    This is my second maya. I always painted the flesh tones with an acrylic base and then lights and shadows in oils. This is my first attempt to paint with acrylic completely around the figure. The colours are all Vallejo/Model Master. The plants I made ​​with sheet metal and then painted with acrylics. I added a viper eyelashes from the foliage, typical of Central American forests. I hope you like it.

    Another outstanding piece. Interested in the flesh tone...do you mind sharing the mix for the acrylic basecoat?

    Cheers

    Many thanks to all for your comments.
    Paul:
    The mix I used for the acrylic basecoat of flesh tone is:
    vallejo colors Burnt Cadmium Red 814 MC + Medium Fleshtone 860 + 872 MC Brown Chocolate +Orange Brown 981 and a dot of green German uniform. The Orange Brown gives the orange hue of the complexion. I used this basis, but you know they are different amounts of these colors to determine the complexion. Take a photo of an Mesoamerican flesh tone that you want to paint and create a blend that is as close as possible to that color and use it as a medium tone. You can lighten with Sunny skintone 845 and orange brown and shadow with dark brown or any other. The last shadow add black at the mix. It 's hard for me to summarize all the colours .... and my english is bad.

    Many thanks. And there is nothing wrong with your explanation, I understood fully.(y)

    Looking at the photos, I'm guessing the oils you use are Burnt Umbers, Madders, etc for the shadows and Naples Yellow, etc for the highlights. Beautiful effect.

    Cheers

    No oils in this figure. It is painted all in acrylics. It's my first time in all acrylics for the fleshtones.
