    Hi, folks
    Here is the new miniature I am currently working on. It comes from Pegaso models, its scale is 75 mm and is a classic masterpiece from the hands of Yuri Serebriakov:

    These are the advances so far:

    The challenge in this miniature is to paint it having in mind an "atmosphere" colour. All colours have to participate in this light blue grey tone.
    Soon, more steps:):):)

    wonderful flesh tones, warm shadows but cool skin tones give a very nice feeling to what you have done so far.

    Wow, guys!
    What a wonderful response. I really appreciate that you like it so far.
    Tommy, these are the skin tones:

    [IMG]

    From left to right and up to down:

    - Oxford blue (Vallejo)
    - Oxford blue (70%) + Light rust (Panzer Aces) (30%)
    - Oxford blue (30%) + Light rust (Panzer Aces) (70%)
    - Light rust (Panzer Aces) pure
    - Light rust + Mix of Light rust + Intermmediate blue (Vallejo) + Basic skintone (Vallejo)
    - Mix of Light rust + Intermmediate blue + Basic skintone
    - Basic Skintone + Mix of Light rust + Intermmediate blue + Basic skintone
    - Basic skintone pure
    - Basic skintone + Ivory (Vallejo)
    - Elf skintone (Vallejo Game Colour) (this one is just for glazing and blendings)
    I have also used some Citadel Blood red and Purple (Vallejo) for some effects

    The thing is that I am trying to have an atmosphere colour for all the miniature. The painting is applied in thin and controlled washes. Then you apply the light and the shadows and after that you use all the colour simultaneosly to blend the effects.

    First steps with just a wash of light rust over the face:

    [IMG]

    A bit of Basic skintone in just one side of the face:

    [IMG]

    The same side, more advanced with further tones and blendings, compared with the other side with very few work:

    [IMG]

    Both sides almost done before making the hair and a few corrections:

    [IMG]

    And the final result (it gains a lot with the hair done and a good background for th pic):

    Many thanks for that information, it will certainly come in useful when I try again my acrylic painting of a face.
