Painting Renegade Indian skin tones

Postby Alfster » Wed Jun 03, 2015 10:07 pm

Howdy,

What is the best method of getting a good skin tone for the American Indians. I cheated when doing the American Indian in the Desperado set by priming with a brown and simply not painting over the face and hands however I'd prefer to get a better more authentic skin tone for the whole set in the Renegades.

Thanks.

I use a normal European flesh tone and then wash with Daler-Rowney 'Antelope Brown' ink, which is a yellowish brown. It gives a lovely golden skin tone (and shading), perfect for American Indians and Asians.

Thanks for the advice. Looks like a trip to Hobbycraft soon! I do have the ArmyPainter tone washes but I don't think they will give the right tone that I need.

I had already dropped on a more European base tone with a view to maybe dry brushing some yellow and the brown over the top.
