.

So a badly-lit shot of my first few highlights. It felt as if some of the shading was a bit fierce (I’m guessing some flesh wash ink). I toned this down with some Bugmans Glow and built the raised cheeky muscles back up.

I wrapped up the face with a few more highlights and getting his mouth done.

Next up was his hair.Next up was his hair.

A simple basecoat of Dryad bark. I added a bit of cadmium skin to the temples so it’s not too Lego-like.

Highlights were nice and simple. A drybrush of Steel Legion Drab and Rakarth Flesh.

I wrapped up with picking out the port on his forehead. Between the extreme closeup and my aging eyes this doesn’t look great. It’ll have to do.

I’ll also need to do his eyes again. It’s not quite there but let’s move on.
