well I think you have done some great work on him.  nice detail work especially. 

a very monstrous figure. 

 

as for criticism - I think the boringness you complain of comes from the skin being all the same tones -

you might add some red or  tanning on the shoulders, freckles or liver spots scattered in various places (basically stippling dots intermittently) 

or add some blue/purple shadows to shadows lower on his chest, but not at the top ... that sort of thing. 

just to increase the variation across the large amount of skin.

I think you're on to something there, I was much happier with Eddie and he was mostly skin too, but he was also covered in veins that broke up all that flesh.

I've still got two of these big mutants to paint up (Eventually), I'll try and put more work into their skin.

I think it looks incredible. Personally, a little simpler but perfectly executed is ideal. Maybe the skin doesn’t have loads of stuff going on but not everything needs to be busy all the time, the boils and wounds it has look great. My personal opinion would be to just vary the color of the boils to include some purples and blacks like bubonic plague or maybe some bright infected greens or oranges. Maybe even some gooey leakage from some of them?  
 

Too much “stuff” gets cluttered to me sometimes, I think color alone could give a little more variation.  But you guys are WORLDS ahead of me in terms of skill and knowledge so just my $.02 to be taken with a grain of salt.  Awesome work, truly amazing skill with a brush.

      Hello there!
      Now it's no secret that I'm a fan of Games Workshop minis, there's two problems with this though, I can't paint armies (I've tried, I lose interest after the first few minis) so I miss out on the interesting units, and just buying heroes gets rather expensive!
       
      Then I discovered their Underworlds game, getting little bite-sized versions of the various factions (often with fancy bases!), and now I'm obsessed.
       
      This year I want to try and put a dent in this particular pile of plastic (or, at least cancel out the new ones I'm getting), and thought a project thread might help.
      I've made a spreadsheet, ran a number generator and picked the first ten candidates.
       
       
       
      Laserian - An evil Knight and Balmonoth - Insidous Rat-man.
       

       
      The Champion - Wandering Undead Warrior (He's not actually an Underworlds mini, he's one of only two Games Workshop resin minis I brought that were cast well enough to keep, but he fits in the skeleton faction.) and One-Eyed Thabron - Orc Mercenary.
       

       
      Awil-sin - Fey Elf and Jafari - Cultist.
       

       
      Yrkill - Sky Dwarf Adventurer and Fahime - Evil Elven Assassin.
       

       
      Padean - Barbarian of the Western Plains and Elodie of the Blade - Elven Peacekeeper.
       
      Started working on Elodie:-
       

       
      Being an Elf I used Elf Fleshtone > Flesh Wash > Elf Fleshtone > Elf Fleshtone/Light Flesh, added a drop of Scarlett Red to the highlight mix for her lips, and gave her a pretty decent (IMO) pair of eyes.
      Next is her wacky hair.

      Presenting Mecha Toto, the fifth and final member of the Oz gang from Twisted by Demented Games.
      Kinda wish he'd been a bit furrier as all the armour plates came out a bit bland.

      Good day and Happy Holiday everyone, not a Christmas related model, still I managed to paint this one last week. Games Workshop Warhammer 8572M, Necrarch Vampire on foot sculpted by Mark Harrison in 1996.
      I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. I used 09274 Vampiric Shadow for the skin, shaded with brown and purple. The robe and cloak are mostly 29843 Solid Black, 09279, Fresh Blood.

      Presenting my Beastman Champion and true child of Atmos (In my own fantasy setting I base some of my Games Workshop stuff in, Beastman are a race of former humans who were changed by worshipping an ancient, goat-headed god called Atmos. Occasionally, an actual goat-headed Beastman will be born amongst them and will be considered Atmos's offspring, they then get all the best food and stuff and grow up to be one of the leaders or shamans of the various tribes.) Who is from the Warhammer: Underworlds range by Games Workshop.
       
      I'm super pleased with how this guy turned out, but I really need to buckle down and actually finish one of these Underworlds sets.

      Presenting The Bride of Nurgle, the leader of the Nurgle warband in the game Warhammer:- Underworlds by Games Workshop.
       
      I don't usually post my Underworlds stuff here, but I felt this one deserved it.
      Annoyingly, I did a really good job painting her face but you can't see most of it once her fringe is attached.
