Try adding some slight glazes of different colors to the skin in the shadows like red, green, blue, or purple depending on what you see her ethnicity to be and the temperature.

Good suggestion, I was waiting till after higher/highest highlight to decide which direction to take the deepest shadows. The shadows already have RMS Mahogany Brown (a reddish brown), but I thought that too drastic for a smooth transition.  I like the glaze idea, so i'll have to think on that.

As you've seen from my own WIP's, the glazing is where it's at to make the skin transition into new and interesting colors when you hit it in just the right spots. Very very thin and layering it in so it tints to where you want it.

As entertaining as it would be to try and paint up that kind of fur, I'm not sure it fits my base idea.  I'd have to have her in the middle of a field of flowers w/ butterflies.  Not feeling it.

More Highlighting on the skin.  It is amazing the change a little highlighting can do.  Still debating the glazing ideas are solidifying in my head now that the highlighting has progressed.  And after reading on Ub3r's barbarian WIP the motto of higher highlight etc.. I went a step higher.  To be determined in I need to go higher after the glazing / tinting.  I left the legs alone to give me a visual reference of where I had stopped.  Highlighting will follow later.

OK, with me on the final steps of two of my other mini's I figured it was time to pick this one back up again.

 

Yesterday I got her legs finally highlighted.  Only I realized I chose the wrong skin colors.  I then spent today fixing the colors and then threw some brown down to frame the skin.

I then decided I had a few extra minutes, so I base coated the hair and chain mail bikini.

Very nice!

 

What colors are you using for the skin tones?

 

The Tanned skin recipie from Powells (aka Bailey03) Blog.  Substituting RMS Mahogany Brown for shadow.

      Ok I don't do that many WIPs but I thought I'd try on this one. This is so far a base coat and 6 layers of shading. I like to use glazes so the build up is very gradual and I have to remember that everytime I start a mini lol. I will put down about 10 more layers going down all the way to a deep purple. This is at the pure tanned skin shadow phase. It will be slow going due to work but I will keep up with it. Comments and criticism welcome and before it gets mentioned I removed no mold lines this is more of a proof of concept to see if I can finish a wip post and how my skin painting is coming along. Thanks!

      Howdy y'all!
       
      I know I am rather new to the forums but I thought I would introduce a bit of what I have been working on pre and post ReaperCon 2018. No doubt I have met with some of the forum denizens here, most notably @Green Eyed Monster for sure. Hopefully my presence here will be a welcome and fruitful one, and I look forward to talking and learning from all of you! 
       
      A few months back I decided to pick up Zombicide: Black Plague, and before I knew it I was neck-deep in medieval zombies. I told myself I would save  the heroes for after ReaperCon to employ some of the techniques and improvements I would have learned. I... uhh... sorta did that. Let's just say I quickly became tired of the derth of zombies and wanted to focus on more...noble...aspirations.
       
      The Goal: Get 'er done. Preferably by the end of October. Because what better way to say 'Thriller' like a box o'zombies. I am shooting for tabletop standard for the standard fodder zombies, with tabletop+ for the heroes. Not quite display level, but certainly a cut-above your bog 40k Guardsman (ifyaknowwhatimean hashtag don't_tell_the_commissar). I am loosely following the box artwork along with Sorastro's YouTube series, but I certainly am not married to everything. I will try to make a note of any techniques I employ that I have learned either from class, trial and error, or from online tutorials.
       
      Since this is my first original content post here, please let me know if I am doing anything incorrectly or against forum etiquette, as this is not my normal venue for sharing!
       
      So grab a cup and buckle up, cuz we are fixin' to see a whole lot of pictures of the scenic countryside of Zombicide: Black Plague.

      Playing with Secret Weapon Miniatures weathering pigments (finally...) Making a rusty wrought iron fence is really fun! I think I need to add a few more shadows to make the bits pop. I'm pretty happy with this, but C&C welcome and appreciated!

      Fun Dark Sword mage that I finished recently. I painted her fairly quickly so I did not do a WIP thread. I am really happy with how her skin turned out, I think skin is finally clicking with me. Also tried NMM gold for the first time and actually really enjoyed it. Defintely will do more NMM in the future as it made painting the fiddly bits easier. TMM was a pain when I previously painted Dark Sword Miniatures with similar ornaments, it’s good for large areas not so much for tiny ones. One last thing is a slight conversion, she was sculpted with a bottle in her hand that I made into a mushroom to tie her to the base more.
