Painting up a rat dude for a Pathfinder game I'm in. I wanted to go with an albino white rat look. I had trouble getting the skin to come out right at first. I'd gone with a medium caucasian skintone (Vallejo Medium Flesh), washed with GW Carroburg Crimson, and then highlighted with Vallejo Highlight Skin, a very pale skintone. I wanted to go with a high contrast. It ended up not working quite as well as I had hoped. Adding in some Reaper Old West Rose where the Medium Flesh showed helped a lot. In the future, I think I'll either add a midtone in between the two skin colors, or else start with a pink like the Old West Rose. The end result isn't too bad, but I think I can get there faster, and with a less mesy looking result.

I used my Scale 75 steel alchemy set, using their guide for a more blue steel for the sword and chainmail. I think I'll want to add in a bit more of a neutral steel color for the midtones. Right now, it's coming across too blue and green. After that, I need to finish up the fur cloak, do some finishing on the leather belt, and add some basing.

Thanks! No new photos, but I've gone ahead and hit up his underside with a slightly darker off-white/brown (it's a Reaper sample, something similar to the Ginger Cookie paint). Next I'll brighten up the highlights in his fur, and I think that'll be done. I've also highlighted the fur cloak with a couple of browns and added in the more neutral metallic color in. I still need to fix up the leather. I might just go with a quick wash, hit up the metal buckle, and then add a highlight. And then I need to add in a final highlight on the sword and chainmail. But he's getting close to done, or at least ready for basing.
