Sunday I put on 3 or 4 thin layers of highlights (about 3 hours of painting). The previouse 5 posts show the latest photos with highlights. They aren't as bright as I'd like; more of a step up from the mid tone rather than a sharp highlight. This is mostly because I couldn't decide how to brighten up the mix... do I add more Rosey Skin, or do I add more Oiled Leather, or perhaps add a totally different color like Linen White?

Highlight Recipe:

2 drops Ruddy Leather

1 drops Oiled Leather

1 drops Rosey Skin

5 drops water

* as I did these highlights I added 1 drop Rosey skin and 1 drop Oiled Leather and 1 drop water. This is for two reasons; one being the color wasn't bright enough and two the paint was drying out in the well so I had to ad water to keep it thin.


I feel like I've lost some muscle tone and contrast when I added these highlights. I did not put any highlight onto the shadow areas but some layers did get on the midtone. Do I go back and do more layers of midtone then highlights again to fix this? Or do I just move to a brighter highlight over a smaller area to gain more contrast?

I'll have to go back and do some more lining soon as well; the shadows just aren't quite dark enough IMHO. That will help to gain some good contrast as well.


Love how smooth the layers are turning out. That's something I've really struggled with and it's finaly coming around.


Since I want this to be a pretty comprehensive Work In Progress I thought I'd share a couple shots of my work area.



Here's my scratch paper where I wipe off excess paint. You can see the liner mix there on the far left. In the middle is the midtone. Then on th far right is the lighter color.

Great skin tone...I look forward to seeing these progress...I have always had a soft spot for kobolds as annoying as they are when fought in a game. I think your work area is nice too except for that can of Pepsi....ugh...Do I need to mail you some Coca Cola products? ::P:
