So, after trying out the last version on the model head I painted on the miniature itself, I decided to wash the element and repaint it.
What I did not like, that although the skin had a natural feel – it lacked contrast and on the whole model seemed not to attract gaze. Moreover, it looked a bit to bleak.
Funny thing is, that I really liked how it turned out by itself – thing is it wouldn’t look good on the finished model.
As for the new version, I really like how it turned out!
The goal here was simple, more warmth, bigger contrast and perhaps a bit differently placed shadows. I decided to use the base I have been using for years now – but approach the shades much differently.
And you know? This colour composition is probably the best skin colour I ever did : ) (well, at my own, at least, using other people mixes is cheating a bit : P)
I thought that it will be more useful to show the pallet – as it clearly shows the colours.
