    Doing this for a good friend,

    Wanted him done in mission so tried to make him look worn and tired.
    Some sores applied and I used blues and reds on the eyes and sockets to go for exhaustion effect.
    I also used green in the some of the flesh mix which I've rarely done but found applying this over the highs of the cheeks created a tone I really liked.

    See what you think,

    The face ain't bad but the whites are outstanding ......;)
    Seriously nice 'pale' look to the skin tone, just right for a submariner.

    Great start. I think you succeeded in portraying the "worn and tired" look you were looking for.

    Cheers for the comments guys,

    Modelled the red eyes on yours, after a day's casting Gordon......I know you have a good cry when there's a bit of hard graft to be done!

    That face is looking great so far, Gells. He really looks like he's been out hunting at sea and stressed.

    Hi Gells,

    Thanks all for commenting,

    Hi Ron, the jacket will be light grey and I'm going to try and make it a bit worn looking.
