Hmmm... I'm no DeafNala (he could give you an ADVANCED tutorial Just Kidding) but here is a Quick rundown of what I do. Its quick & dirty... easy.
  1. Paint the face of the lighter flesh tone you want to use.
  2. Ink (or wash) the face. This will make the face become a darker tone, with all the crevices detailed.
  3. Wait for it to dry.
  4. Drybrush with a medium flesh tone.
  5. Drybrush with a light flesh tone.
  6. Paint eyes.
The results will amaze you... of course, practice, practice, practice! Some examples...

Eldar Ranger


Ultramarine Scouts

Since I ask "What do you think?" to all Staff, I have included it here to save time.

Thanks Mordheimer!

It's not the BEST skin I've ever made, but looks cool for a fist time with a new technique. I'll apply it again with the scouts!

Thanks man!

What?!? no pics? lol

Like I told you... its a quick & dirty technique. it will not win you a Golden Demon, but will allow your models to go from blah! to pretty nice... way above table quality... and from time to time you get one that will be a real wow!

Very Happy

Yeah, tell me about it. My camera stopped working a long time ago. My brother SHOULD help me, but the lazy git won't come over to take a few shots with his fancy pants camera. Sad

I'll try with my cellphone, but don't expect much.

Take it easy! Very Happy I got my camera 'operational' again and I'm stating to take picture of everything we got. It's not much, nor it's oh-so-great, but it's passable...
