Painting faces

Posted by Nono on 21 Jan 2010, 16:29

Hello at all ,
Here's a tutorial of how I paint faces on my figures


after having cleaned and spray painted the figure
Image

I mix my paint for my basic
bronzed flesh 60% +british uniform 20%+ scab red 15 %
Image
Image


I painted this very diluted mixture (do not domage the sculpting)on the face and hands (three or four layer)
ImageImage


shadows 1
scab red 25%+Britich uniform 35%+basic
Image

ImageImageImage


shadows 2
I added a touch of midnight blue and scab red
Image

ImageImage

Light zone
basic+bronzed flesh
Image

ImageImage


Light zone 2
bronzed flesh+helf flech
Image

ImageImage

After, can be added a touch of wihte in the final mixt , but each person has to find its sensitivity .
I hope to be clear in my bad English :?

Great tutorial! Can you tell us how much you thin your paints and what you thin them with?

Absolutely brilliant. :thumbup: Thanks for posting.

It's a LOT better than my technique (which is getting pretty backdated).

I thin the paint with : water by feeling

I bought a stock minight blue paint before it disappears. But you can also use: the regal blue with a touch of black.

Excellent tutorial. Text is largely sufficient because the pictures tell us so much more.

Un grand merci d'un admirateur
