Hot stuff

Want to stay warm this ice cold winter?  Paint some lava bases!

This particular figure was practice for a number of videos.  Painting Lava, OSL, NMM Flesh tone, you name it!

It is a delicate balancing act to keep all those opposing forces working together.  The super saturated warmer colors of the lava can overpower the skin tones very rapidly, making the risk of chalkiness that much higher.  Also, keeping subtle transitions on the metals can get a little crazy.

Still it is always a fun exercise!

  1. I haven't heard of painting NMM on skin yet, but it seems like a cool technique!
