  • Skin experiment

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and as I've just started painting an old miniature which I'm experimenting with skin I thought I'd post it for some feed-back.

    It's a basic base coat then splatter layers which are given a transparent (Vallejo trans paints) really diluted washes. Followed by custom transparent mixes for the shading.

    The idea was to try and create the depth of real skin, hasn't completely worked, but I've some ideas to improve it on my next mini.

    It's still WIP and the hands and face have still a lot of work to do.

    I'm having a hard time telling, to be honest, since the light in your picture is so dark. Also, a slightly larger picture would be helpful or a link to someplace with a larger version on the picture.

        The lighting still isn't great, but with the larger picture, its much easier to see what you were going for and its really a cool effect, one that I'd like to see on a model that's mostly skin. The only thing I have a hard time seeing is the highlighting on the skin, but I assume that's because of the poor lighting. I was thinking you could do the same thing with stippling, but the paint flicking method would be much faster.

        I'm also going to stalk you on Google+. :D

          Well, stalk away, though I reckon you'll get pretty bored :), I don't post much.

          Your right, stippling will give much more control, but it is very time consuming. The figures back is the only part without skin on show, but the pose doesn't show much of the legs, so I see what you mean.

          I'm going to try and perfect this technique over the next few mini's. Hopefully it will work.

          I'll try and get something up over Christmas

          How about yourself, do you paint?

            Its okay, I follow way too many painters, modelers, and mini companies on Facebook, so I'm always missing something. :)

            I'm really looking forward to seeing how this comes along as it sounds like something I might like to try out in the future.

            I love to paint, but I'm pretty slow. I can honestly say that I feel like I've slowly been getting better since joining WAMP thanks entirely to the helpful folks here. I've got a WiP thread here: http://www.wampforum.com/VB4/showthread.php?t=12645 Feel free to leave comments and/or feedback!
