Thanks everyone. With the earth elemental I debated doing the jagged rocks as crystals as I've seen in several versions. I debated a more grey "stony" scheme. I even considered the magma scheme I've seen in these forums, but ultimately decided he's my one and only earth elemental and I wanted a classic earthy look with some color and variation, but avoiding a christmas tree appearance. There are about a million layers of various washes and stippling different browns in there.

Mwahahaaaa! You have given away your secrets, sir! One day I will paint an earth elemental, and using this technique of "a million layers of various washes and stippling different browns," my elemental will rival- Nay! SURPASS yours in earth-itude!

 

...Or hopefully at least match it. That's a damned nice effect, and I want it for my own.
