Well, second attempt to get the colour on my Fimm right was far more successful. Very happy with the way this little guy has turned out. Only took a couple of hours... by which estimate I reckon I could get the whole unit painted in a fortnight.... Hah! As if I'd be able to keep that pace up!
Much less orange! But happily Vinnie doesn't look too out of place alongside his browner comrade.
And a bit of a reminder of the inspiration for this colour scheme:
Not perfect, but hopefully by the time I get onto the big fellas I should be practiced enough to have a go at getting them close! If anyone's interested, the colour mix was:
Spray white over to pick out raised areas
Wash with (Game colour) sepia and dark fleshtone
Paint defined areas of skin with (Game colour) dead white, rosy flesh, dark fleshtone, burnt umber wash and a tiny bit of bloody red
Highlight mixing in rosy flesh and dead white
Final highlights rosy flesh and dead white
Tail and scales washed with sepia ink
