I loved this doing this piece.  It was my first time experimenting with this much flesh tone.  Overall, I am pleased with how he came out.  The original concept was going to be half undead, half alive for a game I was running.  I decided, after a failed attempt at zombie looking skin, to go a different route, two different flesh tones.  As a bones mini, there was one slight imperfection.  On his belt, there was a series of skulls.  It appears one of them got a bit muddled in the casting process.  My sculpting ability is non-existant, so I painted it as a mass of something gross, maybe a fungus or something like that.  At any rate, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed painting it!  And as always, CC is welcomed!

      It's been a while since I've posted anything to WIP, but I'm trying to get my mojo back.  This particular model has had a few new things applied to it that I was testing, but am not totally happy with.  The main thing is I'm getting paint down and learning as I go, but there's a few questions I have:
       
      1.  Ink washes - so, I'm getting a lot of pooling when using them.  I'm using DR inks with a drop of ink, drop of flowaid, and a touch of water.  This leaves it glossy and pooled in places pretty badly.  Tried going to ink and flow aid only so it'd drift more into the recesses, which helped, but still not solving it.  then I tried less ink by dabbing my brush in just a touch into the ink, then utilizing the flowaid to dilute what's on the brush in a little pool.  All in all I'm having difficulty finding what is the right balance.  Any tips here?
       
      2.  Oil paints.  I finally went for the James Wappel special here and attempted some oils.  This didn't pan out super well and could be the paint-to-alcohol I used.  My assessment was it was too thick and I didn't know how much to dab off with a sponge.  The skin color worked okay, but needed a big highlight application with acrylics after the oils dried (waited more than a week).  I tried testing washes with this stuff by doing the 'blot test' on a paper towel to see if it spread out, which kind of worked.  However, the effect of the oils spread further into areas I didn't want.  Probably my area of weakness here is not knowing how to clean it up as much.  I think the dilution on the wash is correct, but the cleanup needs some learning.
       
      3.  Overall difficulty I'm experiencing right now is trying to do too many things.  This particular model had oils first, then washes, then let it dry because I was mad at it for like 2 weeks and didn't want to touch it.  Came back to it this morning wanting to finish it, but still not thrilled with the outcome.  I think the color balance might be off or my choice of colors isn't strong enough.
       
      4.  Rope:what the hell color are you using on rope?  The rope that runs across his chest, on the club, on the barrel - I'm lost in what color to use.  I thought I'll use a Ochre Yellow and then wash over it in a brownish color to bring it down.  It's...yellow.  Not intended.  Then I thought maybe use an ivory and dye it down.  Need some input here.
       
      I know this guy isn't "bad", but he's not awful.  I just don't feel like the progress was as strong with him and I'm struggling right now with what to do and how to approach it.  I thought maybe getting a post in here and having people drop some feedback to me might help me get things back together.  Always love the help y'all provide. 
       
      I need to get into the swing of things again before Bones 5 delivery - so now more than ever gotta keep that flame burning.

      This is my contribution to the RCL trios category with @Evilhalfling and @Kuroneko. I decided on a Hampshire pig instead of spots. I love how much character the faces have.

      Good day everyone, here are pictures of 77105, Kagunk "Voorhees" the Ogre Chieftain sculpted by Tre Manor. This is the Bones version of the model.
      I added the axe blade on its spiked club, mounted it on a 2 inches square base and painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
