Looking good so far! Do you have a reference photo you're following? I find that helps for the little details later!

 

Thank you! I have a couple of pictures of the character and of Ben Komets's version saved. His have already been useful for the shadow and highlight placements of the skin.

The wife and I have been looking at the Komets version and it looks like he used green around the neckline, under the jaw, under the nose, around the eyes and brow, and then glazed back over with the flesh shadow. She says something like a green shadow thinned down. Also it looks like he added some red to the cheek, nose, chin, and neck areas.

Thanks for the info, I have been thinking that as well. There is some definite green there. Right now I am mainly using his version as a guide and am not really trying to match it. I am pretty much winging it and doing what feels right for me. I might end up attempting some glazing but right now, nothing is set in stone.

I have been working on the skin periodically in between getting other projects started. Since I am building up everything slowly it has taken me a bit to get to a point that shows progress. I would say most of the shading is done on her face, just need to tweak a few areas. I have started highlighting and working on her neck.

Ok, I think I have reached the point where I need to stop fiddling with her face. I am happy with it at this point and while I wish some things were different, I seem to be working backwards now. I try correct something and it just makes it worse or I need to then adjust something else. So here she is a little washed out in the pictures, lips and eyes are next.

She has some nice skin tones, are you going to add some make-up to her eyelid and maybe rosy up her cheeks a bit with a very thin glaze?

 

Thanks Ub3r. I might do some more glazes after I have had some time to get comfortable with what I have done already. I have done a bit of red in her and the eyelid have a bit of blue on them but it is hard to see in the photos.

You're welcome. ::D:

 

Yeah, get comfortable with it and go where the mood takes you!

 

Are you taking inspiration from the show "Vikings" for her or are you going a different direction in regards to color palette for hair and clothing (as you only have some blocked-in basecoats so far)?

I am using the character and Ben Komets's version as a guideline. So while I am not going to try to match the colors exactly, the light leather and dark leather will be in the same areas and the shield will be teal but with a different design. I would have liked to expirement and do something different but my friend want this version.

Oh I must have missed that, you are doing it for a friend? As a gift or a commission?

      *********************
       
      Young, Beautiful but foremost...deadly.
      Kalista served in the Lion's, the elite guard of the High King himself, but when she refused his "attention" she found herself in the Arena.
      And there to the King's dismay, she not just survived, she won, over and over again and she became so populair that in the end the King had no choice than to set her free to please the crowd.
       
      These days Kalista is for hire as a mercenary, she leads caravans or nobles safely to their destination among other "jobs" ...
      Her reputation is often enough to secure a safe passage.
      And should some robber not know her? Well....what happens then is just adding to her reputation.
       
      There are rumours that Kalista even volunteers to fight in the Arena again but only for the right price.

      A litte surprise attack ( No WIP). A quick job , I painted her in 2 hours to try some stuff out.
       
      She's from Ironwind Metals ( Ral Partha) and she is a lookalike of Vampirella, only a "bit" more "developed".
       
      She might not be nude but she wears so little I decided to link the Pics ..because well she might as well be naked.
       
      I had fun painting her and I tried a marble green base, not sure if this worked out, but practice practice...right?
       
      Paints involved..The Reaper Vampire Skin Triad..Scale 75 Antares Red, Inktense Red, Chestnut Ink , Elven Gold, Decay Black and Deep Blue.
                                 Vallejo Dark Forest Green , Reaper Olive Green Triad.
