What way is everyone going to paint this guy? Something P1-ish but not exactly a P1 is what I'm thinking.

Oh btw im using FW inks, anyone got a good mix to get a good base skin tone? (you know the OFF white colour )

ive tried several ( along with several other acrylic paints mixed in ( which is how the problem came about DOH! )

im running short on white now, so if anyone has a 1 drop of this and 1 drop of this mixed with 5 drops of white etc mix it would help to stop future wasteage on hands and feet i have ready to paint.

I used Translucent antelope brown for mine, just gave the base white coat a misting over with it and it came out quite nice. I alos fix the colours in layers too uisng a spray fixative to make sure they don't rub off if I brush against it.

still nowhere near happy with this, but im enjoying it anyway.

i think ive got the basic colours for the mouth sorted, although they are showing up very pink in the photos, ( i think i may make it a whiteer pink anyway )
i used waterd down pinks with a cotton bud and a thin brush for the mouth.
Oh how the hell i do the veins? i remember someone sayin summin about a cocktail brush, whats the technique?

anyway pics below.

Nice work Lee, like it like it. it looks the dogs danglies. As for veins use a fine sable paint brush or even a really thin marker. That should sort that out.

Like the work you're doing on the mask Lee. And I really like the fact that you didnt blast the mouth with solid pink.

Becareful with the inks and mixing them with acryilc paints. Ive been mixing an acrylic brown color with my yellow and it has been giving me cloggin problems. I think that since the inks are alcohol based they dont mix well with acrylics.

Im looking forward to your finished mask pics.

Hey Lee, Great work, seeing it painted reminds me of a wang mask. For the veins, i used a pointed toothpic on my last mask, i just dipped it in ink and started drawing. If you do this, be sure to wipe off any excess ink so it doesn't bulb on the tip of the toothpic and blotch in the mouth. Hope this helps dude.

Great job on the painting dude. PEACE

Way to go Lee!!! From start to finish. I really like it man, it looks great. I can't wait to see it with some dredlocks and some quills on it. Be sure to keep us updated.

I hope to see more stuff from you in the future.
