I was determined to have another bash at painting black skin. I was very disappointed with my first attempt so last night I moved on to the Survivors and Neema. I had some fun researching Neema when I first unboxed Toxic City Mall.
She is a great model and this became more apparent as the painting began.
The skin colouring has worked much better this time around. I was much bolder in my approach and layered from dark through 3-4 highlights before knocking everything back with a dark wash. I then returned to the model and picked out some more of the top edges. I am much happier with the outcome. There is still some work to do but I think that we are going in the right direction.
I may even consider including Neema in the 6 man Survivor crew. She does seem to be unique in her play style. Emmmmm ........ but who to drop, more pondering ahead.
This whole Zomtober idea is great. It provides a real focus and as a result there is lots of painting going on. I got more done this week than in the many previous months.
