Hello,

the search function did not gave me a hit.

I want to paint some arabian models with medium dark skin and some african models with even darker skin.

What i need is a tipp which base colour i can use. After the base painting i will use the army painter to " work out" the details.

In this step the skin will become darker.

So hope somebody around her is able to help me.

Thanks

For cathayan skin, I used bestial brown followed by snakebite leather and bleached bone, for dark skin it's scorched brown followed by scorched brown/desert yellow and highlighted with desert yellow.

Yeah start Darker and then layer on lighter colors. It might take a couple tires to get it right. Also remember that some skin tones have more Yellow or pink in them. So there is nothing wrong with mixing a little pink or yellow into the mix.

As you may have seen in my WIP Aribian Tomb Robbers thread it worked out more than fine.

I can't tell you how happy i am that this color scheme worked out so well.

Thousand thanks again.
