Painting Skin Tones (Part 2)

Following on from the previous instalment of some exotic – and very Khorne inspired – skin tones, the painting machine, Bryn Hill, has another three for us to try. This time he focuses on quick, easy ways of painting darker skin tones.

Deep, Ruddy Tone

1) Base coat with Bugmans Glow base paint.
2) Shade with Agrax Earthshade shade wash.

3) Layer with Tuskgor Fur layer paint avoiding areas of deep shade.
