Speed Painted African Skin Tones

Postby Atheling » Mon Mar 14, 2016 7:02 pm

I've got a lot of Beja that I need to paint. In order to have any chance of doing this within the next few years I needed to find a way in which I can skimp on my usual painting method and start churning them out.

I pretty much decided to go for a base coat, a wash and two highlights, one of which is applied very sparingly; this is a vast improvement in terms of speed when compared to my usual multi layering method! I think that in total there were not more than about four hours spent painting these up.

You can read about my desperation to get them painted, the method employed as well as seeing many more pics on my Just Add Water blog here:

Here's a few tasters:

I've found an easy paint-scheme for dark skin
Vallejo 822 German Camo Black Brown with an Army Painter Dark Tone wash. Done!
If you love to paint you can always do a drybrush of 822 and maybe a lighet tone... but that means more work...
