Vampire skin with good effect of shodow/light areas thank to the contrast of blues (celestra grey, drakenof nightshade) and browns (rakart flesh, carroburg crimson, pallid witch flesh)

  1. Basecoat with :Citadel/CoraxWhiteSpray
  2. Give a couple of thin layers of Celestra Grey on the areas more in shade (e.g. lower half of the arm, lower half of the leg, below the chin)
  3. Give a couple of think layers of Rakarth Flesh on all the other parts of the body (should be two thirds of the miniature)
  4. Light shade the whole body with Carroburg Crimson diluted with Lahmian Medium (1:2)
  5. Stronger shade of Carroburg Crimson diluted with Lahmian Medium (1:1 or 2:1) on "warmer" areas such as hands, cheecks, deeper recesses of the skin painted with rakart flesh
  6. Shade just the areas covered in Celestra Grey with Drakenhof Nightshade diluted with Lahmian Medium (1:1)
  7. Bring back details with Rakarth Flesh and then with Rakarth Flesh mixed with Pallid Wych Flesh (thights, forheads, fingers, shouders, arm muscles, ...)
  8. Highlights with Pallid Wych Flesh (lines of the shoulder, knuckles, cheekbones, ...)
  9. Extreme highlights with Pallid Wych Flesh mixed with pure white
