Report Various questions in Tips & Advice: Painting Posted August 19, 2006 I've done several redheads. On a mage I took a white base and applied a fairly bright red. Later I added a yellow "patch" like she dyed several strands starting at her forehead and going all the way down. It only worked because of the obvious arcane nature of the mage. On a fighter with a beard I used a medium-dark red over a black basecoat, leaving some of the black showing to add depth. Then I drybrushed a mid-red over that, and then finally I caught the extreme highlights with a pumpkin orange color, again drybrushed. Came out very well. On a female rogue I applied a dull yellow over a black basecoat, then put a dull red over that, and continued on like I did for the fighter. Of all three the fighter looks the best.
