I can only really comment on the first model the others are too blurry. The armor looks nice. The face could use a little work. Either use a broen ink or water down some brown paint to ink the flesh. Then paint over the raise edge of the face with whatever flesh you are using. Its really simple but it will give the skin alot more depth.

i'm with the execution guy. I can't really tell whats up with the bottom few pics, and the top one could use a bit more fleshing out with highlights. keep it up though.

Hmmm ok, how do I make an ink? I was never good at faces, but how do I do it? Pour a flesh color onto a plate and then pour water over ti and mix em together'll do it?

For the face, take 7 parts water and 1 part scorched brown, and put it all over the skin.

Adds some basic shading.

First, I'd invest in a pallete. You can get one for about $2 at a hobby store.

OK, you don't need to pour anything, probably ever. You'll just waste more paint than you'll need. Dip your brush in some brown paint, let's say scorched brown, then put it in your pallette. Now dip your brush in your water cup and add drops of water to the paint. Now stir it up and add water until it has about the consistency of water. Then dip your brush in it and apply it to the flesh. Most should seap into the cracks and grooves of the model's face. That's good, you want it to bring out the definition on the face.

Let it dry and then get your flesh colored paint back out. Put just a tiny amount of paint on the brush and highlight the raised areas of the face.

Personally, I'd add a small dot of chestnut ink (with about 3:1 Water:Ink). It almosr instantly allows you to find the details on there ;D

Yeah, I use chestnut ink as well but if you want to stay on the cheap side and not buy another bottle of paint you can thin down paints you already own.
