Talk to the hand

Got another one to submit, but still needs its base.  Mr. Monk here was a pretty fast shot.  I tried to keep colors as simple as possible (which may or may not have been left over colors from my owl bear I did) to just keep the paint moving.

 

BATTLE REPORT!

 

Wins:

*  Used a flat flesh color with the simple Reikland Flesh shade wash.  Combo worked well, but dude looks a little...odd.  Will have to add more warmth next time.

*  Brown hues and simplicity of the scheme helped.

*  Really enjoying doing townsfolk because of the limited details I need to get into.  

*  Hair felt much better this time.  Going with a dark brown, up to a mid brown, then highlight in the ridge of the hairline.  

@Inarah I used your method on rope on his belt.  Worked!

 

Opporunity:

*  Playing with flesh tones and how to raise the contrast is very difficult for me.  Without making it look...fake.  I keep trying to find easier ways to do it, but I think it's just gotta invest to get the best results.

*  Cape volumes didn't really pop.  I was hoping for more depth in the contrast, but it didn't show through and I wasn't willing to push it further after a few failed attempts.  

*  Painting with bone white or ivory continue to plague me.  Multiple layers needed because of the chalky pigment density.  Anyone got a solve for this?

 

For a base, I'm thinking of including some kind of cross or something behind him.  We'll see.  I found some pretty nifty little wood engraved sets at Dollar Tree (loving that place more and more these days) that will work perfect.  Speaking of which, I have a demon hunter I haven't based yet, that could use one of those, too.

@Krasslinggreat question!  I had some feedback on another mini i painted where someone suggested using a linen color (or light color) and wash it.  I did exactly that, but went back in after wash dried and highlighted each section of that belt further to show it better.  Worked like a charm.  I can't remember who said it, but they were right! 

 

Thanks for the positive feedback.

Thank you. Looks really convincing. I have to try it that way myself.
