Default Re: faces

I can tell you what I do, which works okay.

I use a light touch. I first undercoat all my models black. I then try drybrush or lightly brush raised areas of the face with skull white. There is still a ton of black visible though. This will help highlights, and should help with creating the whites around the eyes effect.

I then slowly (with a thinned flehs color) paint the faces. Finally, with a very low bristled brush that has a good point, add in the eyes.

I hope that helps.

Here is a link to a good face tutorial. It can be very affective when done patiently.

Painting faces is really easy now with the new Foundation Paints.

Just add Tallarn Flesh as a basecoat
Then give it a 2:1 watered down wash of Flesh Wash
Then add highlights with Dwarf Flesh
Then the final highlights are either Elf Flesh or 50/50 Elf Flesh/Dwarf Flesh

Hope this helps
