WIP Critique Another Looter

    Hi all,
    I started this one last night. Its all acrylics, the face is well under way but I do have a few highlights to add still.
    My flesh mix for this one (all Reaper acrylics):
    Base = Fair skin + creamy ivory 5:1
    Shadows = woodstain brown + clotted blood 3:1 (very diluted with water about dirty water consistency)
    Highlights = Fair skin + creamy ivory 2:1 (also very diluted)
    After each layer of highlight I use the shadow mix as a wash to help blend it all together and repeat until I'm happy with the blend.
    The freckles are just woodstain brown straight from the bottle splattered on with a toothbrush.
    Any comments or critique always welcome,

    Thanks for looking in,

    Andrew, this is exactly what I needed for the bust I am working on as I use Reaper skintones exclusively for my fleshtone and I wanted a pale skintone for my current project.

    Very nice blending Andrew and very kind of you to give your recipe of mixes.

    I see now that I started off with a base mix that was far too dark on mine, Andrew. Looking at yours at this stage I see exactly where I made mistakes. Yours looks really good(y)
    thank you for posting this, it's very helpful.
    I'm going to start over:notworthy:

    Thanks Grant, I don't normally take notice of my mixes but did on this one.
    Thanks Mary, glad you found it useful
