    Hi Christian

    Great stuff mate , it's a nice looking uniform as well red facings .

    Like the flesh tones and the greens ..what colours did you use ?

    If I may I think the lips are IMO not quite right ..need toning down a little ..apart from that rather nice

    Thanks for sharing

    Hi Nap,
    the colors i used are Scale 75. For me they give a better mate finish.
    Green is Black Forrest with brown leather for darkening the tone. Shadows with black leather, lights with sherwood green. I painted the green 3 times till i was satisfied with the result because in the beginning the contrast of my mixes was too hard:D
    The base-fleshtone is a mix of Vallejo Red leather, sunny skin and white, shadows with Scale 75 indian shadow and lights with Scale 75 golden skin and light skin.
    About the lips - yeah you are right. But I was too lazy to change it :happy:

    Great intense look to the eyes. Was going to suggest the lips were too purple-y but others have seen this, too. Only suggestion would be that there should be a little more pink-red around the ear edges.

    Overall enviable.
