Pirate King WIP 3

Flesh, hair (such as it is!), white done. First pass at the main coat color (not cuffs) and chest wood. I struggle with the happy medium between speed and blending via layering, not really compatible goals 🙂 For the coat, I think I’ll have to do a pass with a lighter tone to pick out some highlights, it’s just too subtle. Goal will be to keep it strictly limited to still read ad an almost black purple. For the chest wood, ye gods. I can’t really get in there to drybrush, and the relief is a bit shallow for washing to provide decent shadowing…so it’s almost a freehand deal. Results were decent enough I didn’t throw it against the wall (heh) so like the coat, I think picking out a few highlights and call it done.

The skin I did pretty stock quick job (although it’s cool to have a stock skin tone in my trick bag now!), with the addition of flesh wash to roughen him up a bit. Not a lot of hair so pretty quick-n-dirty on that. Whites…ecch. They’re there. I’m going to have to put some serious study and practice into white one of these days, thus far it’s utterly my bane.
