    Two at once! Short attention span Brian? Or waiting for paint to dry?

    Either way these are both marvellous and worth close study. Hard to see how Saladin could be bettered. And kudos for using your own colour scheme for the armour. I like this better than the box art.

    I have mitigating circumstances in my defence Steven.I was not of sound mind when I chose the colour scheme.

    I used Darkstar bronze for the undercoat and gave this a wash with Lamp Black oils with Liquin.I used powdered printers ink with Liquin for the highlighting.Keep this to yourself.as.I think Steve might copy it.LOL.

    Brian, to my eye! you are tinkering with a different style/approach, as regards the flesh colours. Don't get me wrong, both are absolutely fantastic pieces of work.(y), Of which I will doubtfully get anywhere close to.:(.

    How do I put this into wording ?? ... A 'warmer complexion', seems fairly close.

    Excellent work, on both pieces, ... the end result will be 'Eye-Popping'.:nailbiting:

    High regards,

    Mark.
