Here’s how I do my Skorne Flesh.
- Prime Black
- Two light coats of Foundation Tallarn Flesh
- Two coats of Citadel Elf Flesh
- One coat of Citadel Gryphonne Sepia
- Drybrush / highlight with Citadel Elf Flesh
- Details (White Eyes, red scars, silver piercings)
|Step 1 & 2: Prime Black, then some Tallarn Flesh to set the base tone|
|Step 3: Two coats of Elf Flesh to get that fair, light skin tone|
|Step 4: Gryphonne Sepia wash to give us some depth and dirt in the creases|
|Step 5: Highlight parts of the face with Elf Flesh, the base color|
When highlighting the face, I pay special attention to the cheeckbones, jaw line, eyebrows, nose & nose ridge (think Worf from Star Trek) as well as the ears, crown and center head ridge. Also, hit the top of the upper lip, and the top of the bottom lip.
|Step 6: Details|
All my Skorne are getting white eyes. They’re creepy desert elves who have no afterlife! Of course they get creepy eyes!
Also, the scar on Hexeris’ head was hit with Citadel’s Red Ink, so it looks nice and fresh. I also blacked out his fingernails, so I can paint them later.
The last step will be to paint all his piercings silver, but I’ll do that with the rest of the metallics later.
