Skin color practice

Practicing skin color is one of the most challenging aspects of miniature painting. It requires patience, precision, and a steady hand. But when done right, it can make all the difference in bringing a miniature to life.

Recently, I’ve been practicing painting skin color on two miniatures that I’m particularly proud of.

Gluttonous Dead

The first is called the Gluttonous Dead, a monstrous creature with green skin, opened wounds, and exposed muscles. It was a real challenge to paint the skin in a way that made it look diseased and bloated, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. The addition of the bone weapon and the skulls on the base really bring out the gruesome nature of this miniature.

Magdalena, the Inquisitor

The second miniature is named Magdalena, the Inquisitor. She is a beautiful yet deadly nun, with a blindfold covering her eyes and a bold red lipstick. Painting her skin was a real test of my skills, as I wanted to capture her seductive yet dangerous nature. But with careful layering and blending, I was able to achieve the perfect skin color that really brought out her beauty.

Overall, practicing skin color has been a rewarding experience, and I’m proud of how much I’ve improved. Whether it’s the slimy green skin of the Gluttonous Dead or the seductive skin of Magdalena, I’m always looking for new challenges to improve my miniature painting skills.
