Started working on this guy today for one of my player.

Since I'm a "newbie" and have no experience in working with skin, I was wondering if Reaper's Flesh Wash would look ok with the Elf Flesh base-coat for the skin.

 

For the hair, the player want him to be carrot-top with a touch of grey. The could prove to be interesting. 

 

I'm also looking for suggestions for his clothing. almost anything is fair game, all though the campaign setting is in a desert/desolation area.

Looking good so far!

I don't have any experience with the flesh wash, so I can't help you there.

As far as the hair though, that's a tricky one. The thing about red hair is that it doesn't generally go gray for a very long time, it mostly just gets lighter and lighter. What I would suggest would be to go for a lighter ginger and only bring the gray into his sideburns. Maybe google pictures of Robert Redford in the last couple of decades for reference pictures.

 

As far as clothing colour, green will look nice with red hair, but may not work with your desert theme. Maybe stick with browns, tans and cream colours and maybe a yellow-ish green as an accent colour on places like the trim of his tunic and the clasp part of his cloak.

After screwing up a wash on his clothes, I ended up stripping him down and putting him up in the WIP shelf.

 

Came back to this thread in hope of finding out what colors I used originally since I lost the notes I had taken, but no such luck. (man I'm bad with documentation).

 

Going to try to start him over to try to relax after being in classes all day.

      Pretty happy with him overall, although he's a little washed out in the piccys (He's got awesome abs in hand!).
      Gotta remember in future to not use metallics for their face-masks though, it just doesn't work right.

      Still have to base. 
      Still feel like show needs more. 
       
      Anyone think the lines on the cape needs to be dark lined instead of white?

      Another one where I had trouble coming up with a colour scheme, but I think she looks okay, just rather colourful!

      Hello everyone, this is 02473, Aramil the Elf Sorcerer sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I like the shoulder pads and the way the overcoat is textured. I went with a reddish color for the staff to complement the colors of the clothes.

      I haven't done a WIP in quite a while, and I want to keep committed to clearing my Shelf of Shame for the year.  So here's an unfinished mini from my shelf:  Reaper 77108: Shadow Dragon:


       
      I had assembled & primed this mini before, but hadn't painted it, so it sat on my shelf for a while.  So two nights ago, I washed it, sprayed Stynylrez black primer over it, then sprayed a base coat of Burgundy Wine. 
       
      ...and that's where it stands.  Hopefully, I have an opportunity for more work tonight.
       
      I don't have any ideas at present for what the color scheme will be, save that I want it to be purple.
