Deepest Africa... more Fenryll minis

We continue with the Fenryll miniatures I dug up from the archives the other day.  The colors on these are pretty good examples of what I want to do with the "How to" painting video on this flesh tone.

  I have been prepping a few Reaper minis for this particular video.

When doing a darker color such as this, you have lots of opportunities to work warm and cool shades withing the flesh tone.  Basically, you are concentrating warmer colors where you would have more blood flow close to the surface.

Also, the surrounding colors will have a significant impact on the choices for your flesh tones.  In this image, you can see that I was trying to have the warmer browns contrast with the greenish troll head.

I've got a few more of these to go yet!  Putting the white war paint on them also helps to provide a measuring stick to the color temperatures of the flesh tones, as it is either neutral or slightly cooler.
