I struggle completely with skintones, even real human ones, and doing something natural looking but alien is beyond me. For my new elf army however, I wanted to try something new and go with an 'inversed drow' colour scheme - pale skin, with blueish grey tint, and cold black hair (p3 coal black as base). I am not sure how to transfer that idea into reality; for rank-and-file, with little actual skin showing, going with just a pale skintone base, lightgrey/blue wash mix and highlights should suffice, but the method doesn't really scale to characters with more skin showing. As usual, I would prefer to start painting with characters to set the look, and then simplify the method, rather than the other way round. These fora were always a great source of inspiration with unconventional colour schemes, and I suspect this is not a particularly original idea, so I hope to find a pixture of something similar to help me transfer the picture I have in mind to actual paint colours.
I'm finally abandoning this project!!!! This is Tom Meier's version of Tony DiTerlizzi's painting "Portrait of a Young Tiefling" It's Dark Sword's first foray into busts as far as I know, and it was a joy to paint. Although the sculpt with the base is very vertical, making the overall basing challenging. I ended up just pinning it to as flat a wood base as I could find to keep it from becoming too tall. I have my WIP here if it helps, with the step by steps and all the color info. I'm always happy to answer questions. C&C always welcome! Enjoy!! here's the painting: And the bust: A few closeups: I experimented with a full front lighting, so there is much less contrast on the backside which I'm not happy with. In a perfect world with infinite time, I'll fix it...
