I wish we could have seen your steps on painting the skin and hair! 


I am really impressed by what you have so far!


Unfortunately when I get in the groove, I forget to take pictures and it would be hard to lay down steps for the skin as I constantly work back and forth between colors. 


Fortunately though, I restarted the hair so I will try to record the steps. I started with a full basecoat of Blackened Brown then a rough coat of Earth Brown on the strands. I ended for now with a similar layer of Chestnut Gold and up next I will start roughing in directional highlights. 


Oh, I also finished the leather and eyes.

Hair is done. Smoothed out the previous steps and fine tuned the highlights and shading. Lots of back and forth layering and glazing. Colors used from dark to light: Blackened Brown, Earth Brown, Chestnut Gold, Palomino Gold, Buckskin Pale, Golden Blonde, and Linen White.

Quite impressive! Thanks for sharing




After looking at the pictures, I might do some more work on the hair as the highlights are not really showing up. But it also looks like my lights might be washing it out so it may just be the pictures.

Alright did some adjustments on the hair. Mainly increasing the highlights on the “light” side as well as adding a bit more Palomino Gold to make it slightly more yellow. Then I worked on toning the “dark” side down with some glazes of Blackend Brown. I think that help define the lighting situation, still not perfect but better than it was. I also started basing the metallics using various mixtures of Pure Black and Aged Pewter.


Also I adjusted my lights for these photos and they are pretty close to what he looks like in hand.

      He was a leftover from a group of pathfinder mini's I primed but forgot to finish from my last posting.

      I am planning on running a Savage Worlds Tyrnador campaign.  The campaign steals heavily from the new Pathfinder Savage World ruleset. 
      My son created a hallfing commander and he chose the halfling with the torch from the Dungeon Dwellers set as his character.  I modified the mini by adding a banner (after watching several tutorial videos).  He selected a green 4-leaf clover on an orange background for the banner.  Was a fun little project with some neat freehand.


      His friend created a dwarf ranger/smith as his character and choose the Stonehaven Mechanist (SKU 2795) to represent him:

      And a third NPC - his day job is boatswain, so I wanted the armor to not be full plate.... he's currently helping the party do a fetch quest for the captain. I'm pretty satisfied with what I got out for what I put in - but I do notice I seem to have forgotten his eyebrows!
