Lexandro D'Arquebus Pt 5

I am really coming along now.
The armor is chipped and weathered with artists oils and MIG powder.
I used Transparent Red Oxide to tint the yellow and subtly shade it.

I have finished with the basecoat.
I need to hignlight a few hard edges and it will be time to remove the mask
I thought long and hard about his heraldry and this is what I come up with starting at upper left.

Lexandro D'Arquebus Pt3

Here are a few stages all at once.
Once the Hull Red was dry I used masking fluid applied with a sponge on it at contact points to preserve the Red chips.
Then I airbrushed a base coat of Iylanden Darksun
Then four coats of Golden Yellow letting each coat fully dry
I have also been working on the face
I went pretty standard on base coat(Dark Flesh,Tallern Flesh,)
Then it is just working it with LIGHT washes
First Ogyrn flesh to empathise shadows,then a Sepia/Green wash 80/20 to give the skin an Olive Hue.
I have also painted the tattoo on his face as described in Harlequin
"A skeletal fist crushing a small moon dripping blood"
